There’s no denying that the booming oil industry has brought thousands of jobs to Texas workers over the years. Now with an increased interest in hydraulic fracking, even more Texans are making a good living off the land, and they earn every penny they make. Oil work is hard and dangerous, demanding a strong back and a stronger resolve. Every year, thousands of people are injured on rigs at sea and on land, compromising their ability to provide for their families.
Oil companies make billions every year from the skilled work their employees provide. The least they can do is stand behind those hardworking folks when an on-the-job accident takes them out of the game. Unfortunately, sometimes a worker’s contributions to the company are forgotten when it comes to compensating them for their injuries. If that’s happened to you, it’s important that you call an experienced attorney who knows your rights as an oil worker and will fight to get you the money you deserve.
At Daniel Stark, we’ve helped drillers, haulers, machine operators, oil pumpers, and more after an oil field accident. Each one knew right from their initial free consultation that they had rights and that we were going to do our best to protect them. If you’ve been injured in an oil field accident, don’t assume you’ll automatically get the compensation you deserve. Call an experienced lawyer instead. You’ll be glad you did.
