Experienced Industrial Accident Lawyers in Louisiana
Louisiana is home to some of the largest petrochemical plants and advanced manufacturing facilities in the country. Second in the nation for crude oil production and third in natural gas production – the state is among top suppliers of energy products in the U.S. according to the Energy Information Administration. In addition, leading steel industry company’s manufacturing operations are based here in Louisiana.
These thriving industries bring good paying jobs to our state and have positive economic impacts. Unfortunately, these benefits can come at a cost for the hard-working men and women who are integral to the operation of these plants and refineries. Too often companies focus more on increasing profits and productivity than on safety investments to protect workers. Inadequate safety protocols, oversight and training, lack of proper protective equipment, and outdated facilities are all factors that contribute to unsafe work environments that can lead to catastrophic accidents and injuries.
Industrial jobs carry some of the highest risk of serious injury and death. Oil refinery explosions, chemical plant injuries such as exposure to toxic gases and materials, and construction site injuries involving heavy machinery are a few of the dangerous accidents that can occur in industrial occupations.
