Industrial Accident Lawyers in Lake Charles

Many of the nation’s largest petrochemical plants and advanced manufacturing facilities have set up shop in Louisiana, making it second in the country for crude oil production and third in natural gas production. Louisiana is among the top suppliers of energy products in the U.S. according to information from the Energy Information Administration. Leading companies in the steel industry have their manufacturing operations in Louisiana.

The impact of these industry giants’ presence means more jobs, opportunities, and wealth for Louisiana. The benefits come at a cost. Large industrial plants have been known to cut corners on employee safety to maximize their profit or productivity. Their techniques include disregarding safety protocols, poor oversight and training, lack of proper protective equipment, and poor maintenance of their facilities. These factors put workers at risk of significant accidents or injuries in jobs that already have some of the highest rates of serious injury and death.

Oil refinery explosions, chemical plant injuries from exposure to toxic gases and materials, as well as construction site injuries involving heavy machinery, are just a few of the dangerous occurrences that make industrial occupations dangerous. Proper safety procedures are crucial to reducing these inherent risks.
