The law firms representing plaintiffs in an action arising out of a deadly propane explosion in Toronto four years ago report the blast caused more than $25 million in property damage.
One employee and an emergency responder died following the massive explosion at the Sunrise Propane distribution plant on Aug. 10, 2008. About 12,500 residents had to be evacuated, notes a statement from Stevensons LLP, Falconer Charney LLP and Sutts Strosberg LLP.
The claim includes facts that have not yet been established in court.
Class counsel in this matter include Harvin Pitch of Stevensons LLP, Theodore P. Charney of Falconer Charney LLP and Harvey and Sharon Strosberg of Sutts Strosberg LLP.
The action has been certified as a class action by the Ontario courts, the statement notes. The certification order allows the matter to proceed against the defendants, including Sunrise Propane Energy Group Inc., the Technical Standards and Safety Authority and a number of suppliers to Sunrise Propane.
