Plant & Refinery Accidents

Helping the Victims of New Mexico's Most Catastrophic Accidents

New Mexico Plant & Refinery Accident Attorneys

Leading Albuquerque Trial Lawyers Fighting for Injured Workers' Rights

For workers employed at New Mexico plants and refineries, the dangers you face occur daily; however, that does not mean that accidents are acceptable. From explosions to fires, plant and refinery accidents can have serious consequences. In fact, following a substantial accident, there may be as many as 15,000 people who file a claim.

Often, the main cause of these accidents can be linked back to human error or negligence of some kind. This could be the negligence of the owner or manager of the plant, the workers, or a third party—and it could manifest in ways such as failing to properly train the plant workers. As New Mexico plant and refinery accident attorneys, we fight for answers for injured workers, their families, and the people who live and work nearby. We work to help them recover the financial compensation it takes to rebuild and recover after serious accidents.

If you've been injured at a plant or refinery, it's crucial that you get the help you need. Contact Arnold & Itkin today.

New Mexico Nuclear Waste Accident

In 2014, a nuclear waste accident occurred in New Mexico that was described as a "horrific comedy of errors." Per preliminary reports, 30+ safety lapses occurred at the nuclear waste plant that led to the accident where a 55-gallon drum erupted. The drum had been buried more than 2,000 feet under the desert in a salt shaft and exploded radioactive foam on the local area. More than 20 workers were exposed to low-level radiation.

Incidents like this are unacceptable.
