Petrochemical refineries provide many employment opportunities to workers across the Gulf Coast. Although the petroleum industry is a source of opportunity, our Lafayette petrochemical accident lawyers also realize that a petrochemical refinery can also be an extremely dangerous work environment. In petrochemical refineries, one accident or oversight can quickly lead to serious injury or even death.
Broussard & David is represents workers injured in petrochemical accidents. All too often, petrochemical accidents occur because employers cut corners and fail to implement adequate safety procedures. If you or a loved one were seriously injured in a petrochemical accident, you should contact a petrochemical accident attorney at our Lafayette firm who can protect your legal rights.
