Helping Workers Injured in Oil and Gas Accidents
Oil drilling rig explosions, gas pipeline explosions, refinery accidents and other incidents that occur on oil and gas fields can result in catastrophic injuries or even death. At Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend, we have witnessed the devastating consequences these injuries can have on individuals and their families, as well as the tragedy brought on by deaths related to petrochemical and refinery accidents.
Injured workers may be covered by workers' compensation. However, many injuries and deaths are caused by the negligence of contractors. For instance, if you were injured due to the negligence of another company or one of its employees, you are entitled to recover compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
Since our firm was established in 1951, our oil well injury attorneys have spent decades defending the rights of workers injured in petrochemical and refinery accidents.
