Fighting for Plant & Refinery Accident Victims Rebuild Their Lives. No Matter What.

Baton Rouge Plant Explosion Lawyers

Helping Obtain Justice After Chemical Plant & Oil Refinery Accidents

At Arnold & Itkin LLP, we are passionate advocates for those injured in Louisiana plant, factory, and refinery accidents. As Baton Rouge industrial injury lawyers, we have been there to help hundreds of workers over the years, workers who are facing the absolute worst time of their life. These are individuals who have been involved in horrifically traumatic events—the kind of event that you should never be forced to endure.

What makes these accidents worse is that, in almost every situation, they are preventable.

They are caused by details that the company knew about but chose to ignore—making the decision, more often than not, to prioritize profits over the safety and even lives of their workers. It never fails to surprise us to find how little companies defend their employees. How little action they take to ensure that their workers are protected from these catastrophic events and then how little responsibility they take in the aftermath. These companies fail to shield their employees from harm in the first place and then they fail to help them in the recovery process.

“There is sometimes a difference between what we want to believe and what reality is. We all want to believe that these big companies—big energy companies, chemical companies, oil and gas companies—that they care about safety, that they care about the workers who go in day and day out and work hard, really hard, putting it all on the line for the companies. We want to believe that the companies also care about the workers. The reality of that is that it’s not true. What the companies really care about is dollars and cents.”
- Plant Accident Attorney Jason Itkin

If you have suffered in such an accident, we want you to know that we’re here for you. No matter whether you have been injured in a chemical plant explosion or if a loved one suffered wrongful death in an oil refinery accident, we are here to help you pick up the pieces and demand the justice you deserve. When we take on one of these cases, we fight tirelessly for the truth. We know the documents that we need to find, we know the documents that the company is going to try and hide, and we will stop at nothing to ensure that we uncover what actually happened—who is actually responsible. Then, we stop at nothing to help our clients recover and move into a future where they can take care of their family.

2013 Plant Explosion Southeast of Baton Rouge, Louisiana

In 2013, an ordinary day at work turned into a nightmare when the catastrophic failure of a heat exchanger trigged an explosion that could be felt for miles. That day, more than 100 employees suffered severe, life-threatening injuries. Two were killed. The location of the plant was Geismar, Louisiana, just 20 miles southeast of Baton Rouge—and what happened that June would send ripples throughout the community for years.

When the dust settled, and the survivors realized how little help they would receive from the company, many turned to our firm. Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Kyle Findley spearheaded the case, helping multiple individuals who had suffered from the cataclysmic events that occurred on June 13. We refused to take no for an answer and fought tirelessly, using our vast resources and experience to uncover evidence, find documents, and build an argument that proved how the company’s negligence endangered their employees.

Over the course of two separate trials, we fought for our clients. We beat back the charges raised by the other side and the arguments that they attempted. In the end, we successfully recovered more than $30 million on behalf of our clients, winning $15.45 million in the first case and then $18.5 million in the second.
