Houston Oil Refinery Accident Lawyer
When you watch advertisements for personal injury firms on television or in the newspaper, you probably don’t see many ads that talk about oil refinery accidents or explosions. Quite frankly, many personal injury attorneys practice almost exclusively in auto accident cases and have little or no experience in cases involving refinery explosions.
At The Freeman Law Firm in Houston, Texas, we offer experienced legal representation for people who have been injured in a wide range of worksite injuries, including those at refineries. In particular, we have the resources and capabilities for claims involving injuries inflicted at petrochemical refineries.
Common Causes of Oil Refinery Accidents
Through our experience, we have learned that many refinery accidents are caused by:
- Faulty equipment
- Poor safety procedures
- Negligent subcontractors
- Other forms of third party negligence
Know Your Rights
If you have been injured in a refinery explosion or other worksite injury, you may have been told that your only form of available recovery is workers’ compensation. This may not be true.
If you have sustained an injury by a third party, you may have a basis for recovery through a civil lawsuit. Our attorneys do not handle workers compensation claims, but we are prepared to analyze your case in a free consultation and help you determine if you may have a viable personal injury claim against a negligent third party, such as an independent subcontractor.
