Serious Legal Representation for Serious Injuries
A catastrophic injury resulting from an oil refinery accident will have a life-changing impact on the injured worker and family members. Compensation for these injuries needs to accurately reflect their true cost to the victim over a lifetime. This can amount to a great deal of money. Recognizing that, corporate lawyers and insurers use two common tactics. The first is to make a low-ball settlement offer soon after the accident in the hope that the injured person or their family will want to put the whole thing behind them. The second is to avoid responsibility altogether by shifting the blame for the accident on the conduct of the injured person or their co-workers.
