An explosion at work is terrifying experience for many reasons. First, explosions are unpredictable. They can happen in a split second with no warning. Second, large groups of people can be affected, especially when the explosion happens in a busy workplace. Third, the injuries from explosions tend to be catastrophic. Burns, amputation, scarring and disfigurement, or even death can result.

After a workplace explosion, victims may be eligible for substantial compensation.

At Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, we represent people who have been injured in workplace explosions. We also represent family members who have lost a loved one in a fatal workplace explosion. As Texas’ oldest personal injury law firm, we have 70 years of experience to put to use for you.

When Explosions Occur At Work

There are numerous chemical plants, oil and gas refineries, industrial plants, and power plants in Houston and the surrounding areas, as well as oil rigs and drilling sites. An explosion can occur at any of these worksites.

Hundreds of thousands of Texans work in the oil and gas industry.

Certain industries and jobs may be more at risk for explosions than others. For example, when flammable or combustible chemicals are in the air, a small spark can set off a dangerous explosion.

But it is important to note that an explosion can occur in any workplace. Devastating accidents can happen even in office buildings, warehouses, factories, and other workplaces.

How We Can Help

Determining the cause of the explosion is the first step in determining an individual’s legal options. Regardless of cause, an injured worker can seek workers’ compensation benefits. However, there may be cases in which an injured worker can seek additional compensation if negligence by a third party caused or contributed to the explosion.

Our attorneys can help you explore all sources of compensation after an explosion at work, to help you move forward with financial security.
