Woking in the refineries, oil field industry, and chemical plants brings along the risk of explosions and accidents. That’s why these industries pay higher wages to employees than the average because these jobs are associated with danger. As per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas ranked first from 2007 to 2011 in the number employee fatalities in the oil field and gas industries. Well, there is no specific reason why the death rate due to plant and refinery accident is higher in Texas than the neighboring states. Often, it is difficult to find out whether you need a plant and refinery accident attorney in Texas immediately after a destructive accident. We’ve explained some of the ways that will help you determine whether you need or not a personal lawyer to represent your best interests.

How many people were injured or killed in this major accident or explosion?

According to a journalistic cliche, “if it bleeds, it leads,” this is true for all the cases. The media usually runs to the accidents scenes at plants and refineries where massive fatalities occur, broadcast these tragedies in the following days and weeks. In such cases, the companies who are responsible for these casualties, come under the spotlight, which makes difficult for these companies to deny their responsibility. In some cases, companies use these situations to tender fair settlement offers. However, with a personal injury lawyer by your side, you can file a lawsuit against high profile cases, which are complex having multiple defendants with varying degrees of liability.

Is there class action lawsuit filed regarding the injured employees?

You may be eligible for joining an already-filed class action litigation, or your interests may be best represented by hiring a separate plant and refinery attorney.

Are your injuries severe enough that you will need an extended period of time to recover during which you will not work and earn money?

If Worker’s Compensation payments is not adequate to meet your requirements and living expenses while you recover from your injuries.

What your physician has to say about your recovery, and will you need long-term rehabilitative services?

If this is your case, any compensation offered must be enough to meet your future medical expenses, or else you have to pay your own bills.

Will you get the runaround from insurance adjusters, or are the parties at-fault trying to deny responsibility?

This is perhaps the last thing one could think. Signs such as “passing the buck” is a sign that companies are attempting to deny their responsibility about the accident which left you and several other employees with serious injuries. Although all these factors are enough to know that you need to hire a qualified and experienced personal injury lawyer, if you notice that insurance adjusters and company execs are making attempts to shrink their role to offer fair compensation for your injuries, you shouldn’t wait any longer.

We hope, now you know whether or not you need a personal injury attorney. If you or your loved one have involved in a plant and refinery accident, you must consult an expert and well-skilled plant and refinery accident attorney in Texas.
