I Was Injured in a Refinery Plant Explosion. Who Can I Sue?
There are a number of companies that could be responsible and included as defendants in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit arising from an industrial accident or explosion.
First, the operator that runs the plant/refinery is always a potential defendant, because they are directly involved in the operations that are taking place on a daily basis.
The owner would also be a proper defendant, as it is extremely common for plant and refinery owners to retain control over operations at the facility.
You’re also likely to have a claim against other contractors that were on-site at the time of the accident or explosion. Contractors are often involved with operations, turnovers, and maintenance at plants and refineries, making them proper defendants in a lawsuit over an accident or explosion at the facility.
