Numbers can be thrown around trying to illustrate the devastation caused by oil refinery accidents. In the past decade, thousands of people have been injured in oil refinery accidents of different types, hundreds fatally so. A leading cause of these types of accidents is a blast and blaze. An experienced oil refinery explosion lawyer is also familiar with an array of words that describe the consequences of an accident of this type: horrific, catastrophic, cataclysmic – apocalyptic.
If you or a loved one suffer the dismal, even debilitating consequences of an oil refinery explosion, there are a number of facts and factors that you must understand in order to protect your vital legal interests:
- Primary causes of oil refinery explosions

- Compensation for injuries, damages, losses from an oil refinery explosion

Primary Causes of Oil Refinery Explosions
Oil refinery explosions in Texas, Louisiana, and in other locations in the United States have been caused by a myriad of different reasons. Indeed, many oil refinery blasts are the result of more than one underlying cause. With that duly noted, there are nine more commonplace underlying causes of petroleum processing plant explosions:
- Improper machinery maintenance
- Inadequate worker training
- Lack of suitable equipment inspection
- Improperly stored chemicals
- Poor worker safety equipment, gear, and protocols
- Lack of suitable facility management
- Equipment manufacturing defects
- Equipment design defects
- Inadequate emissions and discharge systems

Compensation for Injuries, Damages, Losses from an Oil Refinery Explosion
The facts and circumstances surrounding an oil refinery explosion and associated injuries dictate the nature and extent of compensation awarded to a victim of this type of traumatic accident. With that said, an oil refinery explosion lawyer from our firm typically fights for compensation on behalf of a client that includes:
- Medical bills and expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Mental anguish and emotional distress

In some cases, spending on the underlying facts surrounding an oil refinery explosion, we may also be able to seek what are known as punitive damages or exemplary damages. This is additional compensation awarded when an oil refinery company has been reckless or engaged in some type of particularly egregious conduct that gave rise to an explosion at a facility.
