Damage from Explosions - Real or Imaginary?

Damage to property may occur when high explosives are used for mining, quarrying or civil engineering operations or may arise from acts of terrorism. Claims for compensation are often exaggerated or comprise allegations of damage where defects are due to other causes, such as thermal or moisture variations in the building materials or settlement of foundations.
