Baytown, TX (PRWEB) October 10, 2012
Flames raged Wednesday afternoon at an ExxonMobil plant. Firefighters succeeded in putting out the fire, which started from a diesel product and spouted out of a column before being brought under control reported Eyewitness News ABC 13. Houston Accident Attorneys, a new website created to help injured workers find lawyers to assist them, is reaching out to the employees of the plant.
No workers were injured in the fire, according to officials with ExxonMobil. However, the petroleum company is continuing to do air quality tests both in the plant itself and in the surrounding community, “as a precaution,” according to an ExxonMobil PR contempt.
“We're very happy that no one seems to have been hurt,” said Jennifer Fletcher, spokeswoman for Houston Accident Attorneys. “We want all workers to know that even minor injuries can become major health concerns, and can affect your ability to work. That's why we help connect workers with experienced attorneys.”
Houston Accident Attorneys, a free service, allows injured workers to contact pre-screened lawyers with expertise in their type of case. Victims who use the site are under no obligation to hire the attorneys, but may find that they have a chance at compensation for their injuries.
“It's surprising how many people talk themselves out of the benefits they deserve,” Fletcher said. “Whether you develop a chronic cough or you trip and hurt yourself, don't let a supervisor or insurance company tell you it's part of the job. You're entitled to compensation.”
Houston Accident Attorneys also helps those injured in car accidents.
“We work with some of the best attorneys in the state,” Fletcher said. “If you were injured, the law provides for compensation for you. It will usually come from an insurance company, and it's more than they'd offer on their own. The only way to know what you qualify for is to talk to a lawyer, and we want to make that as easy as possible.”
