It is common knowledge that plants and refineries are dangerous workplaces;
should equipment be outdated, employees be improperly trained, or safety
policies be violated, it can lead to catastrophic accidents.
Chemical and refinery plant explosions are an all too common occurrence
throughout the country and even the world.
Causes of plant explosions are commonly linked to the negligence of the plant owner, as well as the
disregard for OSHA regulations that can make the damage all the more tragic.
Regardless, however, of the cause or whether the explosion or fire occurred
at a chemical plant, power plant, or refinery, you have legal rights that
deserve to be protected.
Therefore, if you or a loved one have recently been involved in a plant
explosion—no matter the type of injury that was sustained or if
you have suffered from
substantial property damage—it is highly encouraged that you get the involvement of an experienced
lawyer who can help you seek the just outcome you deserve.
Take, for example, the
plant explosion and fire
at a fertilizer plant north of Waco, TX. In initial reports, it was stated
that more than 120 people suffered injuries, with many of them being critical.
The damage, however, did not end there. In fact, officials reported that
a four-block radius around the block was effectively demolished, with
dozens of homes being completely destroyed.
