LEGAL HELP FOR TAFT, TEXAS RESIDENTS
Taft, Texas has its roots in business, and began when Joseph Green began managing the company Coleman-Fulton Pasture Company in the 1800s. It is named after Charles P. Taft, half- brother of President Howard Taft. Since the mid-1900s the town has enjoyed a gradual growth in its population and school system.
Currently, Taft is home to an estimated 5,707 residents and has its own water park. Jobs in the retail industry, on the ship channel, and in Corpus Christi have helped keep the population stable.
Construction work currently accounts for more than a quarter of Taft’s industry. However, construction workers also face significant dangers.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), construction accidents were responsible for 899 deaths in 2014. This translates to 20 percent of all on the on the job deaths. More alarming is that 60 percent of these deaths were caused by four hazards:
- Struck by object
OSHA estimates that if these four causes of death were eliminated, it would save 545 workers’ lives every year.
Taft is also home to a large commuter population. The average drive time for Taft workers is 20 minutes, just under the 21 minute drive time to Corpus Christi. Additionally, many teenagers and young adults travel in to Corpus Christi during the week to attend Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and Del Mar Collage.
This leaves a large portion of Taft’s population at an increased risk of traffic accidents.

The firm’s Corpus Christi office regularly serves clients living and working in Taft. The office, formerly operating as a Federal Courthouse, was recently renovated to accommodate the growing firm.
