They do it at the peril of oil field workers like you.

We are ready to start helping you today.

Full Compensation is Important

Injured oil field workers can easily lose their livelihood. If your injuries do not prevent you from going back to work, they may still prevent you from performing the type of work that you were doing before your accident or from earning as much as you did before. When someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing caused your accident, it is only fair that they pay so that you and your family are not saddled with the financial burden. Likewise, when a defective piece of machinery or equipment is the cause of your injuries, you and your family deserve full compensation.

Oil field accident injuries are often severe or fatal and can include:

  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Severe burns
  • Chemical burns
  • Respiratory injury
  • Crush injuries
  • Organ damage or loss
  • Amputations
  • Vision loss
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Paralysis
