The Importance of Proper Representation in Refinery Accident Lawsuits
The proper medical treatment for many oil refinery injuries is not quick or inexpensive. Treatment for third-degree burns can be lengthy and difficult, and the rehabilitation required following a spinal cord injury or loss of a limb is an ongoing process. If you’ve been injured for any reason while working at a refinery, you may be entitled to a wide range of damages.
This can include:
- Medical expenses (including current and future costs associated with your injury)
- Lost income due to your inability to work; mental anguish and emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
If someone you love and rely on has been killed in a refinery accident, a wrongful death suit can help provide a stable future and a degree of comfort.
However, prevailing in a refinery accident lawsuit depends on a number of factors. Your refinery accident attorney should have deep and long experience working with cases involving refineries and petroleum plants to ensure they understand the technical nuances of such cases. The investigative and analytic process can be long, and having a lawyer on your side who has a proven track record of achieving seizable recoveries for refinery accident victims can increase your chances of getting the compensation that you deserve. At the Cesar Ornelas Law Firm, we have the experienced attorneys required to protect your rights as a refinery accident victim.
