Texas is one of many States that is involved in oil production, extraction, and refining. Oil has been one of the main sources of the Texas’ economic strength and employment, offering people with certain skills and training a good paying job. Refinery jobs may pay well, but because of the inherent dangers of working in this industry, some employees may suffer terrible injuries or death if an explosion. These catastrophic injuries include: Being crushed, severe burns, head & brain injuries, loss of limbs, and sometimes wrongful death. A refinery company may be at fault if its negligence caused an explosion or if it failed to properly monitor its work place to ensure that it was safe and had procedures in place to prevent the disaster. If an employee is caught in an area of explosion, devasting effects can happen to the individual and potentially to his/her family if serious injury or death occurs. If this happens you must hold the company responsible and be compensated for the serious injuries and other damages you and your family suffered.
