Chemical Plant Operators: Suffering from a Burn Injury? Williams Hart & Boundas Can Help.

While chemical burns trigger fewer than 10 percent of burn-related injuries, they’re usually much worse than thermal or electrical burns because they can cause both external and internal injuries. Dangerous chemicals can seep through the skin, destroy nerves, and sear internal organs.

Medical bills quickly pile up when the victim is out of work, and there is no money to pay them. Meanwhile, the insurance company bombards the victim with financial settlement offers which might or might not be fair.

Choosing the Best Houston Lawyer for a Chemical Plant Burn Accident

Choosing the Best Houston Lawyer for a Chemical Plant Burn Accident

Texas, particularly its Southeast region, is one of the busiest energy production areas in the country. The Lone Star State has vast petroleum reserves, and the Houston Ship Channel is one of the busiest ports in the country. These companies care a great deal about their bottom lines, but almost nothing about worker safety. To many chemical companies, workers are essentially cogs in a machine and worker safety is an unnecessary cost.

At Williams Hart & Boundas, we care about our bottom line: taking care of our clients. We became attorneys to help people and stand up for their legal rights, not to make money. And we care a great deal about our clients. They are our partners as opposed to our customers. These two attitudes help us achieve results which often exceed our clients’ expectations.

Why You Should Hire a Lawyer after a Chemical Plant Refinery Accident

Texas is a state renowned for its oil and gas industry, and chemical plant refineries are an instrumental link in the chain to getting this lucrative product to market. Houston is a world leader in chemical plant refineries and employs an estimated 100,000 people in the industry. Houston alone accounts for over 40 percent of America’s base petrochemical capacity.

If you or your family member work in a chemical plant, then you will likely know that there are inherent risks involved with being employed in this field. However, it is still the responsibility of the chemical plant refinery, as the employer, to ensure that rigorous safety protocols are in place and that all employees are repeatedly trained to avoid or mitigate any accidents. Outdated protocols, machinery, and unsafe conditions can all result in chemical plant refinery accidents.
