Why hire a Houston Explosion Accident Lawyer?

In order to file a successful claim against a company that experienced an explosion, you must prove that the company breached their duty of care which requires them to have a process in place to keep up proper maintenance and safety precautions for any hazardous materials that may lead to an explosion.  You must also prove that the company breached that duty as a result of negligence or failure to act on a known danger.  Finally, you must show that your injuries or property loss was a direct result of that breach of duty.  This may seem like a simple task but companies retain large insurance companies whose main job is to minimize exposure and find ways to divert blame and fault.  Retaining an experienced explosions accident attorney like Attorney Javier Marcos will ensure that you have proper representation to work through all the complex legal issues and build a strong case for you.

What to do in the event you are injured or suffered loss from an explosion accident

Attorney Javier Marcos will talk to any insurance adjuster or company representative on your behalf.  Many times, an insurance adjuster may try and get a statement from you or offer you a quick settlement amount to absolve the company from further liability.  It’s best to let an experienced attorney correspond with these people and let you know what your options are.

If you have been injured, seek medical attention.  Even if you do not think you are injured badly, its important that you are assessed by a medical professional.  When it comes to explosions, especially those that involve chemical agents, the damages may not present themselves initially.

Try to take photos of the incident if possible.  Get names of witnesses and write notes about the situation and what you see.

Not all personal injury lawyers are the same.  When it comes to fighting insurance companies and chemical companies, an attorney needs resources and experience to keep the case going.  Especially in cases with severe injuries or death.  Most cases maybe settled out of court but some may need to go to trial.  You need an attorney with the knowledge, resources and resolve to get you the most compensation possible.
