Working to Obtain Fair Compensation For Construction And Petrochemical Accident Victims

Construction work is very physically demanding. There are often many people on a construction site at one time. The large amount of people, combined with equipment, and potential hazards in the area, can be a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately in some jobs, the project has to be finished on time, so the work is rushed and safety is often overlooked.

Working in refineries and petrochemical plants can be just as hazardous.

If you were injured while working on a construction or petrochemical project, it’s important that you have an experienced attorney who will work to obtain the maximum recovery allowable under the law to help you pay for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and disability damages if you missed work due to injuries.
