Mission Oil Field Injury Lawyer

Oil Field working looking at valve

Oil field injuries are dangerous due to the abundance of heavy machinery, toxic substances, and the prevalent risk of explosions and fire. At Hilliard Law, our oilfield accident attorneys know how to fight for you with aggressive and tenacious representation.

As an oil field worker in Mission, you know better than anyone the dangers of the harsh environment. With over 136,000 workers employed in such a dangerous industry, accidents are not uncommon. There are a number of parties that may hold varying degrees of fault if you have been injured in an oil field accident.

If someone else’s negligence caused or contributed to an accident resulting in injuries, we are prepared to fight for the complete compensation you deserve in an oil field accident claim. 

How a Mission Oil Field Injury Lawyer Can Help Your Claim 

Suffering injuries in an oil field accident may leave you overwhelmed by medical expenses, lost wages, or other accident-related losses. You should not have to fight for the monetary compensation you deserve alone. At Hilliard Law, our oil field injury attorneys in Mission will partner with you to understand every detail of your accident in order to build a robust case and offer guidance throughout every step of the legal process. 

The following are some of the many ways our experienced oilfield injury lawyers can help bolster the success of your claim: 

  • Conducting a thorough investigation of your oil field accident to obtain evidence of negligence 
  • Determining the liability of one or more parties 
  • Interviewing eyewitnesses and expert witnesses 
  • Reviewing your medical records
  • Managing your case from initial consultation through the resolution
  • Aggressively advocating for your best interests during compensation negotiations or before a judge and jury in the courtroom 
  • Negotiating with the insurance company on your behalf 
  • Answering all of your legal questions and providing trusted guidance during this challenging time 

The skilled oil field accident lawyers at Hilliard Law are among some of the best and will work to achieve the compensation you deserve. Through an oil field injury claim, you may recover what was lost and hold the at-fault party accountable for the damages you suffered. 

Liability in a Mission Oil Field Accident 

Workers’ compensation is designed to protect oil field workers in the event of an accident by covering medical care expenses and a portion of lost wages while you are recovering. However, it may not cover all expenses if you suffered a catastrophic injury. If your employer provides workers’ compensation, you generally cannot conduct an oil field injury lawsuit. 

However, in Texas, it is not required for an employer to provide workers’ compensation benefits. In this instance, you can seek legal recourse if you suffered injuries due to negligence. An employer has a legal obligation to abide by safety regulations, provide adequate training to workers, conduct regular inspections and maintenance, and provide secure equipment. 

There may be additional parties that caused or contributed to your oil field accident injuries, including the following: 

  • Equipment manufacturer: If you were injured by faulty or defective machinery or equipment, the manufacturer may be held liable. This may include failing to warn customers of issues or if the accident was due to design defects. 
  • Safety inspectors or mechanics: Safety inspectors and mechanics are expected to ensure equipment and machinery are working properly to facilitate a safe work environment. They may be held liable for failing to abide by safety regulations if you were injured due to faulty repairs. 
  • Oil field truck driver: If an oil field truck driver caused an accident due to negligence while on the job site, they may be held liable for a breach of duty of care. 
  • Other oil field workers: If other workers fail to act with reasonable care and cause injuries due to negligence, they may be held responsible for damages. 

If you suffered catastrophic oil field injuries, working with an experienced oilfield injury attorney in Mission to help you obtain the complete recovery you deserve to cover present and future medical expenses, lost wages, and other accident-related losses.
