Recovered for Our Clients

West Texas Oil Refinery Injuries & Gas Explosion Accidents

Oil refinery and gas equipment workers must operate in inherently dangerous conditions rife with heavy machinery and risky scenarios. When they suffer injuries in a work-related accident, they deserve compensation to cover the full extent of their losses, including a temporary or permanent inability to return to work. Getting these vital financial resources can often be more challenging than it should be.

Our team will thoroughly investigate the accident, gather crucial evidence, and consult with industry experts to build a strong case. We will work tirelessly to hold all responsible parties accountable, including the business, insurance companies, and manufacturers, to ensure you receive the compensation you need to recover from your injuries and rebuild your life.

Does Workers’ Compensation Insurance Cover You?

Typically, an employer must have a policy when it has a certain number of employees. Thus, most oil refinery employees are covered by their employers’ policies and may seek benefits after a job-related accident.

Keep in mind that independent contractors are not covered by workers’ compensation insurance, but misclassification is a rampant problem. Many employees misclassified as independent contractors are still generally entitled to benefits when they are injured at work.

We Helped Ivan Flotte After a Gas Explosion

Ivan, a self-employed contractor, was called out to Odessa to repair a gas vehicle. Nearby, other people were working on a semi with an attached oil tanker.

Unfortunately, the area had not been properly vented and when the other workers lit a welding torch to make a repair, a terrible explosion occurred.

Ivan sustained 2nd and 3rd degree burns over much of his body and had to be transported to Lubbock to receive care. We helped him receive fair compensation for his injuries.
