Petrochemical Claims

Refinery explosions and other accidents can result in severe injuries to workers and people near the site of the accident. These accidents are often times caused by the negligent behavior of owners or managers, by defects in equipment, or by inadequate safety measures. In these and certain other cases, the victims may be eligible for financial compensation.

Pipeline explosions and natural gas explosions are only a few of the type of major cases involving the petrochemical industry.

We have successfully handled a variety of severe explosion injury cases at petrochemical plants and oil refineries. Some of the common adverse results associated with the manufacturing and storage of compounds obtained from petroleum or natural gas accidents include:

  • Burns (Fire, steam and chemical)
  • Chemical Releases / Chemical Spills
  • Falls and fall restraint failure
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ("PTSD")
  • Refinery explosions

Many of the injuries associated with petrochemical and refinery accidents (including burns from explosions and scalding liquid, and spinal cord and head injuries from falls) often result in serious injuries that prevent the injured worker from ever returning to the job. Many of these injuries result in permanent injury and many others are fatal.

One of the biggest dangers to any refinery worker are fire and explosions.  Both of these situations can also lead to inhalation of toxic fumes.

Refinery owners are obligated to provide a work environment that is properly maintained, meeting safety and environmental guidelines and regulations which are often insufficient or not up to standard.

If your family has experienced the tragedy of a petrochemical or refinery accident that has resulted in serious injury, physical impairment, or death, please contact our office today.
