Plant, Refinery & Pipeline Explosions

Plant Explosion Lawyer & Refinery Explosion Lawyer

Undefeated Plant and Refinery Explosion Lawyers with Over $1 Billion Won

In addition to being undefeated, our Plant Explosion Lawyers have successfully represented over 1,000 plant, pipeline and refinery workers across the country, won over $1 Billion in connection with the largest industrial accidents and explosions in recent history, and repeatedly recovered record-setting verdicts and settlements against the largest plant, refinery and pipeline operators in the world.

We’ve Successfully Represented Over 1,000 Workers in Connection with Every Major Workplace Explosion in Recent History

We’re also one of the only law firms in the country to have successfully represented workers in connection with every catastrophic workplace explosion in recent history.

Most recently, for example, we obtained a $100 Million settlement on behalf of a group of workers injured in a refinery explosion after overcoming the plant owner’s attempts to limit our clients to less than $50,000 in workers’ compensation benefits.

Our Plant Explosion Lawyers have also:

  • reached record-setting settlements for over 100 workers injured during the BP Texas City explosion
  • obtained highly favorable (and confidential) settlements for over 60 workers injured during the Williams Geismar explosion
  • recovered record-setting settlements on behalf of 5 of the workers who were severely injured onboard the BP Deepwater Horizon
  • obtained highly favorable (and confidential) settlements for over 100 workers injured during the Imperial Sugar refinery explosion
  • repeatedly recovered the largest verdicts and settlements in our opponent’s corporate histories

Our Explosion Lawyers are Undefeated

We devote whatever time and resources are necessary to ensuring that our clients and their families recover the maximum compensation available.  We do that by refusing to accept inadequate settlement offers and preparing our case for trial — where all of our attorneys remain undefeated.

In every single case that our firm has been involved with, our attorneys have won the largest verdicts or settlements in the shortest amount of time possible.

For example, while it took many law firms over 5 years to resolve their cases against BP and Transocean following the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion, our Explosion Lawyers were able to negotiate a highly favorable (and confidential) settlement less than 18 months after the explosion on behalf of 5 workers injured onboard the rig.

But our experience isn’t limited to fighting BP.

Our Plant & Refinery Explosion Lawyers have also successfully represented workers injured during the:

  • Williams Geismar Explosion
  • Imperial Sugar Refinery Explosion;
  • International Paper Explosion; and
  • ConocoPhillips Explosion.

Our repeated success both in and out of the courtroom confirms that our Plant and Refinery Explosion Lawyers have the skills, resources and experience to take on and defeat the largest companies in the World so that our clients and their family members receive the maximum compensation possible.

We Do More than Just Win – We Set Records

In the past 5 years alone, our Plant Explosion Lawyers have won:

  • the largest industrial accident verdicts and settlements in the United States
  • 2 of the largest accident verdicts in Texas
  • 3 of the largest settlements in Texas
  • over $1 Billion for our clients, and
  • the largest verdicts and settlements in our opponents’ histories

In addition to ensuring that our clients are fully compensated for their injuries and damages, our Trial Lawyers and staff make sure that:

  • you’re able to see the best doctors and specialists available
  • you have the financial resources to pay your medical bills and necessary living expenses while your case is pending; and
  • you have access to the best financial professionals and advisors to ensure that you are able to cover your cost of living and medical expenses after your case is resolved either through settlement or at trial.

Our Explosion Lawyers regularly handle cases across Texas, Louisiana and across the United States on behalf of workers who were injured at

  • Petrochemical plants
  • Pipelines
  • Offshore and onshore oil rigs and platforms
  • Oil refineries
  • Paper mills
  • Chemical Plants

Having successfully represented over 1,000 workers injured during some of the most catastrophic workplace explosions and accidents in history, we’ve learned and demonstrated that every single explosion is preventable.

We’ve also assembled a team of leading “cause and origin” experts and engineers to determine why the explosions happened and how they could have been prevented.

