Refinery Accidents and Plant Explosions in Houston

There are many reasons why accidents at refineries and plants happen. However, your employer owes you a duty of care while you’re on the job, and if you’re injured at work, it’s crucial to know if you have a compensation claim. 

Under state and federal law, there are three ways you might claim compensation for accidents and chemical plant explosions in Houston:

  • laws around Workers’ Compensation 
  • strict products liability
  • traditional principles of negligence

A knowledgeable refinery injury lawyer in Houston can determine how best to proceed with your claim based on the facts. 

Why You Need a Houston Plant Injury Attorney

Refinery and Plant explosion accidents almost always involve third parties. However, the relationship of the parties and their corresponding legal duties is an area of the law that is very complex and requires a careful analysis of the facts by an attorney experienced with these types of cases.

An expert, under the supervision and directions of an attorney, should immediately investigate refinery or plant explosions. It is imperative that the investigation is completed before evidence is lost or destroyed. An expert can take pictures of the injuries and machinery before anything is changed or moved.

Under Texas law, employees generally cannot sue their employers for injuries that occur during the course and scope of their employment if the employer is a subscriber to Workers’ Compensation insurance. However, the employee’s estate can sue the employer for gross negligence if the injury results in death.

Furthermore, the Texas bar does not prevent an injured employee from suing third parties that are responsible for their injuries. This also includes manufacturers of products that are defective.
