WESLACO OIL & GAS REFINERY EXPLOSION
CHOOSE A DEDICATED ATTORNEY WHO UNDERSTANDS YOUR NEEDS
The results of a refinery explosion of any kind can be disastrous – even fatal. Unfortunately, safety is frequently set aside in favor of expediency, as the gas and oil industry offers incentives to move as quickly as possible with more money. Though it is no secret that oil refineries are inherently a dangerous place to work, this is no excuse for allowing safety to fall by the wayside. When a company forces their employees to rush to stay on schedule, they are putting their people at risk. This is not okay. Our Weslaco personal injury lawyer at Lopez Law Group is dedicated to ensuring that if you or a loved one was injured because of the negligence of an employer, you get the compensation you need.
COMMON CAUSES OF REFINERY ACCIDENTS
The vast majority of accidents suffered in oil and gas refineries can be traced back to a failure to adhere to safety procedures, faulty equipment, and the negligence of subcontractors or other third parties.
Some of the most common injuries sustained by oil and gas refinery employees include:
Unsafe jobsite equipment
Benzene exposure or other toxic exposure
Fires or explosions
Accidents like these can cause long-lasting, irreparable harm. If you have sustained injuries from accidents like these, it is possible that you were told that your only option is workers’ compensation, but that may not be the case. Our team is willing to fight for you to get the recovery you need and deserve so that you can continue to provide for your family.
