You might be wondering how will you pay for medical bills or recover lost wages after an injury? How does the legal process work? Where do you even begin? These are the questions that our Personal Injury Attorneys will answer for you. We have experience handling a variety of injury cases, including child injuries, explosion accidents, house fire and burn injuries, oil field accidents, traumatic brain injuries, and more.
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.

Common Situations That Lead to Child 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:

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
Gas and Oil Field Accidents
The increased demand for and price of crude oil and natural gas have created a marked increase in drilling activity in the U.S. oil and gas industry. The high demand for crews and equipment has put additional pressures on the industry to use inexperienced workers and unsafe equipment. This has led to poor practices and unsafe work environments due to an increase in work injuries from blowouts, pipeline explosions, and other well site accidents.
If you or a loved one were injured in an oilfield accident or explosion, it’s critical that you start taking steps to protect your rights before the company and its insurance adjusters discard relevant evidence and take other measures to limit your ability to hold the company accountable.
Were you or a loved one seriously injured in an oil field accident? If so, don’t wait to contact The Carlson Law Firm. Our team of attorneys will fight for the rights of those who have sustained injuries in accidents that were caused by no fault of their own.
Traumatic Brain Injury Accidents
Train crash accidents occur more frequently than many people realize. According to the Federal Railroad Administration, an average of 3,000 train accidents occur each year in the United States. Collisions and derailments are responsible not just for extensive property damage, but also traumatic brain injury, catastrophic injury and loss of life to pedestrians, motorists, railroad employees, and train passengers. If you were injured, a train crash attorney can help.
If you were injured in a train crash or collision, contact our team at The Carlson Law Firm to speak with a Railroad Accident Attorney. We can offer you legal guidance from our nationally recognized train crash attorneys. Our team has decades of combined experience representing injury victims and families throughout Texas and across the United States.
