Chemical Plant Explosion Lawyers Represent Injured Workers and their Families throughout the United States

Unfortunately, chemical plant explosions are a risk in every industry that creates or uses chemicals. These accidents often create large-scale injuries or deaths that affect many workers and their families. The news is filled with current examples of injuries and deaths caused by these events such as the one in Port Neches, Texas in 2019. There are many reasons chemical plant explosions occur, and there are many different types of injuries that they cause. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a chemical plant explosion, you need a lawyer that specializes in this type of personal injury law in order to maximize damages the courts will award you in a civil suit.

What Causes Chemical Plant Explosions?

The cause of a chemical plant explosion is usually preventable. It occurs because workers don’t properly store chemicals, aren’t properly trained, or they did not comply with regulations meant to keep chemical workplaces safe. Welders are sometimes killed because they don’t know that the contents of the tank they are welding are flammable. Rarely could a chemical plant explosion be called anything but an accident, but it often involves the negligence or misconduct of one or more parties. That is what creates the possibility for a civil suit.

What Are the Common Injuries of Chemical Plant Explosions?

As stated previously, there are many possibilities of injuries in chemical plant explosions, but some are more common than others.

  • Burns
  • Hearing Loss
  • Head Trauma
  • Loss of Limb(s)
  • Lung Damage
  • Broken Bones
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Eye Injuries
  • Asphyxiation
  • Death

The extent of these injuries will vary based on the specifics of the explosion, but many of them cause permanent or long-lasting impairment. This is why a chemical plant explosion lawyer can be essential to maintaining your livelihood for yourself and your family.

What to Do if You Are Injured in a Chemical Plant Explosion

In any injurious accident, the first thing you need to do is take care of yourself. Get medical attention as soon as possible, and make sure that you are doing everything within your power to limit your injuries and heal.

If your injuries from the chemical plant explosion are severe, it could have an immediate negative financial impact, as you won’t be able to return to work for some time. That is why it is important to hire a chemical plant explosion lawyer as soon as possible. The quicker you receive compensation for your injuries, the better your financial future will be.

If your loved one has died, you may be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death suit. There are many types of compensation for victims of chemical plant explosions and their families, and an expert in this field will be able to ensure that you recoup as much for your damages as possible.

I worked with Nick Morrow, John Sheppard, Daniel Sheppard, Patrick McGinnis, and Chris West on my maritime injury case. These guys were incredible. I... was injured badly working on a tugboat, and was forced to leave my career. These lawyers assured me I had a right to recover damages under the Jones Act, even when several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard went above and beyond. They took on costs like hiring expensive experts and taking depositions so that I could be in the best position to prove my case. I watched them handle every excuse the defense lawyers threw at me, and ultimately forced the defendant’s hand in to paying me what I deserved. Morrow & Sheppard always kept me informed and up to date on my case, and developed a personal relationship with me. I would give them the highest recommendation. I still keep in touch with them, and look forward to seeing them whenever I pass through Houston.read more

Nick Morrow and John Sheppard are the best. I was paralyzed in a work injury. Several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard hired... expensive experts, took dozens of depositions, and proved my case. I saw them in court against a team of defense lawyers, and the defense lawyers didn’t stand a chance. Morrow & Sheppard took my case all the way when nobody else would. Now my family is set up for life. Throughout the process, they kept me updated and made me feel like I was more than a number. I still talk to Nick to this day. Morrow & Sheppard exceeded my expectations in every way, and I cannot recommend them enough. If you are injured at work, call Morrow & Sheppard.read more

My experience with John, at Morrow and Sheppard, during my company’s litigation was better than I could have imagined (considering the circumstances... of being involved in litigation). What stood out to me the most, was John’s tenacity in preparation. I later realized this came from two places, one he didn’t want to lose and two (and most importantly) he CARED so much about me getting justice. I cannot stress this enough, when you are dealing with a lawyer that truly cares, then all of the other stresses I had around the case seemed to go away. I was always kept up to date with what was going on in our case, and he always made it very clear he was just an email or call away! In addition to these attributes, he also knows the law and is willing to fight for what is right! It would be tough to find another lawyer that is as highly effective, skilled, knowledgeable, ethical and has such an impeccable reputation (which is well deserved). I would recommend Morrow and Sheppard to anyone seeking out a law firm, in the event they needed counsel.read more
