Unfortunately, industrial accidents are pretty common throughout the Gulf Coast, including here in Houston. In fact, Houston is one of the most dangerous cities for workers according to data from OSHA.
Industrial accidents often cause catastrophic injuries or even death for their victims. Many of these accidents are a result of negligence from the company, such as by cutting corners for safety policies or reducing budgets to the point that it creates safety hazards for workers and the public alike.

Types of Industrial AccidentsOur team works with victims of many different types of industrial accidents, including:
- Oil & Gas Accidents: The oil and gas industry is booming in Houston, often leading to serious accidents like explosions and other workplace accidents. We represent injured oil and gas workers seek compensation after these types of accidents.

Legal Options After an Industrial Accident
After an industrial accident, injured workers have options. The first option is to file a workers’ compensation claim. Injured workers are protected under workers’ compensation laws.
These laws allow injured workers to receive benefits to pay for medical bills and a part of their lost wages until they can return to work. It also pays benefits if the worker suffers a permanent or temporary disability. In some cases, injured workers may file a lawsuit against the responsible party.
If you’re a victim of an industrial accident and you don’t work for the party responsible, like in a pipeline explosion near your home, you can usually file a claim against their business insurance or file a lawsuit against them to seek compensation.
