Freeze Death & Injury Attorneys

Helping Texans Recover After the Harm Caused in the 2021 Winter Storm

Texas Winter Storm Death & Injury Lawyers

Fighting for the Compensation You Need. No Matter What.

The winter storm that hit Texas in February 2021 caught the attention of the nation, not only because of the record low temperatures, but also due to the major infrastructure failures that left millions without heat, power, or water. Pipes burst, roads were impassable, and the few supermarkets that were able to open had hours-long waits and empty shelves. Major cities like Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, and the smaller towns in between were in a crisis. The full financial, emotional, and physical toll of the storm is still being brought to light, but at least 69 deaths and $18 billion of insured damage occurred. Those numbers are expected to rise.

Carbon monoxide poisoning, hypothermia, and inoperable at-home medical machines were some of the common factors that led to the deaths, but the winter storm—and the lack of structural preparation for it—was the true cause. Children and the elderly were the most vulnerable to freeze-related deaths. Countless others were catastrophically injured or killed in motor vehicle accidents as they tried to navigate unplowed, untreated roads.

At Arnold & Itkin, we're doing our part to help Texans move forward by demanding answers for those injured or killed in the winter storm and the disasters that followed.

Arnold & Itkin Holds Negligent Companies Accountable. No Matter How Big.

At the peak of the storm, more than 4.3 million power outages were reported. Families were left without power and heat for days, scrambling to keep warm in freezing temperatures. While this type of weather for Texas is certainly unusual, that does not mean that the resulting power disaster was inevitable. Grid operators like ERCOT and Entergy failed to winterize their equipment and misled customers about how long outages would last. Their failures lead to injury and death, and they should be made to answer for the harm they caused.

Arnold & Itkin has a long history of holding large corporations accountable when they prioritize profits over the safety and well-being of their customers. And as a Texas law firm, we are even more invested in the harm that power grid operators and other negligent parties caused. We’ve secured billions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, and we are prepared to fight for the compensation that our friends and neighbors deserve.
