Explosion Accident Lawyers
You need the right firm on your side after an explosion accident.
Workplace explosions are an unfortunate possibility for workers in many industries. Plant, refinery, oilfield, oil rig, and pipeline workers are especially vulnerable to accidental explosions in their very dangerous work environments. It is the responsibility of site managers and supervisors to make every effort to prevent these accidents from happening, but unfortunately, explosions do occur and workers may suffer serious, catastrophic injuries or even death as a result.
If you have been hurt in an explosion or if you have lost a loved one in a workplace explosion, you do not have to deal with the aftermath alone. Mounting medical bills, lost wages, or the loss of companionship are often too difficult for people to deal with while they should be recovering or mourning following a serious accident. That’s why you should call Williams Kherkher immediately following a serious accident to make sure that you have a compassionate, experienced legal team on your side to help you protect your livelihood and the well-being of your family.

While it may be tempting to accept money that is offered to you right after an accident (especially as medical bills begin to pile up) it is not wise to accept the offer immediately. Remember that the insurance company’s main goal is to save money, and this means that they are interested in paying as little as possible to make your claim go away. By accepting their offer, you may be leaving a significant amount of money “on the table” and may find yourself unable to fully pay the medical bills, recovery costs, and lasting expenses that you may face following the accident.
As a general rule, you should make sure to visit a doctor first and as soon as possible following a serious workplace accident. Chances are, you may have been sent to the hospital if the explosion caused catastrophic injuries, so you may have immediately received medical attention. Once you are able to evaluate the situation and discuss your legal options, you should contact an attorney. The sooner you start the claims process the better so that your lawyer can handle the legal issues while you focus on recovery.
Burn injuries (especially those caused by an explosion) can have a serious and lasting effect on your ability to work, support your family, and enjoy life. Serious burns often fall under the category of “catastrophic injury” which often involves permanent debilitation and can be life threatening. We have helped individuals who have suffered serious burns pursue their rightful compensation for medical bills, therapy, pain and suffering, and lost wages (both past and future earnings).
By definition, an explosion is an extremely violent occurrence that often results in very serious injuries to individuals nearby. Explosion victims may be forced to deal with a rash of serious injuries, including (but not limited to): severe burns, lacerations, hearing loss, loss of limbs, total or partial paralysis, brain injuries, and exposure to toxic chemicals.
