Industrial Accidents, Chemical Releases, and Plant Explosions by Texas Industrial Accident Lawyer and Texas Chemical Release Lawyer Jason S. Coomer

Plant explosions and chemical releases as well as other industrial accidents can cause catastrophic damages, severe injuries and even multiple deaths.  Not only are individuals working in heavy industry vulnerable to damages, but those that live close to heavy industry can be at risk.  Despite the benefits of heavy industry, careless people or businesses trying to save money in dangerous heavy industry have caused catastrophic industrial accidents.  Families and businesses effected by large explosions, chemical spills, fires, and other large industrial accidents can often recover compensation from the people that cause the industrial accident.  Below are some large industrial accidents that have caused substantial damage.  Be careful and protect yourself and those that you love.
