If you or someone you love was involved in a plant or refinery explosion, you’re aware of the catastrophic and devastating effects they can have. Such explosions impact the lives of workers and their families, as well as the surrounding community. These explosions are often preventable, and even in cases where they are not, companies must do all they can to prevent physical harm and death. If workers sustain injury or die, it’s often because the factory did not provide enough protection, including skimping on safety measures and using outdated equipment. If you have been injured in a plant explosion, you should see your doctor as soon as possible and contact an attorney to hold the liable party responsible and see if you’re entitled to compensation.
