Industrial Accidents Can Be Deadly
When tragedy strikes, you need an experienced attorney who knows how to take on the big corporations that are responsible for your injuries. From the moment of your accident, corporations and their insurance companies are doing all they can to minimize or eliminate their responsibility. You need to act immediately to ensure that your rights are preserved.
Construction Site Accidents
Texas construction sites are constantly teeming with people and machinery. When so many different carpenters, engineers, roofers and other workers are employed in the same area — not to mention using potentially dangerous equipment — it is no small wonder that so many accidents occur annually. We have a strong track record of results in cases that involve Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations, third-party liability and other negligence-related cases including collapsing scaffolds, falls, forklift accidents, crane accidents, impalement, fires and explosions, improper cleanup and maintenance, electrocutions, toxic chemical exposure, trench cave-ins, falling debris and defective equipment.
The plants and refineries along the Gulf Coast are some of the most dangerous places to work in the United States. Sometimes, the owners of these plants and refineries cut corners and sacrifice safety to increase corporate profits. We have successfully resolved almost every conceivable type of industrial accident case, including cases of wrongful death, explosions, burns, falls, electrical shock, defective equipment and others.
Oil and Gas Injuries
Explosions, chemical leaks, equipment malfunctions and other accidents injure numerous workers in oil and gas fields across Texas every year. If you suffered a serious or catastrophic injury in a gas pipeline explosion, a petrochemical accident or another incident, you may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit as well as a third party liability claim. With more than 30 years’ combined legal experience, our oil and gas injury attorneys are well-equipped to handle a wide variety of claims
To effectively prepare and argue a personal injury case involving the oil and gas industry, an attorney must have a thorough understanding of applicable state and federal regulations. In addition, the lawyer must maintain a detailed understanding of the guidelines set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Chemical Safety Board and other regulatory agencies.
Third-Party Claims & Work Injury
Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to pursue compensation through a third-party liability claim, which is a type of personal injury claim. If you were injured by a dangerous or defective product at work, you may have a basis to pursue compensation through a product liability claim. These situations are exceedingly complex. Speak with a knowledgeable work injury attorney right away to determine your next step.
Mesothelioma and Other Diseases Related to Asbestos and Exposure to Toxic Material
Workers in plants, refineries and other industrial sites have been unknowingly exposed to asbestos in Southeast Texas since the days of Spindletop. Unfortunately, these workers had no idea that the manufacturers, plants, refineries and their employers were knowingly allowing them to be exposed to asbestos. To make matters worse, workers often unknowingly exposed their families to asbestos fibers when they came home from work in their work clothes. Exposure to asbestos fibers can cause mesothelioma, lung cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, asbestos and asbestos-related pleural disease. Our firm focuses on helping plaintiffs who demonstrate significant injury and financial losses due to exposure to asbestos and other toxic materials.
