Seeking Justice After Industrial Accidents in Beaumont No Matter What

Over the last 100 years, industrial work has built this country into the economic powerhouse that it is today. As the nation’s wealth grew, so did the nation’s need for safe workplaces. As a result, safety standards were implemented to protect workers. Today, many employers ignore these standards and approach the safety of their workers with neglectful and unsafe practices. Workers are placed at unnecessary risk across the nation’s chemical refineries, construction sites, and other industrial workplaces.

Those who work in the following settings may experience an industrial accident:

  • Drilling Rigs
  • Mines
  • Warehouses
  • Factories
  • Gas & Oil Refineries
  • Chemical Plants
  • Construction Sites

Industrial Accident Injuries

Large machinery, dangerous chemicals, and high temperatures are just a few of the dangers experienced by industrial workers each day. Due to the inherent danger of industrial jobs, employers have an obligation to protect employers.

Personal injuries suffered in industrial workplaces include:

  • Burn Injuries from chemicals, plant explosions, and fires
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Unstable Scaffolding
  • Electric Shock
  • Crushing
  • Blunt Force Trauma
  • Penetrating Trauma

The accidents listed above are just a few of the possible tragedies that employees and contractors face each day in the industrial world. However, employers are not released from responsibility simply because the nature of industrial work is dangerous. In fact, companies are required by law to look after those who work for their profits.

The Occupational Safety & Health Act

Signed into law in 1970, the Occupational Safety and Health Act introduced strict new standards to help create a safe work environment in the industrial setting. This law required specific requirements for educating workers on the safety and health risks of their job. Since this law, the workers of Texas and the rest of the nation have experienced heightened workplace safety standards. However, the law is not always thoroughly enforced, and some companies take advantage of this fact. If you believe that a workplace is unsafe, you should notify your supervisors immediately. If an employer is made aware of a danger and fails to fix it before an injury occurs, they may be liable for whatever injuries that hazard causes. Laws exist to protect every citizen, and if they are not followed, employers must be held accountable. The reality is, with the existence of the OSH Act of 1970, no company has a legitimate excuse for any accident.

Results Obtained for Texas Workers

Our Beaumont industrial accident lawyers often seek justice in the wake of tragedies that could have been prevented. In 2013, the William Olefins refinery in Geismar, Louisiana exploded. The blast left destruction and heartache behind for the citizens of Geismar as 2 lives were lost—and 167 others were injured. When the industrial accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin LLP investigated the incident, we discovered an alarming pattern of negligence on the part of the employer. The explosion was determined to have been caused by a poorly designed valve system on a reboiler. Though it was installed for years before the explosion, it was at a constant risk for explosion given just the right set of events.

Our plant accident attorneys were able to reveal that William Olefins (and others) ignored warnings that the system was unsafe. Their negligence virtually ensured that the reboiler would eventually explode. Despite being resisted at every step of the way by the energy company, we proved our case and were able to achieve two large settlements for the workers of the plant. In total, workers were awarded $33.95 million in damages, allowing them to achieve the financial stability needed to rebuild their lives.
