Common Plant & Refinery Accidents

As previously mentioned, oil and gas industry workers face a number of safety risks every day. These risks dramatically increase when employers and coworkers fail to abide by standard industry safety regulations.

Some of the most common plant and refinery accidents include:

  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Gas leaks
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals/fumes
  • Slip and falls/falls from heights
  • Crush accidents
  • Accident amputation

These and other common accidents can result from insufficient training, improper maintenance, and inadequate supervision. Defective tools and equipment can also lead to devastating plant and refinery accidents, which often cause such devastating injuries as head and back injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, internal organ damage, chronic illness, and more.

Compensation for Injured Workers

In Louisiana, injured plant and refinery workers may seek compensation through the state’s workers’ compensation program. It is not necessary to prove fault in order to recover workers’ compensation. In some cases, such as when an employer or fellow worker acted negligently and this negligence led to an employee’s injuries or death, the injured victim or his/her family members may bring a third-party work injury claim.

At Hinch & Associates PLC, our Lake Charles plant and refinery accident lawyers can help you seek fair financial compensation for your losses. This may include compensation for medical bills, lost wages/income, pain and suffering, lost earning ability (disability), death benefits, and more. We understand the immense stress you and your family are under, and we are here to provide the compassionate, personalized, and aggressive legal support you need.
