Oil Work Accident FAQ

Typically, injuries from an oil field accident are more severe than other personal injuries, and can result in loss of limb or life. If you work on an oil field, you might have questions about these kinds of injuries. We at the Law Office of Michael R. De La Paz want to answer some questions.

How Much Is My Claim Worth?

Our goal is to get the best possible compensation for your injuries, which is why we want the insurance companies to consider all the factors of your injury, like:

  • Medical bills
  • Medical equipment
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of life

Insurance companies will often try to pay for as little as possible for your injuries, which is why we will negotiate for you to earn the best possible payout for your injuries.

What Should I Do After An Oil Field Accident?

After an oil field accident, there are several things you can do to improve the outcome of your compensation claim. If you are able to, gather as mush photographic evidence of the scene of the accident as possible. If anyone witnessed the incident, you should also gather their contact information.

How Soon Do I Need To File A Claim?

In Texas, you have two years from the date of the incident to file a claim for your personal injuries. This might seem like plenty of time to file a claim, but the fact of the matter is that you need to file a claim as soon as possible. The sooner you file a claim, the easier it is to gather critical evidence.

Do I Need A Lawyer?

If you are looking to pursue compensation for your injury, you do have the option to face that challenge on your own. However, there is a mountain of legal red tape that you will need to navigate, and without extensive experience in negotiation, you might not be able to get the compensation you deserve.

Thankfully, an attorney can do all of this, and better yet, you do not have to pay us unless we get a payment for you.
