Natural gas explosions involving consumer products often result when home appliances malfunction causing the gas to build up to dangerous levels. Sometimes substandard electrical wiring in the device or your home also may contribute to a gas explosion involving a consumer product. When natural gas explosions occur in the home, there are a wide range of parties who may be liable, including the party that installed the appliance, the entity that installed or repaired home wiring, the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer of the appliance, the business that provided the natural gas, or the company that recently repaired the home appliance.
