Houston is a bustling hub of commerce and commercial activity, which is great for the region and for the many people who benefit from a healthy job market. Because much of this rich business environment is hinged on heavy industry, however, jobs in the Houston area can be dangerous. In fact, Houston sees thousands of workplace injuries and deaths each year.

We know the types of occupations that face the greatest risks, and we know how to handle these cases when helping victims pursue the compensation they need.
Some of Houston’s most dangerous occupations include:
5. Plant Workers – Plant workers may work in different sectors, but their industrial jobs all pose significant risks to workers who use large and heavy machinery, handle hazardous materials, and work with live electricity. Some of the largest catastrophic events in Houston and Texas have resulted from accidents at plants and other facilities.
While these occupations face substantial risks in the workplace, any employee can be injured on the job, especially when employers or other third parties violate safety regulations or fail to ensure the safety of working environments.
