Liability in Plant Explosions

When an explosion occurs in a petrochemical plant there is obviously risk of immediate, serious injury to those who work within the facility. However, workers are not the only individuals at risk following a plant explosion. Chemical explosions and fires have the potential to put large amounts of hazardous chemicals into the air, impacting people in nearby communities.

Chemical exposure, depending on the specific compounds involved, may be completely harmless. However, exposure to some chemicals, especially those typically found in petrochemical plants, can carry significant risk. One of the issues in determining the impact of chemical exposure is that symptoms may not present for months or years after exposure. For that reason, if you live in a community that has been impacted by a chemical plant explosion, it’s important to document that you have been exposed. The Begum Law Group Injury Lawyers has created a way to help document your exposure. Please complete our contact form and we will contact you to collect any additional information that may be relevant.
