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.
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.
