Legal Guidance For Injured Oil And Gas Workers In Texas
Drilling for oil and using hydraulic fracking for natural gas are good jobs in some ways, but they are also very dangerous. Workers who are injured in drilling and fracking jobs may need a lawyer’s help to get the compensation they need for medical expenses, lost wages and related losses.
At the Dallas law office of Jerry D. Andrews, we represent injured oil and gas workers in Texas. Mr. Andrews is a board-certified attorney in personal injury law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He has the skill and experience to determine who is liable for your injuries. If there is more than one liable party, he will seek compensation from all of them.
Helping You Get The Compensation You Need
There are many ways that workers can be injured on oil and gas sites, but a few of the most common include:
- Oil and gas vehicle accidents
- Defective equipment
- Drilling accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Accidents during drill site construction
Depending on the details of your accident, you may be able to collect workers’ compensation benefits as well as damages from a negligent third party. We will review your claim and discuss whether this is an option for you.
Gas and oil field accidents can lead to serious or fatal injuries, including amputations, burns, broken bones, head injuries and spinal cord injuries. The loss of sight or hearing is also possible. These types of injuries may result in temporary or permanent disability or wrongful death. You and your family will need considerable financial compensation to pay the bills and move forward.
