Texas is home to several petrochemical plants and refineries. Houston alone accounts for over 42% of the nation’s base petrochemical capacity. Many of these facilities sometimes fail to provide proper safety protocols, appropriate oversight and training, appropriate protective equipment, and proper maintenance. Failing in one or more of these factors can lead to explosions, injuries, and exposure to toxic chemicals. Unfortunately, in these situations, employers are looking out for their best interest to shield themselves from legal exposure. That is why it is critical to hire an experienced refinery accident attorney in Houston who specializes in protecting your rights and yielding the highest possible recovery for you and your family.
Do I Need an Oil Refinery Accident Lawyer?
Having the representation of a personal injury attorney experienced in handling oil refinery and plant accident claims is critical in order to receive the highest possible recovery that is available to you without any undue delay. Many people injured as the result of the negligence of a third party might be reluctant to hire a lawyer. This is because people do not want to have to spend money unnecessarily if they feel that a personal injury claim might be something that they could handle themselves. In Texas, the standard method of payment for a personal injury attorney is through what is called a contingency fee. This means that a personal injury lawyer won’t ever send you a bill, invoice, or receipt. A refinery accident attorney on our team would get paid by taking a percentage of whatever the recovery is. That is the case if the recovery is through a settlement or through a jury trial. If, for whatever reason, there is no recovery, then you would not have to pay the lawyer anything.
