What is the Time Limit on Oil Refinery Injury Claims?
Because refinery accidents may give rise to multiple claims, several different time limits may apply in your case. The workers’ compensation law in Texas mandates that any injury or illness must be reported to an employer within 30 days. Workers have one year to file a claim for benefits. Maritime oil and gas workers have three years to file a claim under the Jones Act.
Personal injury and wrongful death claims stemming from a refinery accident must be brought within two years. This includes negligence-based claims against your employer and/or a third party, such as a contractor, property owner, etc., as well as product liability claims against the maker(s) of a defective product.
