As any Texan knows, oil and gas is the backbone of our state. While the many plants and refineries are a valuable part of the state’s economy, they are also the source of many accidents. If you or a loved one was injured in a plant or refinery accident, or if you lost a loved one in a fatal plant or refinery accident, the attorneys of Arthur J. Gonzalez P.C. may be able to help you get the financial compensation you need. We have been representing injured plant and refinery workers throughout Texas for many years and have the experience it takes to help you get the treatment you deserve.
If you or a loved one works in the oil/gas or manufacturing industry, you are probably aware of the inherent risk involved in the job. Falling off an oil or gas refinery (or becoming entangled in factory machinery) can cause immediate injuries, such as broken legs, broken backs, amputations or death. Exposure to dangerous chemicals and gases can cause illnesses that are not apparent for months or years. People who clean gas lines are often exposed to unsafe chemicals, substances that could cause leukemia or other types of cancer far into the future.
Regardless of the type of injury, we know there are numerous things that must be addressed. While we do not handle worker’s compensation matters, we can help if your employer does not carry worker’s compensation insurance, or where the injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party (not your employer or co-worker). We can also refer you to some of the best workers compensation lawyers in Texas.
When clients contact us, we help them resolve all legal aspects of their case, including:
- Finding medical treatment
- Working with the insurance company to seek an adequate coverage of your injuries and expenses
- Awarding a financial settlement
If you or a loved one suffered injuries due to unsafe work conditions, or if you lost a loved one in a fatal plant or refinery accident, call us. We can help you obtain the financial compensation you need to move forward.
