Refinery, Plant Accidents And Injuries

Refinery/Plant Accidents & Injuries - Houston Texas Lawyers

Texans who work in oil refineries — particularly older refineries that are not on-par with new technology — are at risk of being exposed to toxic chemicals, explosions and other dangers. Oil refinery and plant workers are put in harm's way far too often. As events over the last decade has shown the result can be catastrophic, or even deadly. At the law firm of Manuel Gonzales, P.C., my colleagues and I provide skilled workers' compensation help to injured workers.

You Should Report Your Injury

In my experience as a workers' compensation attorney, I have found that employers, contractors and subcontractors will fight two issues. One, they will dispute the issue of whether the accident happened. And two, they will dispute the severity of the worker's injury, otherwise known as an extent of injury dispute.

Injured refinery and plant workers may face retaliation or have limits placed on their future employment contracts. This is why injuries are often disputed. Other employees and managers have to report official accidents. A serious oil refinery accident is therefore a "recordable" situation that can affect them adversely. This is why they tell you, "Don't report it."
