Contact Our Galveston Plant and Refinery Accident Attorneys: (888) 273-1045
Due to highly explosive materials and ample amounts of heavy machinery occupying large amounts of space,oil plant refineries can be extremely dangerous. For this reason, companies and employees must ensure adequate safety precautions are followed at every level of these refineries. When companies and employers fail to abide by necessary safety protocols, employees can become seriously harmed or sustain fatal injuries.
Recently, three employees were injured at Marathon Petroleum’s Corporation’s Galveston Bar Refinery located in Texas City, Texas on January 11, 2016 after a fire ignited. This was not the first serious accident that occurred at this specific oil plant. In fact, in March 2005, 13 employees sustained fatal injuries in the facility while an additional 180 individuals suffered injuries. This accident is recognized as the deadliest refinery accident that has occurred over the past 10 years.
