Danger in the Oil Patch
The oil and gas industries have been booming recently. More wells. Over-stressed equipment. Inadequate safety standards. More employees. New employees possibly not trained or supervised sufficiently. All this leads to potentially more tragic injuries and deaths.
Were you or a family member seriously injured or involved in a fatality accident? Did your employer provide Workers’ Compensation insurance? If not, it’s critical to retain an attorney familiar with this type of claim; one who will fight for you to get financial assistance with your medical care and lost wages. Even if you were treated under Workers’ Compensation, it’s possible you may have additional options through third-party injury claims. To protect your ability to fight for justice, select an attorney before talking to any insurance representative or signing paperwork.
