ST. LOUIS, MO, October 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Kevin Davidson began his career as a defense lawyer for LP gas companies. As a result, he has a thorough understanding of how the industry works and how accidents happen. He took driver safety classes, was trained how to safely deliver gas, and for 10 years was retained by the gas industry to investigate accidents. Kevin defended the companies when accidents resulting in injury or death occurred. After seeing horrendous burns and injuries from gas explosion accidents, he decided that he wanted to represent the victims of those who had been burned or killed.
Today, Kevin J. Davidson is a personal injury attorney who works with victims of gas explosions and their loved ones. He helps those who have suffered devastating injuries, or loss, get the answers, accountability, and compensation necessary to rebuild their lives.
On September 13, 2010 our client's relative was delivering bulk LP gas from his tractor trailer truck to an LP gas tank farm located in Jerseyville, IL. While unloading the LP gas a defect in a flexible connector caused a rupture in the gas line and propane escaped, creating a large gas cloud. Several residential homes were located close to the gas plant and in danger of exploding. Based upon evidence, our client's relative discovered the leak and took heroic actions to contain the gas. He put himself in mortal danger by turning off several valves thus saving the homes and lives of others. Unfortunately our client's father was enveloped in gas and burned to death.
The surviving family members sought the services of Kevin Davidson at the Zevan and Davidson Law Firm and filed an action against the gas services company. It was found that many of the company's safety valves were manufactured in the early 1970s and had not been properly maintained. Also, the failed flexible connector was made of copper making it highly susceptible to failure.
As a result of intense investigation and outstanding legal performance by Kevin Davidson at the Zevan and Davidson Law Firm, the family received a settlement of 2.9 million dollars. Although these monies will never take the place of their lost loved one, it is hoped that the gas companies will take notice and ensure that their equipment is properly maintained to prevent explosions of this nature in the future.
