FORREST B. JOHNSON & ASSOCIATES REPRESENTS APARTMENT COMPLEX EXPLOSION VICTIM
On March 8, 2014, Andre Grier was in his mother’s apartment when an explosion and fire occurred causing serious burn injuries to Mr. Grier. An investigation into this event revealed that the explosion was caused by the ignition of an R22a refrigerant that was used to charge his mother’s air conditioning units. The investigation further revealed that R22a was not an approved refrigerant for the air conditioning units due to its propensity to cause an explosion.
Forrest B. Johnson and Associates have filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the apartment complex owners, managers as well as the sellers and distributors of the refrigerant used in the air conditioning unit seeking compensatory and punitive damages for Mr. Grier.
