An explosion in Lakewood appears to have been the result of a drug lab of some kind in a shed, according to CBS Denver. There was an explosion inside a shed on the 1600 block of Ammons street, causing a fire that was able to be put out quickly, but hazmat had to be brought in to investigate the scene. Police do not believe that the shed was being used as a meth lab, but they do think that it was being used for some other illegal drug activity. Some bystanders received very serious burns, and had to be treated at the hospital, although no other structures were damaged in the explosion and subsequent fire. The shed was being used to manufacture drugs, but police will not elaborate on what drugs, other to say that it was not meth. In any event, the chemicals reacted in such a way as to cause the explosion.
Many people who have been injured in accidents have very little idea of what negligence means, and so don’t know whether they can seek financial compensation for their injuries. Very briefly, negligence means acting in a way that a reasonable person wouldn’t do. This may mean doing something potentially dangerous, that reasonable people wouldn’t. It could also mean failing to take safety precautions that any reasonable person would have taken. If you injury was caused by the negligence of someone else, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and even pain and suffering. When your injuries are caused by another person’s illegal activity, you may well be entitled to a negligence claim.
