I Was Injured in a Refinery Plant Explosion. Who Can I Sue?
There’s a lot of different potential companies that you might be able to sue. First of all, the company that runs the refinery is a potential defendant. Often times, that’s it’s own company that’s actually in charge of day-to-day operations. You also might have a potential case against the company that owns the refinery. Sometimes those are two different companies, and sometimes the company that owns the refinery does have some involvement in the day-to-day operations.
You also might have a potential claim against other contractors and their companies who were working on side the time. With refineries, you often times have a lot of different types of companies that come in and do work on a contract basis, and a lot of times those people are the ones who are responsible for causing a refinery explosion or incident. You might have a claim against those people.
You also might have claims against individuals that cause incidents, it really depends, but the most notable people you have claims against are the refinery operator, the refinery owner, and other contractors that were present at the time.
