There is no question that refinery workers engage in dangerous job duties. The news often reports oil refinery explosions, toxic fumes or other catastrophes that can lead to injury and death of workers in the area.
In some cases, these injuries could have been prevented, which is why if you are a refinery worker who has been injured on the job, you need to contact Lundy Law, refinery worker injury attorneys in Pennsylvania.
When a refinery worker is injured on the job, Pennsylvania law requires that their employer provide them with workers compensation that will cover medical expenses and lost wages. However, because many refinery accidents are due to negligence, either because a company has cut corners or because they have ignored safety regulations, employees may also be eligible for personal injury claims.
If the injuries are severe enough, you may also be eligible for Social Security Disability. In order to determine whether you are eligible for anything more than workers’ compensation, contact the refinery worker injury attorneys in Pennsylvania at Lundy Law.
There are several refineries in the area we represent. If you have been injured at any of the following refineries, we may be able to assist you in obtaining the benefits you are entitled to under the law:
Calumet Penreco Karns Refinery
Marcus Hook – Sunoco – Refinery
We have helped people just like you get the benefits they are entitled to under the law.
Refinery employees are not the only people who may be injured by refineries. Many of the refineries in Pennsylvania use toxic chemicals, such as hydrofluoric acid, which present health risks to as many as four million people. If you have been diagnosed with an illness that can be linked to chemicals used at a refinery near your home or workplace, you may be eligible for a personal injury claim.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a refinery worker, or if you live near a refinery and have suffered illness, you may be eligible for a claim. Contact the refinery worker injury attorneys at Lundy Law to learn whether you are eligible for a workers compensation or personal injury claim.
