Our competent attorneys have successfully handled various severe personal injury cases involving explosions at petrochemical factories and oil refineries. For more than 50 years, the law firm Zehl & Associates has provided professional services and represents individuals injured by petrochemical accidents and those occurring in refineries. Our expert s have witnessed the disastrous consequences that accidents cause in these people and their families’ lives, and we have seen the tragedy caused by the death of a worker in a refinery or the petrochemical industry.
Injuries in Refinery accidents
The injuries a worker can sustain from an oil or natural gas accident include:
- Burns (from fire, steam, and chemicals)
- Chemical Release / Oil Spills
- Falls and lack of fall prevention system
- Refinery explosions
- Post–Traumatic Stress Disorder or “PTSD.”
Many of the injuries resulting from accidents in the petrochemical industry and refineries (including injuries to the spine and brain caused by falls and burns from explosions and boiling liquid) cause serious injuries that prevent the injured worker return to work. Many of the injuries are permanent, and many of them are fatal.
