Until the investigation into the cause of the Royal Oak gas explosion is determined, it is too early to tell whether claims and lawsuits for injuries and property damage can be filed against Consumers Energy. If it is determined that Consumers Energy was at fault for the gas explosion due to defective equipment or negligence by its employees, then it most likely will be possible to file claims against the gas company. These claims can include compensation for personal injuries and property damage caused by the gas explosion.
