Industrial Accident Attorney in Austin, TX

What are Industrial Accidents

Industrial accidents include explosions, toxic chemical leaks, train derailments, building collapses and equipment failures.  They often occur at a plant or warehouse, but sometimes happen in locations far away, such as tanker truck spills or pipeline explosions.  Recent examples include the toxic gas leak at the BP plant in Texas City south of Houston and the fertilizer plant explosion in West, just outside of Waco.

Serious Injuries

 Industrial accidents often result in fatalities and serious injuries, as well as property damages to homes, businesses, cars and other personal property.   Workers and employees are usually at greater risk of being in harm’s way when these accidents take place, but innocent bystanders and property owners can also be affected, sometimes miles away from the accident.  If you or someone you love have been killed or injured in an industrial accident, you have the right to be fairly compensated for your injuries, and the surviving family members have the right to be fairly compensated for the loss of a loved one.  If your home or other personal property was damaged by an industrial accident you have the right to be compensated for any and all such losses.

Experience Counts

There are multiple parties involved in the production and transportation of goods and products.  Some plants have several corporate owners, and the transport of products by train, truck or pipeline also involves different companies.  An attorney with the financial backing and experience to handle these cases from start to finish is an absolute must to get fully compensated for your loss.  Earl Straight has handled these cases for 26 years, has a proven track record and is available to answer any questions you may have about industrial accident claims.  Call 512-454-1331 for a free consultation.
