Oil Drilling Sites and Oilfield Refinery Accidents Lawyer
Whether in San Antonio, just outside San Antonio, in far west Texas, or all the way down in the Gulf of Mexico, oilfield drilling sites and oilfield refineries can be dangerous places to work. If you or anyone you know is ever involved in an oil-related accident, you need an oil drilling sites and oilfield refinery accident lawyer who knows how the law applies to your particular circumstance, how to navigate the legal system in San Antonio, and how to represent your interests in the face of large companies. Such companies are more interested in making their problems and bad press go away than they are in making sure you receive the medical treatment you need to fully recover from your oil field injury. Our dedicated San Antonio oil drilling site accident attorneys at Carabin & Shaw are prepared to advocate for your right in such situations.
As any good oil drilling sites and oilfield refinery accident lawyer will tell you, the only way to prevent accidents is for employers to have strict procedures and safety guidelines in place and then to just as strictly enforce them. Some examples of these procedures are all work equipment must be properly maintained and inspected for defects and all portable tools must be returned to their original storage location at the end of a shift. Unfortunately these requirements are not present in all oil refineries and the results can lead to accidents, which in some cases lead to catastrophic injuries.
At Carabin & Shaw, our attorneys have decades of experience representing clients whose injuries could be directly traced back to a failure to either have a policy in place or to properly enforce a policy already in place. This means larger amounts of compensation, especially when the improper enforcement of a policy can be linked to equally improper training or irresponsible adherence to safety standards set in place by the company itself.
Some of the most common oil refinery accidents involve explosions, falls, fires, and electrocution, and they can all occur without warning. If you have suffered an accident you may be entitled to pursue more than just a workers' compensation claim. The severity of your injuries can increase the scope of your claim to include not only present, but future pain and suffering—let the attorneys at Carabin & Shaw protect your rights and help you file a personal injury claim.
