PBF Energy Accident Attorneys

Choose a National Leader in Plant & Refinery Accident Cases

Headquartered in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey, PBF Energy is one of the largest U.S. refiners and suppliers of unbranded transportation fuel, lubricants, heating oils, and other petroleum products. The company was formed in 2008 and has experienced significant growth since, acquiring multiple refineries and expanding production capacity as a result. As of 2019, PBF Energy had 3,442 employees.

Unfortunately, PBF Energy does not have a clean safety record. In 2020, a fire at the PBF Energy refinery in Delaware City critically injured 2 workers. This was the third fire in less than two years at the same facility. In 2015, an accident at the PBF Energy refinery in Paulsboro, New Jersey claimed a worker’s life when an air compressor line broke and struck him as he was sandblasting a tank.

If you work for PBF Energy, you have rights if you’re injured on the job. If a family member lost their life while working at a PBF Energy refinery, you also have rights. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits or may have grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against any individual or company that contributed to your injuries or loss. These cases are complicated, however, so it’s important to talk to an attorney about your options.
