Representing Victims Of Oil Well Fires
Oil well fires can happen for a variety of reasons, such as a natural gas leak, a build-up of pressure in the well or a spark from equipment. Somebody may have used the wrong tool, or safety equipment may not have worked as it was supposed to. Once ignited, the results can be catastrophic due to the enormous fuel supply.
Oil and gas companies typically refer injured workers to benefits from workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation pays benefits regardless of who was at fault. In exchange for providing these benefits, employers are generally protected from being sued by injured employees. However, there are times when you may have a right to sue for an on-the-job injury.
- If your employer does not subscribe to workers’ compensation
- If the accident was caused by a defective equipment or by someone who does not work for your employer (such as a contractor or supplier).
Many oil well fires are preventable events that someone failed to prevent. Our lawyers will use experts to investigate the cause of the accident and then do everything we can to hold the negligent party accountable. If the negligent party is not shielded by workers’ compensation laws, we will seek maximum compensation for everything you have lost through our civil justice system.
