Plant & Refinery Accidents in Louisiana

Accidents in these environments can occur due to various reasons, such as:

  • Equipment failures
  • Ignition of flammable gases or vapors
  • Chemical leaks or spills
  • Explosions and fires
  • Falls from height
  • Exposure to hazardous substances

Multiple parties may be responsible for the injuries and fatalities of accidents caused by the above factors. These can include the company that owns the plant or refinery; they are responsible for maintaining safe working conditions and ensuring safety procedures are developed and implemented. 

Equipment manufacturers may be responsible for faulty or defective equipment. This can be considered a form of product liability. Contractors from other companies present on the site at the time of the accident could also share some liability if their actions contributed to unsafe conditions. 

Companies or individuals tasked with maintaining equipment or safety systems could be liable if their failure to perform their duties adequately played a part in the accident. Chemical suppliers could be responsible if chemicals were improperly stored or handled, leading to an explosion. 

The above failures and negligence can boil down to inadequate safety procedures, insufficient training or supervision, poor equipment maintenance or production, and non-compliance with safety regulations. 

Determining liability can be complicated, which is why you need a law firm that routinely handles such cases and has the capabilities and resources to make an effective investigation.
