Oil Rig Accident Lawyers In Midland
Texas personal injury attorneys you can trust
Oil drilling is a big industry in Midland and throughout Texas, but oil rigs are dangerous, and an accident can easily happen that leaves people seriously injured. If you’ve been hurt in an oil rig accident, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer you can trust. Call the personal injury attorneys at Chad Jones Law, P.C.
There are many different types of accidents that can occur on oil rigs, whether they are offshore or on land. Workers can be injured as a result of:
- Falls from heights
- Rig collapse
- Truck accidents
- Defective machines
- Exposure to toxic fumes
When there’s an oil rig accident, workers can suffer a wide range of injuries. They include injuries to the head, neck or back; broken bones; spinal cord injuries; traumatic brain injury; burns and internal injuries. Recovery can take weeks, months or longer. Some injured workers are left with a permanent disability.
Our attorneys hold negligent third parties accountable
After being hurt in a Midland oil rig accident, workers may need surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, home health equipment and months of follow-up appointments with doctors. The medical expenses can add up quickly and soon become overwhelming. While they are unable to work, there is less money coming in.
If your oil rig accident was the result of negligence by a third party (someone other than your employer), you deserve financial compensation for certain damages you suffered. For example, a defective part may have been installed on the rig, leading to your accident. Or a contractor may have failed to take proper safety precautions.
Recovering financial compensation can be difficult. Third parties typically deny any responsibility, and insurance companies try to find ways to pay you as little as possible.
Insurance companies have many tactics they use to try to limit your compensation. They may question the extent of your injuries. They may deny the third party had anything to do with the accident. They may make you a settlement offer soon after you were hurt, but it won’t come close to covering the total damages you have suffered.
The experienced personal injury attorneys at Chad Jones Law fight for injured oil workers and hold negligent third parties accountable.
