When people think of refinery explosions, one of the first that comes to mind is the Navajo Refinery explosion in 2012 that resulted in the deaths of two workers with an additional two injured.  However, this unfortunately was not an isolated incident.  Many refineries suffer explosions that cause severe injuries and even death but are not all over the news.

New Mexico plant and refinery accident claims are regulated by the Occupation Safety and Health Administration, commonly known as OSHA.  OSHA is an agency within the United States Department of Labor and they are responsible for ensuring workplace safety and health programs.   The plant and refinery professions, by and large, are high hazard industries that comprise various activities primarily associated with chemical and petroleum production.  Workers in these fields have many job duties that expose them to serious safety hazards in connection with performing their jobs.  These workers can experience catastrophic injuries which can have far-reaching and lasting implications on their ability to work and their personal lives.

These accident cases typically involve a higher degree of expertise due to their complexity.  For example, permanent disfigurement may require a life care plan tailored to your unique circumstances.  There may also be substantial future medical care costs associated with your injuries.  Typically, experts are needed to prove up these claims.  In conjunction with our own expertise, we will ensure we have the right experts on your case in order to successfully prove up both the liability and injury claim.
