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.

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.
