Knowledgeable Oklahoma Oil Field Accident Lawyer

Oil field injury attorneys guiding you through your case

The oil industry is an inherently dangerous field to work in because of the constantly moving heavy industrial equipment, danger of fire and explosion, heights and physically strenuous work. If you are hurt while working on an oil rig, platform or in oil fields, our Oklahoma City attorneys have the experience and knowledge to help you recover compensation for your injuries.

Recovering compensation for oil field injuries

If you were injured in Oklahoma oil fields or on an oil rig while on the job, compensation is generally provided by your employer or employer’s insurer through workers’ compensation to cover the costs of your medical bills, disability and disfigurement. If you lost a loved one in an oil field accident, workers’ compensation also pays death benefits.

Although workers’ comp is the typical form of recovery for injured oil field workers, you may be entitled to recover compensation in a personal injury lawsuit if your injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party. In many cases, it is difficult to determine the responsible party because of the number of contractors and subcontractors working in oil fields. Our injury lawyers analyze the details of your case to trace the liable parties and determine the best method of recovery for you. If we cannot provide you with the assistance you need, we refer you to attorneys who can.
