Child injuries put children at risk for living with long-term consequences. The World Health Organization (WHO) describes child injuries as a global public health problem. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that on average, in the United States more than 12,000 children die each year from unintentional injury. Additionally, more than 9.2 million are treated for nonfatal injuries. Childhood injuries that happen because of another person’s negligence are entirely preventable.

One of the most overlooked childhood dangers is defective toys and equipment intended for children. Every year, defective children’s products are recalled after children have already suffered injuries. Recalls are necessary because they prevent further injuries by making parents aware of faulty children’s products.

As a parent, you do your best to make sure your children are safe. Unfortunately, children can be injured at school, daycare or in a hospital facility because of defective equipment or poor supervision. The Carlson Law Firm has more than 40 years of experience representing innocent victims of negligence. We can help you hold at-fault parties accountable for your child’s injuries. Contact a qualified Child Injury Lawyer at The Carlson Law Firm today.

Explosion Injuries

An explosion can lead to an extremely dangerous situation and result in death or severe explosion injuries. Blasts occur when a rapid increase in volume and release of energy is expelled from a source in an extreme manner. Generally, a bad mix of chemicals or toxins leads to these dangerous situations. Chemicals are used to make objects, generate power and perform other vital functions in our lives. Even though chemicals are present in our everyday lives, they are often still extremely dangerous. Carelessness from improper maintenance, defects or poor installation can lead to lasting consequences. A qualified explosion lawyer can help if you or a loved one were injured in an explosion.

What Are The Types of Explosions?

Explosions can occur for any number of reasons. Blasts outside of a war zone typically occur because of toxic emissions. Still, explosions fall into two major categories:

  • Supersonic: These explosions are created by high explosives and are known as detonations. They travel via supersonic shock waves.
  • Subsonic: These explosions are created by low explosives through a slower burning process known as deflagration.

Both types of blasts can be devastating to people in surrounding areas. Sparks or open flames igniting chemical in the air is the most common cause of blasts in the workplace. Explosions occur when you least expect it. It can happen in the home, after a trucking accident or even at work. Fortunately, there are several safety measures that must be followed to minimize blasts and the injuries they cause.

Explosions can happen in a number of places:

Chemical plants
Manufacturing plants
Oil and gas jobs
In the home

House Fire Injuries

A house fire — and the injuries it causes — can devastate a family. And after the fire, survivors and family members often face physical, financial, and emotional hardship that can last a lifetime.

Often, house fires are the result of an electrical issue or malfunction of a product or appliances in your kitchen such as the refrigerator, ice maker, oven or dishwasher. Even small appliances that are left plugged in have caused hundreds of house fires resulting in death, burn and inhalation injuries. If this happens to you, don’t just assume that your insurance company is working on your behalf. The reality is they’ve only got one thing in mind: Their bottom line.

If you were severely injured in a house fire, or a loved one was killed or catastrophically injured by a fire in his or her home, a house fire lawyer can help. Although our firm cannot replace all that was lost, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.

Common Causes of House Fires

Building code violations
Defective fire suppression systems
Defective fire-retardant clothing
Faulty smoke detectors
Flammable liquids
Frayed electrical equipment
Improperly treated upholstery
Portable heaters

Gas and Oil Field Accidents

The increased demand for crude oil and natural gas have created a marked increase in drilling activity in the U.S. oil and gas industry. Particularly, the demand for oil has created an oil boom that has affected the Texas Permian Basin. The Permian Basin oil boom has led to an increase in workplace gas and oilfield accident injuries. Additionally, only 2% of Texans live in the Permian Basin, however, the area accounts for 11% of all traffic accidents in the state. If you or a loved one were injured in an oil field accident, explosion or trucking crash, you must start taking steps to protect your rights. Your employer and its insurance adjusters may attempt to discard relevant evidence and take other measures to limit your ability to hold the company accountable. A qualified oil field accident injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve.

The Carlson Law Firm has been helping victims of workplace injuries for more than 40 years. We can help you navigate the legal hurdles that may exist for injured on the job workers in their recovery process. A qualified legal representative from our team is ready to assist you through the process from start to finish.

If you or a loved one were seriously injured in an oil field accident, don’t wait to contact The Carlson Law Firm. Our team of attorneys will fight for your rights when you have sustained injuries in accidents that were caused by no fault of your own.

Oil Field Accident Dangers

Oil companies profit when worksites operate around the clock. But heavy machinery, truck traffic, and cramped working conditions pose a variety of accident dangers to workers.

Oilfield injuries range from mild to severe. Common injuries include:

Severe burns
Broken bones, backs, and necks from falls
Head injuries from falling equipment
Loss of limbs from explosions of defective equipment
Exposure to toxic chemicals, gasses

Wrongful death claims can occur by:

Faulty electrical equipment
Work rig collapses
Falls from rigs and equipment
Frac tank mishaps
Well blowouts
Explosions and fires
Improperly maintained equipment

Filing a lawsuit against responsible parties can sometimes be the best way to recover your damages from an oil field accident or injury claim. Depending on your situation, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the following parties:

A third-party claim against an oil field maintenance contractor
An oil refinery equipment manufacturer
The oil or gas company
Other parties identified through the investigation

Contact a qualified oil field accident injury lawyer to discuss your claim.
