United States and Texas Plant Explosions

As Texas and the United States have become more industrialized Plant Explosions and other industrial accidents have become more and more common.  This has become especially true with aging infrastructure of many industrial plants and the corporation controlled OSHA safety agency that has weakened safety regulations and protections for workers.  These factors combined with many corporations deciding to save money at the expense of worker safety have lead to many devastating plant explosions and industrial accidents.

Below are some Texas Plant Explosions and United States Plant Explosions that have made news because of the devastation that they have caused.

Plant Explosions and Combustible Dust

Combustible Dust is problem that has been know for years.  For those familiar with the grain industry, it is commonly understood that grain dust is more flammable than grain.  It is hard to burn grain, but if you have a large pile of grain dust the small particles become more flammable.  For this reason there are several regulations on the grain industry to prevent fires and explosions.  Likewise other materials like metal are typically not flammable, but when in dust form they become flammable and in large quantities can cause a plant explosion.

Industrial Accident Claims and Mass Tort Claims

Industrial accidents and other mass tort claims including chemical plant explosions, chemical releases, large warehouse fires, and pipeline explosions cause mass destruction including death, personal injuries, and significant damage.  Because of our global economy, these industrial accidents can take place any place in the United States or in the World, but be caused by greedy corporations and negligent people in Texas or other parts of the United States.  In many instances following a large industrial accident the families of the victims have a difficult time locating a Texas Industrial Accident Lawyer or United States Industrial Accident Lawyer to handle accidental death claims, personal injury claims, or property damage claims against Texas corporations or United States corporations that made negligent safety decisions.  Working with other Texas Industrial Accident Lawyers and United States Industrial Accident Lawyers, Jason Coomer is able to assist people that have suffered the loss of family members, serious personal injuries, and significant property damage from large industrial accidents. 

Under Texas law those that make money and control heavy industries have a duty to be aware of potential dangers.  They also have a duty to actively work to minimize dangers that they are aware of that could kill, poison, burn, or injure people or cause significant damage to property.  Further, careless people or businesses that have made decisions to save money and these decisions have resulted in a catastrophic industrial accident should be held responsible for there actions.  Families, businesses, and communities that have suffered significant damages from large explosions, chemical spills, fires, train derailment, flooding, or other large industrial accident need to be compensated.  In some circumstances injured people, the family of a lost loved one, or a businesses can recover damages under Texas law.
