What causes plant explosions in Houston?

Chemical plant and refinery explosions can often be traced back to a greater focus on profits than on safety. If today’s employers ensured their worksite was inherently safe then Texas and Louisiana would not have had more plant explosions between 2017 and 2018 than in the previous 5 years combined. 

Our Houston plant explosions attorneys have won personal injury cases caused by negligent acts, including:

  • Maintenance issues
  • Regulatory violations
  • Process safety management failures
  • Manufacturing defects

What are the different levels of injury associated with a blast explosion?  

There are multiple ways you or your loved one could have been injured in a plant explosion blast. One of our duties to you as a plant explosions lawyers is to determine which injuries are present and how they were sustained. The following are the main blast injury categories. 

Primary blast injury 

These injuries are caused by the blast wave moving through the body. These injuries can be subtle and have a delayed presentation that may not be immediately present, especially without a medical examination.

Secondary blast injury

These injuries are caused by flying debris as a result of an explosion. Common secondary blast injuries include fractures and lacerations. 

Tertiary blast injury 

These injuries are caused when the victim is thrown into the air and then impacts an object or when a structure collapses and causes injury to the person.

Quaternary blast injuries 

This group of injuries includes everything that is not a primary, secondary, or tertiary blast injury. These can be burns, broken bones, amputations, post-traumatic stress, or other injuries not caused by the initial blast.

Medical bills, funeral costs, and lost wages can often be more than insurance companies are willing to provide on their own. Yet all of these injuries can be life-threatening and uncovered after the accident. Regardless of which injuries occur, our team can walk you through the discovery process and fight to get you the compensation you deserve. 

Richard Grimes and his entire staff were a pleasure to work with from the very onset of our case to the final conclusion . When we were faced with a challenging personal injury incident, Richard was able to intervene on our behalf and his professionalism, knowledge and great personality completely changed the trajectory of our case for the better. Richard and his assistant Deborah were extremely attentive to not only every detail but every question we had and kept in constant communication to ensure we understood the process every step along the way. I'm truly grateful to have been referred to Richard Grimes and would highly recommend Grimes & Fertitta.
