Why Kemmy Law Firm Is Right for You
It can be tough finding the right law firm after a drilling rig accident in the Permian Basin. Many firms advertise as representing oilfield workers. But at Kemmy Law Firm, we are more than personal injury or wrongful death attorneys. We are a family, and we treat each client who walks through our doors like we do our relatives. You will always be treated with compassion and respect and never made to feel like just another case file.
We also stand out through our trial experience. We are highly experienced trial lawyers who are never afraid to take a case before a judge or jury. Though many drilling accident claims are resolved without going to trial, we believe in always being prepared for that possibility. It is through our extensive preparation that we can negotiate significant settlements for our clients. In the past two years, we’ve recovered over $50 million in settlements and verdicts.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Do After an Oilfield Accident?
You should get medical treatment immediately after the accident. Then, report the accident to your supervisor and inform them of your injuries. Gather photos and videos if you can as this could strengthen your injury claim.
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim in New Mexico?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New Mexico is three years. Since this is a work injury, you will have to file a workers’ compensation claim with your employer. You must notify your employer of the accident or injury within 15 days and complete a Notice of Accident form.
How Much Compensation Can I Receive in My Settlement?
The compensation you receive varies on a case-by-case basis. Oilfield accidents are especially devastating, and the injuries you experienced might require ongoing care, which results in medical bills and other expenses, not to mention non-economic damages like pain and suffering. Essentially, the more damages you incurred from your accident; the more compensation you might receive.
What Are the Worst Oilfield Accidents?
Oilfield accidents occur all over the world, and they range in severity. Deepwater Horizon is the most infamous oilfield accident and remains as being the largest oil spill in the history of marine oil drilling operations. There are countless other disasters that have left a significant impact on those involved and their families, such as Piper Alpha, Ocean Ranger, and Bohai 2 to name a few.
