You Deserve Fair Compensation…
Regardless of Your Citizenship or Documentation

Chemical plant explosions are devastating events that occur when hazardous substances combust, often due to factors such as equipment malfunction, human error, or inadequate safety measures. These explosions unleash massive amounts of energy, resulting in widespread damage to property, severe injuries, and even loss of life.

However, if you have suffered because of chemical plant explosions, you have the same right to secure compensation as anyone else. Our legal team is dedicated to protecting the rights of all victims affected by chemical plant explosions in Texas.

Beware of Insurance Companies After Chemical Plant Explosions…
Even When They Sound Caring or Friendly

After a chemical plant explosion, you can expect a call from an insurance adjuster representing the responsible party’s insurer. While they may sound empathetic and helpful, remember that their primary goal is to protect the interests of the insurance company, not yours. They may ask you for recorded statements, medical records, or signed documents, claiming it’s standard procedure. However, be cautious, as these statements can be used against you, and signing documents without fully understanding them could harm your case.

Insurance companies may downplay the extent of your injuries or property damage, offering quick settlements that may not fully compensate you for your losses. They may also try to shift blame onto you or other parties to minimize their liability. Don’t fall for their tactics. Seek guidance from a legal advisor like Paxton Law Firm, who can protect your rights, negotiate on your behalf, and ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries and damages.

Steps to Take Immediately After Chemical Plant Explosions:

  • Move to a safe location away from the explosion site and follow any emergency evacuation procedures.
  • Immediately seek medical assistance for any injuries, even if they seem minor.
  • Take photos or videos of the explosion site, including any visible damage, injuries, or hazardous conditions.
  • Avoid tampering with any evidence and gather information such as witness statements and contact details.
  • Notify relevant authorities, such as emergency services and local law enforcement.
  • Seek legal representation from a reputable law firm like Paxton Law Firm to protect your rights and explore your options for compensation.
  • Refrain from providing statements to insurance adjusters or signing any documents without consulting with your lawyer first.
  • Attend all medical appointments and follow your healthcare provider’s recommendations for treatment and rehabilitation.
  • Maintain detailed records of medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and any other relevant information related to the explosion.

Common Reasons for Chemical Plant Explosions:

  • Failure or malfunction of machinery, valves, or other critical components
  • Mistakes in operation, maintenance, or handling of hazardous materials
  • Inadequate safety measures, training, or supervision
  • Uncontrolled reactions between substances or improper handling of reactive materials
  • Sparks, flames, or heat sources that ignite flammable materials or gases
  • Neglecting regular inspections, repairs, or maintenance of equipment and infrastructure
  • Severe weather conditions, natural disasters, or external events
