Oil Field Accident
Oil Field Accident Lawyers in Houston
Represents Victims of Oil Field Accidents in Fort Bend and Harris Counties
While oil field accidents are quite rare, when the catastrophe strikes, the aftermath can be fatal. Usually, victims of oil field accidents can become incapacitated, or live to deal with some severe injuries. In case you get injured from the accident, there’s usually workers’ compensation in place to cover some medical expenses and lost wages.
However, the recovery amount is usually based on a small percentage of one’s income and doesn’t cover the emotional distress the victim undergoes. Again, it doesn’t cover punitive damages, which can total much more than one’s actual loss amount. Because of this, most victims of oil field accidents choose to file a lawsuit to get the maximum possible compensation for their injuries. Usually, a lawsuit achieves much higher compensation compared to workers’ compensation. Even so, don’t try to file a claim on your own. The tables may turn on you.
If you’d like to get the compensation you deserve after an oil field accident, get an attorney to help you file a claim. Apart from offering you legal representation, an oil field accident lawyer can help you to understand your rights and the types of claims available for you.
Yes, you can still be compensated. Take note, however, that employers are not required to carry worker’s compensation insurance. Consequently, they are under strict reporting and disclosure requirement to the government as a result of not carrying worker’s compensation insurance. If your employer does not carry workman’s compensation insurance and you encounter an accident, you should contact an oil field accident lawyer to discuss how you can recover damages.
