Amount of Settlement: $4.5 million

The civil suits alleged that improper actions on the company’s part led to an explosion that caused severe injuries to two people. The negligence occurred when the propane delivery person for the company failed to check for an open gas line and failed to conduct an adequate leak check, which would have revealed an open gas line. The explosion occurred when one of the plaintiffs tried to light a cigarette, not knowing that propane sinks to the floor and loses its odor over time
