How an Oil Field Injury Lawyer in El Paso, TX Can Help Your Claim 

In the aftermath of an oil field injury, you should not have to fight for justice alone. It is essential to partner with an experienced oil injury lawyer in El Paso who understands your situation and provides the personalized legal guidance you need to obtain the compensation you deserve. At Hilliard Law, we can help your claim in the following ways to bolster your chances of success: 

  • Conducting a thorough investigation of your oil field accident 
  • Determining the liability of one or more parties 
  • Interviewing eyewitnesses and expert witnesses 
  • Reviewing your medical records
  • Managing your case from initial consultation to the resolution
  • Advocating for your best interests during insurance negotiations or before a judge and jury in the courtroom 
  • Providing trusted guidance throughout the legal process during this challenging time 

Many oil field injuries are catastrophic, leading to physical disabilities or even wrongful death. The skilled attorneys at Hilliard Law are well-versed in building a robust claim to hold the negligent parties accountable so that you may focus on healing. 

Liability in a Texas Oil Field Injury Accident 

An employer must abide by federal and state safety regulations, provide proper training, conduct regular inspections and maintenance, and provide secure equipment. If they fail to do this, they may be held liable for your oil field injuries.

In an oil field injury claim, there may be multiple parties liable for accident injuries, including the following: 

  • Oil company or oil company owner 
  • Equipment manufacturer
  • Safety inspectors or mechanics
  • Supply companies 
  • Oil field truck driver
  • Oil field workers
  • Machine or drilling operators 
  • Well exploration companies 
  • Contractors 
  • Regulatory agencies 

You may believe that an oil field company can be trusted to produce accurate investigation results. However, the company’s main objective is to protect its profits first and foremost, which may mean avoiding liability for the injuries you have suffered.

No matter how or where your accident occurred on an oil field, the skilled lawyers at HMG know how to extensively investigate the incident to identify liability. We will fight to protect your rights. We are not afraid to stand up to large entities, such as oil companies, meaning we will be with you every step of the way to get you the compensation you deserve.

Recoverable Compensation in a Texas Oil Field Injury Claim

Depending on the unique circumstances of your oil field accident and the extent of your injuries, you may be eligible to recover compensatory damages in a successful claim. At HMG, we will partner with you to calculate the approximate value of your claim and fight for the complete compensation you deserve. 

Recoverable compensation may include the following depending on your claim: 

  • Medical expenses 
  • Lost wages 
  • Reduced earning potential
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Emotional distress 
  • Diminished quality of life 
  • Disability, scarring, disfigurement, or impairment 
  • Punitive damages 

Financial, physical, and emotional losses can pile up, especially if you are unable to return to work due to your injuries. Our El Paso oil field accident attorneys have recovered millions for victims affected by negligence, and are prepared to fight for you at every step of the legal process.
