Although oil and gas refineries rank fairly high in terms of general workplace safety, any accident tends to be severe or fatal. Our lawyers can help you pursue your rights for permanent partial or total disability under the workers' compensation system, or investigate the possibility of a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent vendor, supplier, contractor or manufacturer. We represent clients on refinery accident claims involving:
- Falls from heights
- Burns or scalding injuries related to pipe-bleeding operations
- Injuries caused by blows from loose chains, insecure superstructure components or other falling objects
- Injuries caused by fire or explosion
- Injuries related to toxic exposure
- Injuries related to stand-down, repair or decommissioning operations
Vincent Scotto has more than 30 years of experience with the investigation and litigation of severe workplace accident claims. In some cases, workers' compensation will be your exclusive remedy for a period of disability resulting from an injury at work. In other situations, you will be able to pursue additional damages for negligence against a defendant unrelated to your employer.
Our law firm's decades of experience with accident litigation can protect you from accepting less than what you are entitled to receive on an injury claim, whether it involves brain trauma, severe burns, a back or spinal cord injury, an occupational illness or a chronic medical condition. Our attention to detail with the documentation of damages claims can represent a significant advantage for our clients.
