Apex NC Lawyers
The town of Apex, whose motto is “The Peak of Good Living,” is considered a suburb of the larger city of Raleigh, and it is a popular place to live among Raleigh lawyers and Durham lawyers. The town was named because it was built on the highest part of a portion of railroad that ran through the area. Apex has been plagued with numerous fires, some of which destroyed major portions of the town. Most recently, a chemical fire in 2006 thrust Apex into the national spotlight when much of the town’s residents were forced to evacuate.

Nearly three years after the 2006 explosion in the chemical facility in Apex, the company responsible is finally being held accountable.

Under the terms of the settlement, people who were forced out of their homes because of the explosion will receive about $750 while those forced out of their businesses will receive about $2,200. The town of Apex also expects to get about $85,000 in unclaimed money from the multi-million dollar settlement.
