Dallas Plant & Refinery Accident Lawyers
When Disaster Strikes, We Fight for the Compensation Workers Deserve
Working at or even living near a plant, factory, or refinery can be dangerous. When safety standards are ignored or equipment malfunctions, fires, explosions, and other catastrophes 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. This includes victims of the 2013 Williams Olefins plant in Geismar, Louisiana, and workers at plants and refineries across Texas and 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.
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.
