When Disaster Strikes, We Fight for the Compensation Workers Deserve

Working at or even living near a chemical plant, factory, or oil refinery in the Dallas area can be dangerous. When safety standards are ignored or equipment malfunctions, fires, explosions, and other disasters can impact workers and anyone in the vicinity—leading to catastrophic injuries or even deaths.

Nearby homes and buildings, and the plant or refinery itself, may be completely ruined. In a recent explosion at a Houston manufacturing company that claimed the lives of two workers, the blast sent debris flying as far as half a mile from the site. Nearby homes had their windows shattered, and one even had its ceiling collapse. There’s no exaggerating just how terrible these incidents can be.

At Arnold & Itkin, we’ve represented individuals and families in some of the biggest plant and refinery accident cases in the country. From accidents near oilfields to those in refineries, we've helped all types of workers. This includes victims of the 2013 Williams Olefins plant in Geismar, LA and workers at plants and refineries throughout the U.S. We take on these cases because we believe in helping people—people who have already experienced the worst situations and are now facing uncertain futures. As Dallas plant explosion attorneys, we understand how to expose safety violations, cut corners, and equipment defects that leave innocent people injured or lost.

To find out if you have a case and how to get the care you need, call (888) 493-1629. Our Dallas plant accident attorneys are standing by to offer a free, confidential consultation. We serve survivors and families throughout the area, including those in Fort Worth and nationwide.

What Causes Plant, Refinery & Factory Accidents?

Plants, refineries, and factories in the Dallas area and throughout the country are required to follow a very long list of safety measures to protect workers and the general public. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) set and enforces these rules and regulations and will take action against any company that violates them, but not all violations are caught before injuries or deaths occur.

Plant and refinery accidents may be caused by:

  • Equipment defects
  • Design flaws
  • Improper maintenance
  • Failure to conduct routine maintenance
  • Poor hazard review
  • Inadequate safety training

These worksites involve so many different working parts, heavy machinery, equipment, and hazardous substances that even the smallest error could lead to a disaster. This makes it all the more important to implement the right training procedures, proper maintenance, and supervision. With our experience in handling cases of this kind, our Dallas plant accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin know what to look for in terms of safety violations, equipment defects, and other factors that contribute to chemical plant and oil refinery accidents. We expose wrongdoing to help survivors and victims' families recover the fair compensation they deserve.

Plant & Refinery Accident FAQ

What Causes Plant & Refinery Accidents?

Every plant and refinery accident is caused by a unique set of circumstances. However, our Dallas plant and refinery injury lawyers have found that most share one common characteristic: negligence. Negligence that causes an accident can include lack of maintenance, safety equipment, training, or hiring unsafe contractors.

Should I Accept My Company’s Settlement Offer After an Accident?

No, you shouldn’t accept any offers before speaking with an attorney. While it might seem like your company is trying to do the right thing, initial settlement offers are often low and don’t account for the full extent of the damages caused by an accident. Once a worker accepts a settlement, it’s likely that they won’t be able to pursue further compensation once discovering it isn’t enough. Speaking with our Dallas plant and refinery law firm is free, confidential, and will help you determine what you should do next.

What Can a Dallas Plant & Refinery Accident Law Firm Help With?

Our team is focused on making sure clients get the compensation they need to move forward after an accident. This means investigating what happened, determining who could’ve prevented the accident, and demanding payments for hardships such as lost wages, medical bills, future care, and more. Ultimately, we’re focused on making sure the financial needs of our clients are met so they don’t have to suffer more than they already have.
