In addition to being undefeated, our Plant and Refinery Explosions Lawyers have won over $1 Billion on behalf of workers injured or killed in connection with every major plant and pipeline explosion in recent history—including over $150 million for injured workers in 2018 alone.
Our experience, however, extends beyond Louisiana and across the United States, where we've successfully represented over 1,000 workers injured or tragically killed in the most catastrophic refinery, pipeline and workplace distaster in the past 15 years, including the Williams Geismar explosion, the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion, the BP Texas City explosion, the International Paper explosion in Vicksburg, MS, and the Imperial Sugar explosion in Savannah, Georgia.
Because of our experience—and the unprecedented recoveries that we've obtained for our clients and their families—the media regularly turns to our Plant and Pipeline Explosion Lawyers for insight after industrial explosions and workplace disasters across the United States.
Important Information Following a Plant, Refinery or Pipeline Explosion
When the company or its insurance adjusters (or claims reps) visit you in the hospital, they'll assure you that they’re going to take care of you and your family and that you have nothing to worry about. But while you’re in the hospital recovering, the company and its lawyers will do whatever possible to prevent you from being able to recover your past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and any other damages, like pain and suffering and physical disfigurement, from the company through a lawsuit.
Unless you have an experienced lawyer to fight back, the company’s lawyers WILL limit your damages to your weekly comp benefits (which typically range from $200 to $500). These trivial payments last until the company sends you in to see the company’s doctors, who will discount your injuries and claim that you’re able to return to work before you’re fully recovered. The reason the company doctors do this is because, under workers comp laws, the company is only responsible for paying you benefits until one of the company’s doctors state that you’ve reached “Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI).” Once you’re at MMI, the company has no further obligation to pay you benefits, cover your medical costs, or otherwise compensate you for your injuries.
This is what Williams tried to do with every one of our 65 clients after the Geismar explosion. We successfully defeated their attempts, however, including their appeals to the Louisiana Supreme Court, which enabled our Plant Explosion Lawyers to reach settlements with Williams that ensure that our clients will have the financial resources to care for themselves and their families for the rest of their lives.
