Boardwalk Pipelines Accident Lawyers
Over $10 Billion Won for the Injured. Get Your Free Consultation Today!
A Houston-based energy company, Boardwalk Pipelines operates in the midstream of the natural gas industry by providing transportation and storage services for customers. In 2019, Boardwalk’s interstate pipeline network transported natural gas through nearly 14,000 miles of pipe across the Unites States. These pipelines originate in the Gulf Coast and spread throughout Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois. They also operate underground storage caverns with gas capacity upwards of 205 billion cubic feet and liquid capacity of 31.8 million barrels, located in Louisiana and Texas.
Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP, a subsidiary of Loews Corporation, reported about $8.6 billion in total assets and a gross revenue of $1.3 billion in 2016. While Boardwalk Pipelines is investing $480 million in multiple growth projects to be placed into service in 2022, the company has yet to put effective safety measures in place.

Representing Injured Boardwalk Pipelines Workers
Pipeline work is challenging for many reasons. Workers are at risk during excavation and installation as well as during repairs and even routine inspections or maintenance.
The following are examples of potential causes of pipeline worker injuries:
- Trench collapses
- Exposure to toxins or other hazardous substances
- Falls from heights and slip and fall accidents
- Construction vehicle accidents
- Gas truck accidents
- Struck by heavy pipes, equipment, or other objects
If you were working for Boardwalk Pipelines or were working as a contractor or subcontractor when you were injured, you may be entitled to financial compensation. This can cover your medical treatment, wages you’ve lost, wages you may lose in the future, pain, suffering, and possibly more. Unfortunately, these cases may be complex, and you might find that your employer seems more interested in avoiding liability than helping you in your time of need. Our Boardwalk Pipelines claim lawyers can level the playing field between you and the large companies that are trying to deny you the fair compensation you deserve. In fact, we’ve recovered over $10 billion for people across the country who have suffered harm or loss through no fault of their own.
Pipeline Explosions & Gas Storage Accidents
The oil and gas industry is vital but dangerous. It presents hazards not only to workers within the field but to people across the U.S. whose homes and workplaces are located near any part of the vast network of pipelines that runs throughout the nation. If a company like Boardwalk Pipelines does not take the proper measures to maintain its pipeline system and gas storage facilities, this can have disastrous consequences. Leaks, fires, and explosions can cause catastrophic harm and claim lives.
