Houston Industrial Accident Lawyer
The Houston area is home to almost 11,000 manufacturing plants, making products ranging from computer circuitry to petrochemicals. Houston is one of the energy capitals of the world, with more than 5000 energy firms in the area. Houston is home to the $15 billion petrochemical complex at the Houston Ship Channel and boasts more than 400 chemical manufacturing plants employing more than 35,000 employees. In addition to chemical, petroleum and other manufacturing services, Houston is home to the largest shipping port in the United States and the sixth-largest port in the world.
With so many workers working in plants and fields that are inherently dangerous, there are thousands of accidents each year caused by human error, poor plant conditions, inefficient operation and lack of safety gear and precautions. The Merman Law Firm has represented thousands of workers injured by the negligence of others, including plant explosions throughout Texas and Louisiana, crane collapses, tank explosions, and hidden dangers on plant premises. Each case involved serious injury and, often, death. These are dangerous jobs and the penalty for mistakes is extremely high.
