Houston plant and refinery accident lawyers
We fight for injured workers' rights
Chemical plants and oil refineries are big employers in the Houston area. But the work can be dangerous. Negligence at the workplace can easily lead to an accident that causes serious injuries. The attorneys at Tracey & Fox help injured workers by taking action to hold negligent parties responsible.
Powerful equipment and large amounts of hazardous materials can be found at every plant and refinery in Texas. The Occupational and Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has established rules and regulations that plants and refineries must follow to keep the workplace safety. But due to negligence, those rules and regulations are sometimes not followed. Too many times, the result is an accident in which a worker gets seriously hurt.
Some common accidents in Houston plants and refineries include slips and falls, being hit by falling objects, heavy equipment accidents, fires and explosions. These accidents are usually caused by negligence. An employer did not follow safety protocols or properly train employees, or failed to correct a known hazard. The employer may have failed to provide the proper safety equipment. In some cases, the accident may have been caused by defective equipment from the manufacturer.
