Oil workers may often need to climb great heights or work on elevated platforms on derricks and rigs. Any slip in attention or safety equipment can cause a fall and a serious injury. In other circumstances, equipment and tools can be dropped on unsuspecting workers, usually resulting in significant injuries and even deaths.
In these situations, our lawyers have fought on behalf of oil field workers and their families to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and emotional suffering. Workers’ compensation isn’t always your only recourse. You may be entitled to more significant compensation.
Often, there may be someone or something else besides your company and coworkers responsible for the injury, whether it’s unsafe equipment or third party individuals. With so many operators and contractors working in the oilfields, we can help discern who is at fault and how to best proceed in pursuing your claim.
Attorney Dave Schweigert grew up in the region and knows the people and terrain firsthand, and has the experience to pursue your claim to completion.
