Oilfield workers throughout the Rio Grande Valley face some of the most dangerous working conditions in the United States today. The McAllen personal injury attorneys
at Moore Law Firm have over 50 years of combined experience helping workers injured on oilfields recover from their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Oilfield accidents are often the result of companies putting profit before worker safety. Many of these accidents could have been avoided had equipment been maintained and proper safety regulations followed. Common causes of injuries on oilfields include:
• Valve blowouts
• Falling debris
• Shrapnel from drill bits
• Improperly maintained or operated heavy equipment
• Exposure to fumes
• Inadequate safeguards
There can be any number of liable parties when these accidents occur. Independent contractors who install or maintain equipment may be responsible. The company in charge of the oilfield may be responsible. In some cases, these accidents occur while under government oversight, making government entities responsible as well.
Proving negligence in these cases can be incredibly difficult. With so many potentially responsible parties, you may face red tape and serious delays as insurance companies battle over who to blame. Even when liability is placed, the settlement offered is almost always inadequate to cover all of your losses.
Only by contacting an experienced personal injury attorney can you ensure that the negligent party is held responsible. The attorneys at Moore Law Firm can help you cut through the red tape, identify the responsible party, and get the full compensation you deserve.
