Industrial Injury Attorneys in Houston
Industrial Injuries in Texas and Louisiana
As recent news stories have demonstrated, working at a refinery or other industrial facility can be dangerous. We have helped hundreds of individuals and families whose lives were impacted by an industrial injury. These injuries have been caused by the plant owner’s unsafe operations, by the negligence of contractors, or by defective machinery or equipment at the plant. Our Houston industrial injury attorneys have successfully represented industrial workers throughout the state, and our results in this area speak for themselves.
Industrial jobs pose a higher risk of serious injury or death than other jobs. People who work in and around the following facilities face significant danger on the job every day:
- Construction sites
- Drilling rigs
- Fabrication plants
- Assembly plants
- Packaging and distribution plants
However, just because a particular occupation is more dangerous than others does not mean that industrial companies can avoid their legal duty to provide a safe work environment for those people working in or around their facilities. This duty includes providing adequate and appropriate equipment, training, and work site facilities.
COMMON INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENTS:
While there is a broad range of accidents that can happen in industrial settings, there are a few common categories that we often see at our firm:
- Fires and explosions
- Chemical exposure and burns
- Heavy machinery and automated machinery accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
We see our mission as helping victims of industrial injury and their families every step of the way, including assisting them with their workers compensation and disability claims, as well as aggressively pursuing litigation against the responsible industrial defendants.
As well as prosecuting our industrial injury cases aggressively, our Houston Industrial Injury Attorneys also thoroughly investigate and work up our clients’ cases for trial. So, by the time we’re sitting across the negotiating table from an industrial defendant and its lawyers, we are fully prepared to secure a good settlement possible for our clients, and if necessary, go fight the case out before a jury, judge, or arbitration panel.

Our track record on securing extraordinary results for our industrial worker clients, both at the negotiating table and at trial, along with the testimonies that we have received from our former industrial worker clients and their families, speaks for themselves.
