Texas Environmental Hazard and Toxic Tort Lawyers

Experienced Injury Attorneys Handling Environmental Hazard and Toxic Tort Claims Across the Nation.

Refineries, factories, and processing plants use and can produce dangerous chemicals, waste, pollutants, and byproducts. Unfortunately, when a business is negligent in their control of dangerous chemicals, pollutants, and waste products, it can create dangers for surrounding communities.

If you have suffered injury or illness due to pollutants or another environmental hazard, contact the toxic tort attorneys at Thomas J. Henry Law immediately.


Environmental Hazards and Toxic Tort in Texas

Refining and industrial processing are major industries throughout Texas, particularly oil and petroleum refining. These industries are not only essential to the financial stability of our state, they also allow Americans across the nation the products they necessary for our current way of life.

While the majority of refineries and processing plants work diligently to ensure they are withing EPA and state guidelines for safe pollution and waste management, a single act of negligence can put countless lives at risk.

Recently, a benzene leak at the Intercontinental Terminals Co. facility in Harris County resulted in shelter-in-place orders being issued for Deer Park and Galena Park residents. The lead followed a fire at the facility with the resulting plume being visible from miles away.

However, environmental hazards may not be restricted to facilities and refineries. An incident in Lakeland, Florida prompted a stay indoors order after a train derailed resulting in a hazardous chemical spill.

Your Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions
to help you make critical decisions, navigate
legal process and help you get justice.

Following an accident, there are always more questions
than answers. At Thomas J. Henry, we’re here to answer
any questions you have about your injury case.

Environmental hazards lawsuits cover a ride-range of litigation. Typically, though, the goal is to hold polluters and manufacturers of toxic materials accountable for their actions and help the victims of their negligence recover damages for their illnesses and/or injuries. Due to the serious nature of environmental hazard lawsuits, litigation may also result in the negligent party paying punitive damages. Punitive damages are exemplary damage assessed to punish the defendant when their behavior or negligence is considered especially egregious or outrageous. In a toxic tort lawsuit, the hope is that punitive damages will serve as an example to other polluters that their behavior will not be tolerated.
In toxic tort matters, it is always highly recommended that you speak with an attorney before making any decision or action that could compromise your recovery. Proving causation is difficult in toxic tort claims, and you will likely be facing a large company or corporation who is prepared to argue against your claim. Do not risk your health or your recovery, call Thomas J. Henry immediately.
Depending on your situation, you may be able to take legal action against the parties responsible for your injuries or illness. This includes:
  • An individual or organization at fault for an environmental hazard
  • An insurance company that refuses to offer fair compensation for damages related to an environmental hazard
  • An individual or organization that fails to properly regulate and/or dispose of the output of pollution, toxic waste, or other hazards
Damages may also be collected as:
  • Remedies for liability under State and Federal laws
  • Damages for liability under State and Federal laws
