The Dangers of DE Oil Refineries
We aggressively pursue full compensation, including punitive damages, for oil refinery workers injured by:
- Chemical burns
- Explosions and fires
Many catastrophic and fatal injuries are caused by these accidents. Oil refinery explosions send shock waves radiating out from the blast site at more than 1,000 feet per second. The force of a shock wave can instantly kill people who are near the blast. Those farther out are knocked down or thrown against objects, and may suffer brain injuries, fractures and spinal cord injuries.
After the shock wave, the explosion can produce a fireball that consumes everything in its path. Anyone caught by the fireball can suffer serious or fatal burn injuries.
There are very stringent work site safety rules put in place by OSHA. Unfortunately, these are often ignored as oil companies look to cut costs. If that is the case, you may have a personal injury claim in addition to your Workers’ Compensation claim.
