Lamothe Law Firm, in association with the Shafner Law Firm of Denver, Colorado, recently filed a lawsuit arising out of a catastrophic tank battery explosion in Mead, Colorado that killed one worker and seriously injured three others.

We are representing two of the injured workers, who sustained extremely serious, permanent injuries, including third-degree burns.

The lawsuit was recently featured in a article published by The Denver Post, “Workers Injured in Fatal Weld County Oil Tank Explosion Sue Site Operators.”

The experienced oil field accident attorneys of Lamothe Law Firm aggressively represent oil field accident victims. We recently settled a different catastrophic oil field accident case for more than $15 million.
