Oil Field Accident Victims Have the Right to Compensation

Have you or a loved one been injured in an oil field accident? Oil drilling platforms and similar oil industry workplaces can be extremely dangerous. Even a seemingly minor safety lapse can lead to a serious accident and injury. Workers may fall off oil platforms. They may be struck by a piece of falling equipment at a drilling site. They may slip and fall on an object left on a platform or walkway. These injured workers have more options than they may know.

Many victims of oil field accidents suffer from long term effects of their injuries. This can involve long term hospital stays, extensive rehabilitation and long term absence from family while they recuperate. An experienced oil field injury lawyer or oil field accident attorney can help the victim by securing awards and settlements to assist in covering extensive medical bills, helping families cope with mounting bills and avoid missing important payments.

Workers' Compensation Is Not the Only Remedy for Injured Oil Workers

People often believe that workers' compensation is the only remedy that work injury victims, including injured oil field workers, can seek. This is not true. At drilling sites and elsewhere, there are often a variety of crews at work, each under a different employer. When an accident is caused by someone other than the victim's employer, the victim may be able to pursue a personal injury claim in addition to the workers' comp claim. This opens up more doors to ensure that compensation covers medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.
