Unfortunately, the U.S. leads all other countries in refinery explosion deaths. For residents and plant workers located in Pasadena and Deer Park, the danger of plant explosions is a reality of life. High temperatures, high pressure applications and caustic substances can be a recipe for serious injury or death. Although workers compensation rules can sometimes severely limit recoveries by injured workers, it is important to thoroughly investigate the issues of whether the explosion was caused by a defective product, or by the negligence of the employees of company other than the injured worker’s employer. These issues can make a huge difference in the injured worker’s recovery. For these reasons, it is important that the injured worker consult an experienced lawyer before signing any documents after being injured in a plant explosion. The attorneys at Wham & Rogers have experience handling plant explosion cases and have roots in the Pasadena area.
