Gas Explosion Death Yields $82.5-Million to Texas Worker's Family

A Texas jury awarded $82.5 million in damages to the family of a man who died in a 2007 explosion at Houston-based Hanover Compressions L.P., a natural gas processing plant in Hood County.

The company, which has since been renamed Exterran Energy Solutions L.P., constructed, engineered and installed the natural gas processing plant that the jury said was grossly negligent in the death of 27-year-old Joshua Wade Petrie, an employee of Fort Worth, Texas-based Quicksilver.

Gas workers have enough risks without adding to the risk by lack of employer protection. Workers know some of the risks. But adding to those risks by individual negligence or under-training employees increases the on-the-job danger tremendously. If you or someone you love has been injured in a workplace accident, The Doan Law Firm, P.C., led by Houston personal injury attorney Jimmy Doan, has extensive experience in worker's compensation and employee litigation. Contact The Doan Law Firm, P.C. today.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
