Texas oil field workers are occasionally exposed to situations that can result in serious and even life-threatening injuries. However, injured workers often feel reluctant to tell their employers about their accidents or injuries, let alone file claims for compensation.
Our years of experience assisting injured oil field workers and their families has given us the experience and industry knowledge to successfully pursue claims for victims after a wide variety of accident types, including:
- Vehicle and equipment collisions – Whether the collision occurred on a job site or on the way to a job site, injured workers deserve compensation for their accident-related expenses.
- Explosions and fires – Oil field work has the inherent risk of explosions and fires. Oil and gas companies are responsible for providing safe work conditions and complying with regulations, but that doesn’t always happen.
- Falls – Some jobs require workers to do their jobs on elevated platforms or scaffolding. If proper safety protocols aren’t followed, they can fall and suffer severe and even fatal injuries.
At Daniel Stark Law, we want all oil field workers throughout the Lone Star State to know that they have rights when they get hurt on the job. Even though some oil and gas companies don’t pay in to the state’s workers’ compensation system, our Texas oil field injury lawyers know how to pursue other avenues of obtaining compensation for victims who were hurt through no fault of their own.
If you or a loved one was hurt in an oil field accident, consider talking to an experienced Texas attorney. At Daniel Stark, we’re available to answer your questions and address any concerns you have about your next steps.
