Should You Hire an Oilfield Accident Lawyer?

If you were in an accident involving a Permian Basin drilling rig, we highly recommend calling an attorney experienced with the local oil and gas industry. Unlike most other states, you might not have workers’ compensation insurance in Texas. A lawyer will review your situation and explain how to move forward.

Your Options

After getting medical care, learning your legal options is the most important thing you can do. We will review whether your employer provides workers’ comp insurance. If so, we can guide you through making a claim. If not, you may be able to file a lawsuit. We also will investigate liability and determine whether you may file suit against a third party.

Independent Investigation

Another benefit of hiring a law firm experienced with oil drilling accidents is an independent investigation. At Kemmy Law Firm, we are thorough in gathering and reviewing the evidence. We will find out what happened and who is at fault.

Regulatory Violations

During an investigation, we look for any federal or state regulatory violations, such as OSHA violations. If we find any evidence of violations, we inform the appropriate authorities. In some cases, violations can support your compensation claim.

Maximum Compensation

The most significant benefit of hiring an oil rig injury attorney is having a better chance of recovering max compensation, whether through a lawsuit or workers’ comp insurance claim. Kemmy Law Firm will aggressively pursue the full amount possible for your physical, emotional, and financial injuries.

Filing a Lawsuit Against a Negligent Odessa Oil Company

Texas doesn’t require employers to carry workers’ compensation. If you’re hurt in a drilling rig explosion, fire, slip and fall, or other accident, you need to determine whether you are covered immediately. If you have workers’ comp insurance, file a claim right away. Workers’ comp will pay for your medical bills and lost wages.

If you don’t have workers’ comp, talk with a lawyer right away. Our investigation will uncover if a coworker, supervisor, or another employee caused the accident. When that’s the case, we may recommend filing a lawsuit against your employer.

Filing a Third-Party Liability Lawsuit

Our investigation might uncover that someone from outside of your company caused the accident. This is known as a third party, and it could be a property owner, subcontractor, manufacturer, trespasser, or numerous other people or businesses. In this situation, we would guide you through a third-party liability lawsuit, proving your claim, and recovering full and fair compensation.
