Plant & Refinery Explosions

Texas City Refinery Explosion Attorney

Justice for Injury or Death From Oil Refinery Explosions

A fire or explosion at a chemical plant or oil refinery takes lives or ruins them. Many people who survive the initial blast perish or suffer great harm from falling injuries, burns or breathing toxic smoke and fumes.

If a family member died or has suffered lasting injury from a catastrophic explosion at a refinery, the Tylka Law Firm will respond immediately to represent your legal interests. We have handled industrial explosion lawsuits on behalf of workers and their surviving family members for more than 25 years. We have also represented nearby residents for adverse health effects or property damage from a blast or toxic chemical exposure.

We handle cases in Galveston County and Harris County, statewide in Texas and throughout the United States. You can reach us 24 hours a day on our emergency line (713-829-6048).

Plant and Refinery Explosions

Attorney Lawrence M. Tylka has sued major oil companies and chemical manufacturers for plant and refinery explosions. In fact, he often gets referrals from other attorneys for his experience and results in these types of cases.

He is very familiar with the acute and long-term injuries associated with explosions and fires at industrial facilities:

  • Burn injuries (heat or chemical burns)
  • Shrapnel injuries and broken bones
  • Hearing loss and eye injuries
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Lost limbs
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Fatality (wrongful death)
  • Brain damage
  • Permanent lung ailments
  • Nerve damage and organ damage
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

In addition to documenting the medical and financial needs of our clients, we excel at establishing liability in these complex cases: defective or poorly maintained machinery, inadequate storage or handling of volatile materials, disregard for safety protocols and other negligence that put employees and the public in danger. Our firm hires experts in accident reconstruction, engineering, industrial safety and other fields to demonstrate how the plant owners, manufacturers or third-party contractors were negligent.
