We’re on the Job with Refinery and Worksite Injuries

Refinery and chemical plant on-the-job injuries can occur as the result of many things, including poor training, defective equipment, cuts to safety spending and other company actions. Workers should not have to suffer the consequences of poor company decisions.  Companies that are responsible for such injuries should be held accountable. It’s important that they appropriately provide for those injured and the families of those killed.

At the Edwards Law Firm, we know refinery and worksite injury case law. And we work to be sure our clients’ life and recovery needs are fully met. This not only includes appropriate funds to cover loss of income, medical expenses, and on-going care for employees who survived, but fair life benefits for the surviving families of employees who have been killed.

One client was terribly burned in a refinery explosion. Another died when a container lid collapsed at a chemical plant. Both suffered needlessly due to bad decisions made by supervisors or high-ups. Both families got our best legal efforts from day one.  And both received compensation to meet their needs in order to move ahead with their lives – all thanks to our dedicated team. We continue to help many facing this issue, including those who were hurt or killed by:

  • Chemical Spills
  • Crane Accidents
  • Explosions
  • Falls
  • Forklift Accidents
  • Construction Accidents
  • Gas Explosions
  • Scaffolding Accidents
  • Maritime Law Accidents

My client, in honor of her deceased husband, insisted that the corporation responsible for her husband’s death establish a million-dollar endowed chair at Texas A&M Corpus Christi in his name dedicated to industrial safety. What happens in these cases is sometimes beneficial for everybody.
