Experienced Texas Attorney Providing Service Nationwide
Oil and gas production in the United States has become increasingly competitive. The limited amount of resources has caused a surge in production costs. Many oil drilling companies have cut corners and pushed workers into overtime in an effort to produce more. Unfortunately, many people have suffered serious and life-threatening injuries at the expenses of profit margins.
If you have been injured, or if a loved one was killed while working in an oil field, you should talk to an attorney about your legal options. Any medical expenses will be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation, even if your employer was not at fault. Often, the amount of workers’ compensation is simply not enough.
At the Dean Law Firm, we are committed to helping oil field accident victims secure compensation beyond a workers’ compensation claim. Contact an oil field accident lawyer today to put our experience advocating for injured workers and their families to work for you.
Handling Third-Party Personal Injury Claims for Injured Oil Field Workers
Oil field production is inherently dangerous. However, the risk of oil field accidents increases when safety standards and industry regulations are ignored. Many crews often work simultaneously on oil fields, adding to the complexity of oil field accident litigation. The cause of an accident may initially be unclear.
If you or your loved one was in an oil field accident, we will conduct a thorough investigation to determine if a third party’s negligent actions ultimately caused the accident. We are committed to helping you pursue a personal injury claim beyond the workers’ compensation you are entitled to. We know how to prove fault against manufacturers, contractors or subcontractors for overlooking safety standards and causing:
- Rig collapses
- Falls from rigs and equipment
- Equipment failures and defective products
- Well blowouts
- Pipeline explosions and fires
Our top priority is to help you obtain maximum compensation for any current and long-term medical expenses associated with the oil rig injury you have endured. Houston personal injury lawyer Christopher Dean also has experience seeking compensation for any lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages associated with the oil field accident.
