Oil Field Accidents

Oil Field Accident Lawyer in Hobbs, New Mexico

Serving Oil Field Accidents Victims Across New Mexico and Arizona

In an overview of the potential hazards of working in an oil field, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provides a long list of the dangers workers might face from day to day, including vehicle accidents, explosions, fires, and mechanical or electrical hazards. The companies that employ oil field workers are required by OSHA to implement careful protocols that protect their employees from these various hazards. As oil field workers and their families know, the mandated safeguards sometimes fail, or they are overlooked, and accidents that cause severe injuries or worse can happen.

Why Hire an Attorney to Settle Your Oil Field Accident Case?

Successfully handling conversations and negotiations with insurance companies and businesses in the oil industry is difficult during the settlement process. With our lawyer’s experience and strategy, however, it is possible. 

Some of what our firm can do to advocate for our clients includes:

  • Gather thorough evidence from the incident that will play a key role in our client’s case
  • Identify pertinent safety protocols and determine whether the company that oversees the oil field did or did not implement them
  • Consult medical professionals to understand the severity of our client’s injuries and to determine the damages we ought to seek in the case
  • Engage in complex legal negotiations with insurance companies, the employer, and other relevant entities 

Begin Your Free Case Review with Our Team Today

A significant part of pursuing our client’s case is examining the circumstances of the accident and determining who is liable. As we described above, OSHA requires employers to take necessary precautions to keep their employees safe. In instances where we can prove that an employer’s gross negligence led to an accident, we could seek to hold the company in charge of the oil field liable. 

There are others who could be liable in a case as well. The companies that manufacture the equipment and machinery workers use can be held responsible if a defect in their product led to an accident. Various third parties, such as a driver or contractor on the job site, could also be responsible for damages in any kind of crash or fire they might have caused.

Seek Compensation for Your Injuries 

There are no general dollar amounts that individuals who have been injured in an oil field accident can receive. The compensation we fight to get for our clients depends on their individual circumstances and needs.

Here are some of the damages we can seek:

  • Any medical related expenses, including therapies or treatments after the accident
  • Money for important prescriptions or medical devices 
  • Wages that a worker missed as a result of their injury 
  • Losses for quality of life
  • Temporary or ongoing disability benefits 

While no lawyer can guarantee their client an exact number, our Hobbs oil field accident attorney promises to do everything he can to see that his clients receive the compensation they need, when they need it most.
