Refinery & Petrochemical Plant Accidents

Friendswood and Galveston Petrochemical Plant Injury Attorneys

An Experienced Lawyer Representing Workers Injured in Oil Refinery and Petrochemical Plant Accidents

Texas is known world-wide as a top producer of oil and oil-based products. Galveston County and the surrounding area house some of the nation's largest refineries and petrochemical plants, providing jobs for countless workers to earn an honest living.

Unfortunately, the oil business is risky. Refinery accidents are common, leading to serious and sometimes fatal injuries. Yet the work must go on and people, who are willing to jeopardize their well-being, continue to clock in each day with the hope that today will not be their turn to face tragedy.

At the APFFEL LAW OFFICE in League City, we are experienced in representing workers injured in refinery accidents as well as those who have lost a loved one in a case of wrongful death. Having helped numerous people affected by the BP explosion in 2005, our founding attorney E. A. "Trey" Apffel III understands the devastation injuries from a refinery accident can have on not only a victim, but the victim's family as well.
