Texas has the most oil refineries of any state in the country, with 23
facilities throughout the Lone Star State. The oil and gas industry accounts
for nearly a quarter of all the economic activity in the state, while
14.3 percent of the population - 2 million Texans - work in the industry.
Oil refineries provide the livelihood for vast numbers of people in this
state, but they also pose grave dangers to those who work on them. Accidents
occurring in oil refineries can range from isolated incidents which seriously
injure an individual worker, to enormous fires or explosions which injure
or kill dozens.
Legal Representation for Injured Oil Refinery Workers
Whether you have been injured on an oil refinery in Corpus Christi or anywhere
else in the state, we urge you to contact us at Farah Law for a free case
evaluation with an attorney from our team. We have offices in McAllen
and can come to your home if you cannot travel to our office. We have
over 50 years of legal experience and we know how to effectively prepare
a personal injury or
wrongful death claim involving an oil refinery accident.
Unless your employer has workers' compensation insurance, it will be necessary
to conduct an extensive investigation of the accident to determine the
cause and to establish that your employer or another party is at fault
for causing your injuries or the death of a loved one. It may be possible
to prove your claim by demonstrating that your employer is guilty of violating
safety regulations which are in place to prevent falls, gas leaks, explosions,
chemical fires, release of noxious fumes or other accidents. Even if your
employer does have workers' compensation insurance, it will still be necessary
to carefully prepare your claim by proving the full scope and extent of
your injuries and any resulting disability in order to maximize the value
of your benefits.
