On St. Patrick’s Day, 2019, a massive explosion at the ITC Deer Park petrochemical plant created four days of fire, which brought with it thick plumes of black smoke over Houston. Hundreds of local residents, workers, and companies were affected. One of the lawyers that had been contacted by friends, and then friends of friends, reached out to Fred and William Hagans to help him and the 100+ clients he suddenly found himself with.
On the day before Thanksgiving, 2019, a loud boom filled the early morning Port Neches air as explosions and nine fires broke out around the TPC chemical plant. Fred and William Hagans met with one family, who called a mutual friend, over Thanksgiving weekend.
