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 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.

Some of our Record-Setting Results:

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

Our Commitment to Our Clients is Confirmed by Our Results

While every case is different, our goal is always the same: holding reckless and negligent companies accountable and ensuring that the workers they injure or tragically kill receive the maximum compensation possible.

We achieve this goal by hiring the brightest and best lawyers and staff, working harder and being more prepared than our opponents, and devoting whatever time and resources are necessary to maximizing the value of each and every case.

This approach has not only resulted in the largest verdicts and settlements in history, but, more importantly, enabled our clients care and provide for themselves and their families for the rest of their lives.

As Our Clients Often Say, “We’re More than Just Lawyers, We’re Like Family”

We Recover Record-Setting Settlements and Verdicts as Quickly as Possible so that Our Clients and their Families Can Move On with Their Lives

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 hundreds of workers injured during many of the largest explosions in history, including:

  • Williams Geismar Explosion
  • Williams Gibson 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 have the financial resources to care for themselves and their families for the rest of their lives.

Plant and Refinery Explosions are Preventable

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 mechanical and process safety engineers to show why the explosion occurred and what could (and should) have been done to prevent it.

Whether the owner or operator failed to follow federal or corporate safety rules and procedures to cut costs and increase profits or violated standard operating procedures, our Explosion Lawyers will devote whatever resources are necessary to ensuring that our clients and their families receive the maximum recovery possible.

I wanted to express my outmost gratitude and appreciation to the Zehl&Associates law firm for the excellent representation in my accident case in December 2016; even though it was a difficult case I could not have been more pleased with how they handled everything. They are very knowledgeable and clearly the top in their field. I would highly recommend them. Thanks Zehl&Associates.

I don’t think I can ever be thankful enough for Lamar DeLong. I’m a single mom, on my way home from work two weeks after I started my new job and two weeks after graduating from college, I was in a horrible car accident. My car was totaled and I was really badly hurt. Lamar took my case and didn’t stop until I was going to be fully taken care of. I now will have little worries about taking the time off of work to get the back and knee surgery I desperately need to be able to function normally. I’m 26, I’m a single parent and Lamar kept that in mind. Zehl&Associates really took care of me. Especially being in completely different cities. A thank you won’t be enough for this firm treating me like family and making sure I was taken care of. Thank you Lamar and all the staff involved in my case.

Ryan Zehl is the best, very nice, helpful, and compassionate. His firm works very hard to help you! I hired them because my brother was killed on a work site, the firm's track record, and they seemed to really care about their clients and cases. Thank you all at Zehl & Associates for your help.

Theres not enough stars to rate the true quality on here! Everything I've heard about lawyers went out the window when Eric took time on Father's day of all days to contact me back and help assist me with a settlement. I was in desperate need of legal advice & guidance and running out of time. Eric was quick, efficient, HONEST, and did more than beyond more to make sure I was legally protected & being treated fairly. I was at my giving up point on everything until that first conversation with Eric. Zehl Law definitely breaks the mold on lawyers. He was more interested in protecting me than trying to take money from me. Which is a rare thing to find in any industry or just people in general, which has definitely been my case involving everything else in my life. But of all people, a lawyer restored my faith in humanity itself. Thank you for that. Thank you for everything! You've been more than amazing!!!

Zehl and Associates took amazing care of me after my accident in January 2018. Lamar was kind, listened to all my fears, and helped me through the process of a lawsuit. I truly appreciate the care the office staff took with me whenever I called. Fantastic firm who were able to settle my case without ever stepping foot in court!

Zehl has been amazing and extremely helpful to our family since my husband was incolved in a plant expolosion in 2015. Everyone from the owner of the firm, Ryan, to each and everyone that has answered the phone has always been more than willing to help in anyway possible. The staff always checked on our family to be sure we had all we needed and showed to really care! I would recommend Zehl and associates to anyone looking for a lawyer to fight a good fight and make sure all clients’ needs are met at the same time!

My husband got injured and we had no idea what to do or where to go. Dealing with personal injury is challenging. Zehl & Associates handled our case from beginning to the end and we could not have been more impressed. Matt, your professionalism is appreciated. Thank you very much for all you have done for us. If anyone is looking for a personal injury attorney, this is the place to go.
