Pipelines are placed under extreme pressure in the process of transporting oil and gas across Texas and into other parts of the country. Over time, the metal walls of the pipe can weaken, creating an increased risk of the eventual failure of the pipeline as well as the potential for explosions that lead to serious or even fatal injuries.
Owners and operators carry the responsibility for ensuring the integrity of their pipelines. When that responsibility goes unfulfilled, they can and should be held accountable for the harm that occurs as the result of any explosions or other accidents related to identifying and properly addressing gas leaks and other issues. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a pipeline explosion that occurred because of metal fatigue, poor welding, poor installation practices, poor pipeline marking and identification or pipeline corrosion, speak with a qualified lawyer immediately.
