Oil Field Injuries

San Antonio Attorneys For Injured Oil Field Workers

Oil and natural gas resources in the Eagle Ford Shale deposit have brought jobs and opportunity to south-central Texas. Unfortunately, in the rush to develop these resources, some companies take shortcuts that place workers and residents in harm’s way.

Marynell Maloney Law Firm has more than 30 years of experience helping people recover the compensation they need to put their lives back together after a serious injury. We represent injured workers as well as residents and people traveling through the area who are injured. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Representing Injured Workers And Residents

There is no room for negligence at an oil and gas drilling site. The work involves heavy equipment, explosive gases, a fast pace of work. A single safety lapse can result in devastating injury or death.

Our lawyers understand the challenges you face after an accident at work. While workers’ compensation pays benefits regardless of who was at fault, those benefits are limited and will not cover everything you have lost. You may be entitled to additional compensation if a third party (someone other than your employer) was at fault for your injury. Examples of third parties include contractors, suppliers and equipment manufacturers. Our lawyers will carefully review the circumstances of the accident and explain your legal options. If your employer does not subscribe to Texas workers’ compensation, we can file a personal injury lawsuit against your employer.

In addition to injured workers, our law firm represents family members of those who die in oil field accidents. Workers’ compensation will not go far in meeting your family’s financial needs following the death of a breadwinner. Our lawyers will help you deal with the legal and financial issues you face so you can concentrate on your family.
