Houston Personal Injury Lawyer
Wrongfully injured? Work with the best!
When you are looking to file a personal injury claim, you need to know that you have the best working on your side. This is exactly what you will receive should you choose to work with the personal injury attorneys at Arnold & Itkin. Over the years, we have been successful in recovering hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of our clients; in the last three years alone, we were able to secure over $500 million in verdicts and settlements. This is a testimony to our ability to help our clients in some of the most complex personal injury litigation.
Experienced Texas Plant Explosion Attorneys
At Arnold & Itkin, we know that there is almost nothing more catastrophic than the aftermath of a plant or refinery accident, such as
fertilizer plant explosions. Throughout the years, thousands of people have suffered severe personal injuries, as well as the loss of loved ones, in both
plant explosions and
fires. What makes matters even worse is that many of these tragic industrial injuries could have been avoided with just a few extra steps. For example, a common cause of plant explosions is the use of
aging, outdated equipment. For whatever reason, many companies simply refuse to upgrade their plants or build new ones entirely—this small refusal may save them money in the short-run, but can cost employees their health, safety, and lives in the long-run. Our firm stands against companies that put profit above the safety of their employees.
In 2005, we helped represent individuals who were injured in the BP Texas City explosion—a catastrophic plant accident that killed 15 individuals and injured more than 170 others. Through our hands-on work in cases such as this, as well as our years of experience, we have seen first-hand the trauma that company's negligent and careless actions can cause. Above all, we are dedicated to our clients' success. Regardless of whether we are going to an on-site inspection alongside other professionals to collect evidence, gathering testimony, or talking with teams of experts, we will work tirelessly to figure out the cause of the explosion. We know that what the plant or OSHA says happened is not always the complete truth; it is our responsibility to make sure that the full story comes to light. If you were injured in a plant explosion, we encourage you to talk to a member of our legal team. You can also watch our
plant explosion videos to listen as we discuss these types of cases, our involvement, and more about our firm.

Protecting Victims of Truck Accidents
One major focus of our firm is in helping clients who have been wrongfully injured in truck accidents throughout the Houston, Texas area. Large commercial trucks can be the cause of catastrophic and even life-threatening accidents – largely due to the massive size of the vehicle, as well as the speed at which they travel. According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), there were fewer than 300 fatal accidents in 2011 with a truck-tractor/semi-trailer. There are many causes of such accidents – including faulty equipments on the trucks, tired drivers behind the wheels and even inclement weather. Regardless, however, of the cause of your accident, it is vastly important that you do not hesitate to contact a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible. At our firm, we are well-versed in complex truck accident cases and will be able to step up and help you fight for just financial compensation.

This includes making sure our clients receive the best medical care possible while their case is pending. Our mission is to make our clients' world a better place for them. It, however, is important to keep in mind that your right to recover funds through an insurance claim may be lost if you wait too long to pursue legal action. The statutes of limitations vary from state to state, and they may be as short as one year from the date of injury.
That's why it's important to contact a member of our team as soon as possible. Our firm is passionate about helping our clients and we dedicate ourselves to achieving success in the courtroom. We prepare every case to go to trial because we believe that our clients will recover maximum compensation only when those responsible are standing on the steps of the courthouse.
