Work Accidents In The Oil And Gas Industry Must Be Treated Seriously
On-the-job accidents in the oil and gas industry can not only lead to severe injuries, but also leave injured workers and their families with a mountain of bills and no idea of where to turn for help.
At Farmer, Cline & Campbell, PLLC, we are committed to serving the hardworking men and women who make West Virginia’s oil and gas industry thrive. After an accident, we will gather evidence on your behalf to help you recover compensation from those responsible for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. When the oil and gas company or the company’s insurance carriers fight to reduce the compensation you receive, our lawyers will level the playing field and work tirelessly to help you seek full compensation for your injuries.
Causes Of Oil And Gas Worker Injuries
Oil and gas worker injuries are often more traumatic than those in other industries due to the powerful machinery and tools used in the extraction process, the high pressure and primal forces that make up gas and oil reserves that can accidentally be unleashed, and the heavy equipment necessary to retrieve oil and gas from the land. These and other related factors can lead to explosions and other well site or drilling-related accidents that can result in death or traumatic injuries to workers, including burns, crush-type injuries, paralysis and loss of limbs.
If you have been harmed in an oil or gas industry accident or if you have lost a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence, let us help. We are familiar with all relevant aspects of workplace injury law and the processes necessary to extract oil and liquefied natural gas (LNG), which makes us formidable courtroom opponents for even the largest companies and their insurers.
