Bailey & Glasser Fighting For Justice For Victims of Gas Explosions

In April, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) reported that a failed natural gas delivery equipment caused the deadly explosion in August of 2016 in Silver Spring, MD, which killed seven people and left 34 people injured and 100 displaced. Bailey & Glasser represents more than 100 of residents in the community who were affected by the tragedy. According to the findings by the NTSB, the explosion occurred after a failed gas regulator and a disconnected vent line allowed gas to build up “to an explosive level” inside a basement storage room of a building in the Flower Branch Apartments in Silver Spring, MD. The case is set for trial in December 2019.

Bailey & Glasser also recently reached an Agreement in Principle with Columbia Gas on behalf of residents and businesses of Lawrence, Andover and North Andover, Massachusetts affected by the September 13, 2018 Merrimack Valley gas explosions. Bailey & Glasser shared leadership of the consolidated class action lawsuit with Grant & Eisenhofer and Morgan & Morgan.

Bailey & Glasser works tirelessly fighting for justice for the victims of both tragedies in Silver Spring, MD and Merrimack Valley, MA.
