West Fertilizer Plant Accident
We knew that this was a way we could use our knowledge to help. The more information our community has, the better they’ll be able to cope and rebuild.

After enduring hardship and embarking on the upcoming journey of restoration, the residents of West, Texas have proved themselves resilient. But despite the positive outlook in the region, the difficult process of rebuilding is not without challenges, as residents returned to damaged homes and began shuffling through belongings this weekend.

“As residents begin going through their homes and accounting for damage, the claims process can be mentally and emotionally exhausting,” said Carlson Law Firm Managing Partner, Craig Carlson. “Residents probably have a lot of questions about the process and what they need to do to rebuild and move forward. In an effort to help, we’ve organized a free legal workshop for those who’ve been affected by this tragedy.”

The Carlson Law Firm will be holding a free workshop at Knights of Columbus Old Hall, on Jerry Mashek Road on Wednesday, May 1st , between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. where residents will have access to free Powers of Attorney, free document drafting and free consultations regarding other general legal topics.

“We will have attorneys available with the technology to print and draft documents right on site,” Carlson said. “We knew that this was a way we could use our knowledge to help. The more information our community has, the better they’ll be able to cope and rebuild. We hope that we can answer their questions about the insurance claims process and offer free services that can make the restoration process a little easier.”

Lunch will be available between 11:00 a.m. and 1 p.m. for residents attending the workshop.

“West needs our prayers but they also need support that our communities can provide. Some people may be able to house those who’ve been displaced, others may be able to donate financially; still, others can provide their time and talents,” The Carlson Law Firm’s Waco attorney, Dominic Braus said.

Questions regarding damages, insurance claims and other legal challenges resulting from the fertilizer plant disaster can be daunting for those who’ve lost their home and experienced loss.

“The title “Attorneys and Counselors at Law” is something we take very seriously,” Carlson continued. “We know one of the most important gifts we have to give is just sitting down alongside those who’ve been affected by this tragedy and listening and answering some of the questions weighing on them.”
