Another oil refinery explosion has caused work injury and worker death, and has also led to the fling of workers compensation claims, this time in New Mexico. The Navajo Refinery, owned by Dallas, Texas based Holly Corp., exploded because the plant operator failed to follow safety instructions. According to a recently filed lawsuit, several workers were injured the the explosion, some suffering burn injury. Apparently, a large tank used to produce tar exploded, causing this incident.
Often, with explosions like the Navajo Refinery explosion, injured workers will look for the best workers compensation lawyer in Atlanta or whatever state where they are located. And, while there are always viable workman’s comp claims, a more substantial recovery can be made against other contractors involved in the explosion or the refinery owner. These are the types of claims that lawyers who only do workers comp won’t know anything about. The Flynn Law Firm specializes in representing workers in both Georgia workers compensation claims and third party claims against contractors, inspection companies, and premises owners.
