Chemical Plant Injuries
Louisiana is home to hundreds of chemical plants, oil refineries and other industrial manufacturing facilities. These plants are a backbone of our state’s economy and employ thousands of highly trained employees. However, these chemical plants and refineries can also be extremely dangerous and present major health risks when they do not follow the strict guidelines set forth by safety officials.
Injuries caused by accidents or negligent safety procedures at chemical plants can have devastating and life-threatening consequences for individual employees, their families and their communities. These types of accidents can cause serious personal injury, property damage, and in some cases, even the wrongful death of an employee.
Many Louisiana residents will remember the tragic events that took place on June 13th, 2013 at the Williams Olefins Plant just 20 miles outside of Baton Rouge. In this case, the failure of a piece of mechanical equipment triggered a massive explosion at the plant, killing two workers and seriously injuring 114 others. Tragically, this accident was not an isolated incident, and serious and even fatal injuries occur every year at chemical plants throughout Louisiana due to negligence, unsafe equipment and mechanical failures.
Chemical plant injuries often include:
- Injuries caused by fires and explosions
- Injuries caused by improperly maintained or defective equipment
- Exposure to hazardous materials
- Chemical burns
- And more
