Representing Injured Workers and Residents

There is simply no place or room for negligent behavior or activity on a gas and oil search or extraction site. This type of work usually involves operating heavy equipment, working with explosive gases, and fast paced work. Just a single simple safety lapse often results in a death or devastating injury.

Our experienced lawyers always understand the difficult challenges that you and your loved ones face after someone suffers an accident while working. While it is true that workers' compensation insurance pays you or your family benefits no matter whose fault caused the injury, those benefits can be limited and will usually not cover each and every thing you or your family have lost. You may well be due additional compensation when third parties (persons and/or companies who are not your statutory employer) were at fault in causing your injury. Some examples of this include suppliers, contractors, and especially equipment manufacturers who make the machines you use on the job. Our experienced lawyers will always carefully review all circumstances of your accident and, in detail, explain your all of your legal options. If your statutory employer does not have workers' compensation, our attorneys can, and frequently do, file personal injury lawsuits employers.

In addition to those who have been injured, our legal team represents any family members of people who die following and accident in the oil production business. Workers' compensation insurance generally doesn’t go very far in meeting a family's financial needs after a breadwinner’s death. Our legal team can help you and your family deal with the financial and legal issues you both face so that everyone can concentrate fully on healing the family.

There are various types of injuries you can suffer when working in the oil fields. Our attorneys have years of experience dealing with all of the following types:

  • Oil field workers who suffer burn injuries: Few injuries are more painful for a victim than serious burns. Depending upon the details surrounding your case, there may be options well beyond just workers' compensation insurance to assist you in recovering.
  • Oil field truck accidents: In the oil fields a tremendous amount of material support is required that is brought in by truck to work sites. These trucks create heavy traffic and increased accidents. Our attorneys represent the truck drivers as well as residents who get injured.
