Do I Have a Case?

If you are wondering whether you have a case to receive workers’ compensation benefits and/or other compensation for your injuries, consider the questions below. When we review your case, these will help us determine if you have a case and what damages you are entitled to.

While the severity of injuries will vary, some of the most frequent injuries that occur on oilfields include the following:

Due to the hazardous environments that oilfield workers operate in, accidents happen more frequently than most people realize. The most common causes of oilfield accidents include: 

  • Fires and explosions 
  • Electrocution 
  • Hydrogen sulfide poisoning
  • Slip and falls 
  • Equipment failure

In Texas, there is a one-month statute of limitations on oilfield-related workers’ comp. This means that you have 30 days to report the accident to your employer in order to receive benefits. It’s vital to get started right away so that you don’t miss your chance to seek compensation.

What Compensation Am I Entitled To?

Generally, if you’re injured on the job, you’re entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Under this form of insurance, your medical expenses, therapy, and part of your lost income will typically be covered. You may also be able to receive additional benefits depending on your case.

If you suffered injuries due to the negligence of a third party, such as an equipment manufacturer, you may be able to pursue compensation beyond workers’ comp benefits. However, many large corporations have legal teams and insurance policies in place in case of a lawsuit. This often makes it difficult for injured individuals to seek compensation. When deciding whether or not to file a lawsuit against a third party, it’s in your best interest to submit your case for a free consultation and get expert advice for your situation.

How Can an Oil Field Accident Attorney Help Me?

The legal process of completing a workers’ comp claim can be difficult and confusing on your own. It’s important to make sure you have every document and complete each step on time. This is especially true when your claim has been denied and you are starting an appeal. Having a lawyer on your side who knows the workers’ comp laws in and out and has experience bringing Texans the benefits check they deserve will give you an advantage in your claim. 

With Braker White’s office handling your case, you can rest assured knowing you’re in good hands. If you aren’t sure about your next step or have questions about your claim, we are always here to communicate your options openly and honestly.

What’s Next?

When an accident happens on the job, notifying your employer is crucial. If you fail to inform your employer of your accident, you may negatively impact your chances of recovering any compensation. When reporting to an employer, it’s important to be honest about how your accident happened and the severity of your injuries. 

After you have informed your employer, you should see your doctor or go to the hospital, depending on the severity, and receive treatment. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, being examined by a doctor is vital to both your health and your claim. 

Once your injuries have been evaluated, it’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions. Failure to do so can damage your claim and chances of receiving compensation, and your injuries may become more severe.

Recovering damages after an oilfield accident is not simple. The insurance company may attempt to delay your benefits or deny your workers’ compensation claim completely. After your accident, it’s best to consult an experienced attorney to ensure you’re not taken advantage of by insurance companies that are only interested in their own profits.

Following these steps after an oilfield accident may help secure any benefits you’re rightfully owed. Employers are typically required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to help a worker who is injured on the job. If you’re struggling to obtain benefits after an oilfield accident, contacting an Odessa workers’ comp attorney with experience in oil field accidents is in your best interest.
