Katy Pipeline Explosions Lawyer
Representing Injured Pipeline Workers
Tens of thousands of miles of pipelines run underground throughout the
United States, transporting oil and natural gas. When the owner of a pipeline
fails to maintain its safety, deadly explosions can occur. At the Law
Office of Shane McClelland, our pipeline explosions attorney in Katy represents
clients who have been injured in these types of accidents. We also handle
wrongful death claims for those who have lost a loved one in a pipeline explosion.
We advocate for injured
oil and gas workers and others hurt in pipeline explosions. Call
(713) 242-1302 for a free consultation.
Causes & Consequences of Pipeline Failure
Unfortunately, there is no unified set of standards or regulations for
pipelines in the United States. It is up to energy companies to maintain
the integrity of their pipelines. However, safety is not always a priority
and maintenance is not always performed. When pipelines become corroded
after decades of use and the pipeline system is not properly maintained,
the unthinkable becomes more likely.
Pipeline explosions may result in:
- Burn injuries
- Blunt force trauma
- Toxic exposure
- Wrongful death
The injuries suffered when a pipeline explodes are severe, catastrophic,
and sometimes fatal. Survivors of explosions face months or even years
of medical treatment and rehabilitation. Families lose loved ones, who
may have played an essential role in providing for the family. At the
Law Office of Shane McClelland, we fight for justice and compensation
for our clients.
