Whenever highly flammable chemicals are being used, there’s a chance an accident could cause a dangerous fire or explosion to occur. Chemical plant workers and those who live near these facilities are at risk of sustaining serious and sometimes fatal injuries from an explosion or fire. They’re also in danger of developing conditions, like cancer and lung disease, due to toxic exposure.

In Texas, we don’t need to look any further than the ITC Deer Park chemical fire, explosions at the TPC chemical plant in Port Neches, or the Watson Grinding & Manufacturing explosion to see the damage and devastation these types of accidents can cause. Whether you’re an employee or you’re someone who lives nearby, it’s critical to hold the responsible party accountable if you or someone you love was injured by a chemical plant explosion.

What kind of chemical plant explosion injury do you have?

Our Texas personal injury attorneys understand that chemical fires and explosions can have deadly consequences for those who work inside the facility, but industrial disasters can also severely impact the health and wellbeing of those who live in nearby neighborhoods. Some of the most common chemical plant explosion injuries our law firm helps with include:

  • Severe Burns
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Concussions
  • Fractured and Broken Bones
  • Head Injuries
  • Hearing Loss, Hearing Damage, Tinnitus
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Shattered Glass Injuries
  • Amputation/Loss of Limbs
  • Vision Loss and Eye Injuries

Along with injuries that can be sustained from the pure force of an explosion, there are other health risks associated with spewing toxic fumes into the air or releasing hazardous chemicals into the ground and water. Exposure to some chemicals can cause lung damage, respiratory problems, and cancer, while others can create neurological disorders. Whether you’re feeling dizzy and lightheaded or your ears are ringing from the blast, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical expenses, including the cost of future care
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Replacement services, such as housework and childcare
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Maybe you’re experiencing symptoms and want to see if you have a case. It could be that you were badly injured and want to know how much your claim is worth. Not matter what your circumstances are, our dedicated legal team can meet with you, discuss your legal options, answer your questions, and come up with a plan that’s tailor-made to meet your needs.

Our law firm can also help you pursue a wrongful death claim if someone you care about was killed in a chemical plant explosion.
