An oil or gas refinery can be an extremely dangerous place to work, as workers are routinely exposed to serious hazards.  In the event of an oil and gas refinery explosion, injured workers often suffer due to work conditions that created a needlessly unsafe work environment.

Frequently, the explosion or accident at an oil or gas refinery was not even the fault of an injured worker’s direct employer, but another third party, such as a contractor/subcontractor or the facility owner.

Experience Getting Compensation for Injured Workers

The attorneys at Doyle Dennis LLP Trial Lawyers have experience handling workplace injuries claims where they may be complex issues of liability.  In an oil and gas refinery explosion, many layers of liability may exist, as there may be:

  • A failure to perform maintenance and repair of equipment and structures
  • A failure to follow industry codes and standards
  • A failure to properly supervise
  • No proper training program in place
  • Inadequate safety systems and procedures to prevent accidents and explosions
  • Negligence on the part of the operators of the refinery, as well as contractors, subcontractors, and other third parties
