Representing Workers Injured in Chemical Plant and Refinery Accidents

In the oil and gas industry, chemical plants and refineries are in the “downstream” sector, engaged in refining the crude oil that was first extracted and then transported by tankers. The marketing and selling of oil and gas are also considered to be a downstream sector activity — just as dangerous as the jobs of the workers who extract and transport — but that doesn’t mean chemical plants and refineries are free from dangerous accidents.

The injury attorneys of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner know that employees and subcontractors who work for chemical plants and refineries are seriously injured or killed every year. We also know that refinery fires and explosions can hurt people living close to the refinery. We know because we’ve handled these cases for 70 years. We are the oldest plaintiffs personal injury law firm in Texas. Call (713) 222-7211 (toll free 713-222-7211) or contact our office online for a free consultation.

With the proper safety precautions and maintenance, fires and explosions could be prevented — saving workers and local residents from injury and property damage. That’s where we come in.
