Oil Refinery Workers Face Dangerous Conditions, Deadly Explosions

ANACORTES, Wash. -- From 500 yards away, John Moore felt the concussion before he heard it.

Moore was midway through a 6 p.m.-to-6 a.m. shift as an operator at the Tesoro Corporation's oil refinery in Anacortes, an island town 80 miles north of Seattle. It was 35 minutes after midnight on April 2, 2010.

Up the hill from Moore, in the Naphtha Hydrotreater unit, seven workers were restoring service to a bank of heat exchangers -- radiator-like devices containing flammable hydrocarbons, that had been gummed up by residue and cleaned. Most of the workers didn't need to be there; it was, for them, a training exercise.

Moore was monitoring the job by radio. "They were maybe tw

Can You Sue a Doctor for Withholding Information?

While most people think of medical malpractice claims only in terms of the clear errors, like amputating the wrong leg, or dropping a junior mint into someone's body during surgery, it is generally much more nuanced. When a doctor fails to make an appropriate diagnosis, prescribes the wrong medication, or fails to communicate important information, malpractice claims may be possible in these situations as well.

Many people are shocked to learn that doctors and hospitals frequently fail to disclose important information to patients, sometimes intentionally. Sometimes the failure to disclose info relates to mistakes a doctor or hospital made, sometimes it's about test results, and sometimes doctors are just trying to prevent needless worrying. However, if a patient is harmed or injured as a result of a doctor or hospital's failure to communicate medical information, such as test results, then they may be liable for malpractice.
