Pipeline & Refinery Accidents

If you have suffered serious injuries in a pipeline or refinery accident, you are entitled to claim workers’ compensation benefits. You may also be able to obtain compensation for additional wage loss, pain and suffering when the accident was the result of a safety violation or negligence by a third party such as an equipment supplier.

Whatever the particular circumstances of your accident, you should obtain the advice of an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Without strong and effective representation, you may not obtain all of the benefits and compensation to which you are entitled.

Clients seek us out because of our well-established reputation for being highly knowledgeable in the law and determined to help our clients obtain all of the compensation they deserve.

Do You Have a Third-Party Claim?

If your workplace accident was caused by a third party such as a contractor or equipment manufacturer, you have a claim against that party in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. The third-party claim may enable you to obtain significantly more compensation than the workers’ compensation claim alone.

At Boxer & Gerson, LLP, we are experienced and aggressive advocates for our clients. Whether it involves a pipeline injury, a refinery accident or other workplace injury, you can depend on us to do everything we can to help you obtain all the medical care and compensation you need to rebuild your life.
