Rio Grande Valley Burn Injury Attorneys
Cases that involve fires and explosions at oil refineries result in not only workers' compensation claims, but also third-party lawsuits. We take immediate action upon representing a case. Refinery owners may cover their tracks when a worker or workers get injured. Our attorneys move quickly to secure a restraining order to prevent the refinery from making repairs or modifications. We want to stop the company from destroying evidence and cleaning up the mess that left the employee injured.
Investigators visit the accident site to help us build a fact-based claim. Upon filing a lawsuit, we identify fault through discovery, OSHA reports, interrogatories and depositions. Because of our past experience litigating refinery explosions that caused burns and toxic emissions, we can handle the complexities and overcome the hurdles that the opposing side often presents in these types of cases.
