Oilfield & Oil Rig Accident Lawsuits
As anyone that works in the oilfield, drilling wells, doing work-overs, fracking, or working on offshore oil rigs and, jack ups and platforms, the oil drilling business is dangerous. Due to the money and profits involved, many oilfield operators cut corners, overlook safety issues and push their workers beyond their safe limits and when that happens, serious injuries and deaths are not far behind. While oil rigs mechanically are safer than they were 20 years ago, the owners, subs and operators sometime are not safer. When safety is not involved in every aspect of the oil drilling and exploration process, then often time preventable accidents & deaths occur.

If you have been or a loved one have been seriously injured in the oilfield or have lost a family member in wrongful death oilfield accident, you need to know your rights. The oilfield employer may not want you to pursue litigation, or inform you that the workers compensation system is the only source of compensation for the losses resulting from your injury. In many instances, this simply is not true. If your accident was caused by in whole or in part by the negligent, reckless or careless conduct on the part of an operator, owner, contractor, subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, maintenance company, or other third (3rd) party entity, you may be entitled to a third party lawsuit for further compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, and pain and suffering that resulted from your injury. Other 3rd party lawsuit damages for wrongful death beneficiaries may include medical and funeral expenses and legal monetary damages for lost wages in the future, loss of companionship, loss of support and for the pain and suffering and mental anguish resulting from the death of your loved one killed in the oil patch or offshore. By filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, we can help collect these additional moneys & legal damages and remedies that are not covered under the workers compensation system.
