Plant Explosions and Fires
It is common knowledge that plants and refineries are dangerous workplaces; should equipment be outdated or poorly maintained, employees be improperly trained, or safety policies be violated, it can lead to catastrophic accidents. Take, for example, the plant explosion and fire at a fertilizer plant north of Waco, TX, in a small town with a population of 2,800. In initial reports, it was stated that more than 120 people suffered injuries, with many of them being critical. The damage, however, did not end there. In fact, officials reported that a four-block radius around the block was effectively demolished, with dozens of homes being completely destroyed.
Chemical and refinery plant explosions are an all too common occurrence throughout the country and even the world. Causes of plant explosions are commonly linked to the negligence of the plant owner, as well as the disregard for OSHA regulations which can make the damage all the more tragic. Regardless, however, of the cause or whether the explosion or fire occurred at a chemical plant, power plant, or refinery, it is important to recognize that you have rights that deserve to be protected.
Therefore, if you or a loved one have recently been involved in a plant explosion--no matter the type of injury that was sustained or if you have suffered from substantial property damage--it is highly encouraged that you get the involvement of an experienced lawyer that you can trust to help you seek the just outcome that you deserve. Our firm was involved in cases relating to the 2005 explosion at the BP's plant in Texas City, TX; we also represented a fifth of the crew affected by the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon. We know what it takes to demand justice on behalf of those who were injured in plant explosions. Put our experience to work for you.

These are the types of cases that we have taken on before.
