Refinery accidents can be related to a wide range of occurrences, and each situation is different. Explosions, gas and chemical spills, fire and other accidents all pose extreme hazards for people working at refineries. Refineries retain considerable control over safety in refineries. Work cannot generally proceed in the absence of a permit. When dangerous conditions cause injury, the refinery operator may be responsible for a failure to recognize a particular hazard in the permitting process. No matter what your situation, our law firm has the capacity to handle it.

Experienced Alameda County Attorneys Representing Burn Injury Victims
When explosions or fires occur at refineries, burns are some of the most common injuries refinery accident victims experience. In order to recover full and fair compensation for these serious injuries, plaintiffs’ lawyers must have a working knowledge of the petrochemical industry and how refineries operate, as well as the laws and regulations that apply to the oil and gas industries.
As experienced lawyers who have handled a broad spectrum of refinery work injury cases in Martinez and Benicia, we are well-prepared for the task. This is especially important because medical care costs for burn injuries are among the more expensive medical injuries to treat.
Compensation For Costs Related To The Injury
Our attorneys help clients recover compensation for medical bills and care costs, lost wage-earning capacity, pain and suffering, mental harm, disfigurement, physical impairment, loss of companionship and other consequences of their injuries.
We know that holding negligent companies accountable is a critical part of helping our clients move forward with their lives.
