A High-Demand Industry With High-Risk Accidents
While the increased demand for oil and natural gas has created an economic boost for many in the Permian Basin, this additional pressure on companies in the oil and gas industry has led to many companies adopting unsafe practices. Inexperienced or improperly trained workers, unsafe equipment and poor practices can create an unsafe environment for anyone on these work sites, and accidents on the oil field can be life-altering or even deadly.
When you or a loved one has been injured in an oil field accident, you don’t have to fight alone. At James F. Perrin, PLLC, our founding attorney has years of experience representing injury victims in eight different states. From our office in Lubbock, Texas, we will help you seek justice and the support you need to recover after an accident.
Catastrophic Oil Field Injuries
Blowouts, pipeline explosions and other well site accidents can cause severe injuries, placing employees and others at the accident site at great risk. Oil field accidents can result in:
- Crush injuries
- Injuries requiring amputations
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Wrongful death
You may be entitled to compensation beyond workers’ comp if you were injured by an employee of another company working at the site, or by an entity that is not your direct employer. For example, you might have been injured by an oil delivery truck, or by equipment that was faulty due to the negligence of the manufacturer.
No matter what the cause of your injury, you deserve to have the financial and medical support you need in the aftermath of your accident. You may be entitled to financial compensation to cover the cost of medical treatment, wages lost due to the inability to work, future medical care for your long-term injuries, and the pain and suffering you have experienced. An attorney can help you pursue the compensation you are due.
