Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
Baron and Budd lawyer John Langdoc was recently quoted in the Dallas Morning News regarding potential lawsuits in the aftermath of the West fertilizer plant explosion. Langdoc, a shareholder at Baron and Budd who has a history of working on toxic exposure lawsuits, spoke to the possible meaning behind the explosion and what that might mean for residents who have been affected.
“At this point, our advice has been for people to slow down and be careful,” said John Langdoc. “People need to be careful not to jump to any quick conclusion, and to not sign any documents that may be offered to them for a quick payment. You don’t want to sign your rights away.”
According to the latest news reports, last week’s West fertilizer plant explosion has killed at least 14, wounded more than 200 and destroyed dozens of homes in West. While the first lawsuits have already been filed regarding the explosion, an investigation into the causes of the blast are still pending. Baron and Budd lawyers continue to advise that it is still too early know the full impact of the explosion and how that may translate into lawsuits.
