If you have been injured in a serious accident while working in the oilfield, you may be entitled to file a claim for financial compensation. For instance, if you suffered serious burns, a concussion, or another injury due to an oilfield explosion, you should talk to a personal injury attorney in the Houston area. The same is true if your family has lost a loved one in an industrial accident of this type.
It is important to consult with a personal injury lawyer as early as possible after such an accident, in order to learn whether you have grounds for legal action and to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the personal injury or wrongful death claims process.
You cannot count on your employer and the insurance company, unfortunately, to look out for your best interests. After all, their primary concern is to minimize their own losses by avoiding liability to pay you for your claim.
Before taking any further action on the case, I can review the situation and advise you of the legal options that may be available to you. If you or a loved one has suffered from an oilfield accident, please contact The Fostel Law Firm at 432-606-8770 or fill out the contact form below.
