Protect Your Rights After A Refinery Or Plant Accident
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 have shown, the result can be catastrophic or even deadly.
I am attorney Manuel Gonzales, and I provide skilled workers’ compensation help to injured workers. Were you injured while working at an oil refinery or plant? You need a workers’ compensation attorney who can fight the insurance company for the money you deserve.

Steps To Take After An 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 workers’ injuries, 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 not to report it. At my law firm, I encourage you to stand up for your rights and report the injury. I can help you throughout the entire process of pursuing workers’ compensation benefits. I will seek the maximum benefit amounts you are entitled to for all injuries you have sustained in the course and scope of employment. I also handle wrongful death claims involving oil and plant refinery accidents or toxic exposure. If you were injured in a refinery or plant accident, call me to schedule your free initial consultation.