Whether an employer failed to follow standard operating procedures or recklessly ignored or violated safety policies to increase profits, our Explosion Lawyers will devote whatever resources are necessary to ensuring that our clients and their families receive the maximum recovery possible.

I hired Zehl when I was severely injured doing a Plug and Abandonment job offshore. I'm glad I did, they were incredible. They walked me through every step of the case, made sure that I got to the best doctors, and were always there for me when I was having trouble paying bills when the case was pending. I always felt that I was in good hands and well taken care of, which relieved a lot of my stress and helped put me at ease. Eric and the team at Zehl and Associates represented my best interests, I highly recommend them.

I was hesitant to file a lawsuit when I was injured at work, because I didn't know what to expect and my company kept telling me that "they were going to take care of me." But the medical bills kept piling up, I wasn't able to work and make money to support my family. Eric Allen and the staff at Zehl put me at ease about the process, kept me to up date about what was going on, and devoted all their resources to making sure that I had the money I needed to pay all my medical expenses and take care of myself and my family. I can honestly say that working with Eric, Ryan and the Zehl team was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Thank you.

After I was injured at a chemical plant, I needed time to recover from my injuries and a lawyer who could stand up for me and my family against my company. Ryan Zehl was recommended to me from a coworker. Ryan worked hard to prepare my case and kept me and my family in the loop through the entire process. At the end they were able to get me a settlement that was much more than we had expected. I’d recommend Ryan and the team at Zehl to anyone who needs an injury lawyer who’s aggressive, honest and dedicated to protecting their clients.

Thanks to the hard work from Ryan and his team, a dangerous product that could have hurt thousands of people is now off the street. Even though I suffered from the lack of safety checks from this product, I am happy to have “taken the bullet”, to keep other people safe. Special thanks to Tommy Servos, who kept me informed through out the whole trial and helped me get a record recovery!

I grew up in Texas and went to work on an oil rig just like my dad did. It was a point of pride to follow in the same career path as my father, but no one warned me about the constant pending danger of being on the rig. My team and I are professionals that follow the rules and keep safety as priority number 1. But there are some factors to this job that can’t be controlled. Just like the BP Deep Water Horizon oil spill, my rig suffered an explosion due to the lack of up keep and maintenance from our superiors. Ryan Zehl came to our aid to get the compensation my crew and I needed. Having a Houston personal injury attorney from back home represent us was truly a personal and eye opening experience. He truly cared about us and thanks to him, I can recover with my family and the safety precautions on the rig have never been tighter.

Husband was killed at a refinery to the lack of safety checks performed by the company he worked for. When I found out he was gone I was so devastated and scared for our family I wasn’t sure what the next step would be. At first I thought his company would do the right thing and take care of us. But was I wrong. They tried to say we could only recover worker’s comp and had no claim against the company. I hired Ryan because of their experience with plant and refinery accident cases. I was so impressed at how professional and caring Ryan and his entire team were. They would call to check on me and my kids and always made sure I had money to pay bills and get presents for my kids on there birthdays and at Christmas. I don’t know where we’d be without there help. Because of Ryan and his team, I was able to pay off the house, put a trust together for my kids to make sure they’re able to pay for college, and never have to worry about having enough money to take care of myself and the kids again. We are so grateful for everything they did for us. Thank you.

I came to Zehl Law Firm after I was injured in a car accident. They made me feel comfortable and explained things so I understood what to expect. Along with excellent communication. They were always quick to respond and update me on everything. Kelvin Hayes did a great job with my case and I would be happy to refer him to anyone looking for a auto injury lawyer.

I highly recommend Zehl Law! When I was injured on the job, I reached out to Ryan’s office and was greeted with support. I was well taken and care of and really appreciate how the law firm professionals went above and beyond their call of duty to help me. Now I can recover without having to worry about money until I am well enough to get back on the job. Thanks guys!
