Texas is currently the number one producer of oil here in the United States, meaning the United States owes its energy supply to the hard-working men and women in the oil industry right here in Texas. Unfortunately, oil refinery plants aren’t the safest places to work, and catastrophes do happen. If you or your loved one was injured, or fatally injured in an oil refinery accident, contact a competent San Angelo oil refinery plant explosion lawyer from The Mathis Law Firm for assistance.

If it wasn’t for our nation’s oil refinery workers, we simply wouldn’t have the means to power our homes, industries, and vehicles.

After a workplace injury or fatality, you can bet that a Tom Green County, Texas personal injury lawyer from The Mathis Law Firm has your back.
How Do Oil Refinery Injuries Happen?
All too frequently, we see oil refinery workers sustain critical, sometimes fatal injuries from plant explosions or fires. However, there is a wide range of injuries that can occur in oil refineries. Just some of the causes of those injuries are as follows:
- Oil tank corrosion
- Unsafely storing raw materials
- Using contaminated or otherwise unsafe raw materials
- Inadequately maintained machinery
- Failing to observe OSHA and oil refinery regulations
- Defective pumps, pipelines, boilers, or storage tanks
Recovering Compensation After an Injury or Fatality
If you or a loved one has been injured, or fatally injured on the job, our legal team is here to help get you the compensation you need. In most cases, employers in Texas don’t carry workers’ compensation insurance, so if we can’t get you compensated that way, we’ll likely end up filing a third-party claim on your behalf. As long as we can prove that you or your loved one was injured as a direct result of unsafe oil refinery conditions, you should recover compensation to help cover the following:
- The cost of medical bills
- The cost of lost wages
- Lower quality of life
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- In the case of wrongful death, funeral expenses, the cost of medical treatment prior to passing, and the loss of companionship or guidance, among other things
