Looking up at oil rig

Do You Need a Permian Basin Injury Lawyer?

Driving down the dusty roads and along US-285, drivers notice an ever-growing stream of large trucks and vehicles as they pass oilfields and pumpjacks. But as necessary as West Texas and Southwestern New Mexico are to oil production, the area can feel remote if you’re seriously injured and looking for help.

When you consider that nearly 20% of the country lives in rural areas, but only 2% of attorneys practice in rural areas or small towns, the need for a quality Permian Basin personal injury lawyer is a genuine concern. This is especially true if you’re among the thousands of people in the area who find themselves injured in an accident or grieving a tragic loss without knowing where to turn.

The Kemmy Law Firm wants to be part of the solution.

With over five decades of experience and millions of dollars recovered, our family-run personal injury firm is here to meet the legal needs of people across the entire Permian Basin region. From our offices in Odessa, Texas; San Antonio, Texas; and Hobbs, New Mexico, we make getting the representation you deserve after an accident in cities like Big Spring, Carlsbad, Andrews, Lamesa, Pecos, Loving, Seminole, Jal, and others more convenient than ever.

Find the Right Lawyer for You

If you or a loved one is seriously hurt in something like a car crash or work-related accident in a Permian Basin oilfield, you may be far from home. You could be in a hospital you aren’t familiar with or struggling to understand the insurance claim process so you can get your bills paid.

You know you should discuss your case with a lawyer, but searching for a “personal injury law firm near me” may not provide the answers you expect.

The idea of speaking with a personal injury lawyer can be scary. But getting a lawyer involved early increases the odds of getting all the compensation you are entitled to in less time than if you were on your own.

We’re here to help recover what was lost.

We know you’re dealing with a lot. That’s why we try to relieve as much financial risk as possible. We handle all personal injury cases with no upfront costs, and you won’t owe us anything unless you recover compensation.

We’ll also discuss your case in person, at your home, in the hospital, or over the phone – whatever makes sense for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim in Texas?

You have two years to file a personal injury claim in Texas. If the statute of limitations expires, you lose your opportunity to file a claim against the at-fault party. You have 30 days to notify your employer if you are filing a workers’ compensation claim.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Law firms use many different methods to bill their clients that might include upfront costs. However, many personal injury firms use a contingency fee pay structure. This means you pay no upfront costs, and the firm takes a percentage of the final settlement. In other words, you owe nothing unless the firm wins your claim.

How Much Compensation Can You Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?

The compensation you could recover in a personal injury claim varies depending on the damages you suffered and how they impacted your life. A personal injury lawyer will consider all the ways your life has been affected by your injuries, which includes the physical pain and mental suffering your accident caused.

What to Do After You Suffer a Personal Injury

You should seek medical care immediately even if you feel fine after your injury. Medical records are valuable to your claim. Then, you should contact an attorney so they can get started building your case and identify the parties at fault. Gathering photos, videos, and other pieces of evidence will help improve your chances of receiving a substantial settlement.
