Texas Oil Field Injury Lawyers
While the oil and natural gas industries in Texas do provide workers with steady and well-paying employment, there is significant risk involved in the day-to-day working conditions of work sites. With that in mind, the injuries sustained in sites like those in the Eagle Ford Shale region can have devastating consequences for workers and their families. Aside from the more immediate physical and emotional damages of these injuries, victims may further suffer prolonged financial damages associated with the recovery process.
Even with the risks associated with working in the oil industry, there is no excuse for practices that cause injuries through no fault of your own. If you were injured while working on an oil or natural gas field, the Texas oil field injury lawyers at Williams Hart may fight on your behalf for the financial compensation you need to cover medical expenses, the cost of lost wages, and any other associated damages.

Why Do I Need an Oilfield Injury Lawyer?
If you have been injured while working in the oil or natural gas industry and you wonder what you should do next, our best advice is to seek counsel from a trustworthy attorney. You may be wondering how you will pay your medical expenses and your daily bills, and how you will provide for your family if you cannot work in the future. These are questions that add to your stress and suffering from already devastating injuries. You do not have to do this alone. An attorney can help you with every step of your case, from setting a strategy to handling all of the legal details in order to obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries allowed by law. Williams Hart has experienced oil field injury lawyers right here in Texas who can assist with your claim.
Insurance companies are a major consideration when it comes to oil industry injuries. The insurance company’s job is to make the lowest possible settlements to injured parties so that they can still make money even when they pay out claims. Unfortunately for the victims, the insurance companies are very good at their job. This means that you will likely be offered less than what you deserve for your injuries and related expenses. A knowledgeable attorney will make sure that your rights are fully represented with the insurance company and any other responsible parties. At Williams Hart, we deal with insurance companies all the time, and this means that we know when to accept settlements, and when to aggressively pursue other alternatives. We have extensive trial experience, so no matter your situation, having a Williams Hart lawyer on your side will mean that you do not just become another claim that the insurance company quickly settles. You will get the individual attention that your case deserves as we pursue maximum compensation for your injuries.
Oil industry accidents are often caused by factors that could have been prevented. It can often take a comprehensive investigation to uncover exactly what caused your injuries. If you are actively recovering, you probably do not have the time or energy to review the details of your accident in a way that can reveal crucial evidence. An experienced oil field injury attorney from Williams Hart can assemble a team to fully investigate the events surrounding your accident. This information can lead to valuable details that can result in compensation for your medical bills, time lost from work and other damages. We will use all of this evidence in your case to make sure that you reach justice in your case.

Dangerous Oil Field Injuries Involving Texas Workers
