It happens every single day in refineries across the nation. An accident occurs due to hazardous work conditions, failed safety checks, or dangerous machinery, and a worker suffers a serious injury as a result. Rather than rush to the individual’s assistance, the corporate machine and its high-powered attorneys push for a “quick and cheap” settlement of the injured person’s claim to save themselves money.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a refinery accident, there is one name in the Houston area you can truly trust, and that name is Williams Kherkher.

How We Can Help

Few Law Firms Have the Resources to Battle Oil Companies. We Do.

The big oil companies typically have a team of insurance employees on their side. That’s why you need a firm with the experience and resources to take them on and fight for what you are rightfully owed. Our track record of winning verdicts and billions of dollars recovered on behalf of our clients strikes fear into the large corporation that is seeking to cheat you out of the money you deserve following an accident. Our passion for our clients and their families is evident in everything we do, and our pursuit of fairness is unrivaled. We will not rest until injured refinery workers receive the fair and just compensation deserved for their injuries.

Factory workers and industrial plant employees are exposed to potential hazards in their daily work environment. With heavy machinery, hazardous materials, and constant motion around them, it is no wonder that so many workers are seriously injured on the job. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a factory, plant, or offshore refinery, know that there is a team of committed and compassionate attorneys standing by to help you pursue justice and put the pieces of your life back together. At Williams Kherkher, we have the experience and the resources to make sure you are made whole again after a serious accident.

When the unthinkable happens and you are injured on the job, know that you have rights and that justice is available to you. Too many workers fail to report accidents or feel that they have no legal recourse against their employer. Even more industrial workers sign away their claims when pushed by insurance companies who are only looking to make the case go away, and they often find that the amounts they were offered are not enough to cover their mounting medical bills and expenses. Don’t let this happen to you. There is one name you can truly trust, and that name is Williams Kherkher.

Plant & Refinery Accident FAQs

We strongly urge you to contact us for answers to these questions and help with your situation, but in the meantime, we hope that these frequently asked questions will give you some guidance.

Refinery managers have a duty to provide a safe working environment for each and every one of their employees. If they fail to properly maintain your workspace and equipment, or if they fail to follow federally mandated safety procedures, and you are injured as a result, you may be able to hold them accountable. If you were hurt on the job, it is likely our employer failed to follow the proper procedures to keep you safe.

Our attorneys have extensive experience handling refinery accident claims. While fighting on behalf of injured workers, we have seen every trick and tactic in the insurance company’s playbook, and we are committed to helping you fight back against an employer who is seeking to save themselves money rather than help you with medical bills and recovery. Let us put our experience to work for you.

Chances are your accident was not entirely your fault. Workers often fault themselves in the event of an accident, but many do not realize that unsafe work conditions, improper safety procedures, and other factors played a major role in the incident. That’s why it is so important to contact an attorney who understands workplace accidents (especially in refineries) to determine the exact cause and who is truly responsible for your injuries.

The first thing you should do if you have been hurt on the job is to report the accident to your supervisor immediately and then seek medical assistance. Too many employees fail to report workplace accidents and this failure often leads to dismissed claims down the road. You may report the incident orally or in writing, but make sure to do so in order to maintain your case. This does not mean that you have to speak to the insurance company however. You should not discuss the case with insurance adjusters until you have retained the trusted counsel of an experienced industrial accident attorney.

In the event of an injury at work, workers usually can file workers’ compensation claim through their employer’s insurance (unless their employer is a “non-subscriber, in which case a negligence claim may be the best course of action). If the injury was caused by defective or faulty machinery, however, the injured worker may be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the manufacturer.
