Houston Plant Explosion Injury Lawyers

Were you injured in a Houston Plant Explosion? Get Help When You Need it Most.

Houston is often referred to as the “Energy Capital of the World.” According to Business in Texas, the State leads the nation in petroleum refining and chemical production with the City of Houston accounting for “over 40 percent of the nation’s base petrochemical capacity.” 

This means that Houston is home to an inordinately large number of chemical plants. Chemical plants can be dangerous to both workers and nearby residents. If you are injured in a Houston plant explosion, you need to consult with an attorney immediately.

Blasts from a chemical plant can do irreparable harm to you and your family. If you suffered an injury as a result of an explosion at a nearby plant, you might be entitled to compensation. 

With over 100 years of combined experience, we can help you get the compensation you need and the justice you deserve. Let us be your champion.
