Injured In An Oil Rig Accident? We Can Help.
Oil drilling is a dangerous job in a dangerous environment. Accidents can result in devastating injuries that affect you for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation replaces only a percentage of your lost earning, and it pays you nothing for the pain and suffering you are forced to endure. You may have another option.
At the law firm of B. L. Jensen, L.P., in Houston, we represent oil rig workers who are injured in accidents throughout Texas. We also represent families in cases of wrongful death. Our legal team has nearly 40 years of experience investigating workplace accidents and holding the negligent parties responsible. Additionally, attorney Brian Jensen is board-certified in personal injury law by the Texas Supreme Court.
Beyond Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ compensation provides benefits regardless of who was at fault. In exchange for providing these benefits, employers are generally protected from being sued by employees for accidents occurring on the job. However, there are times when you have the right to file a lawsuit against your employer or another person.
If the oil rig accident was caused by extreme negligence or by someone who did not work for your employer, you may have the right to obtain additional compensation through our civil justice system by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
The following are examples of accidents that may involve negligence:
- Natural gas explosions
- Failed blowout preventers
- Rig collapses
- Injuries caused by dropped objects
- Oil and gas service vehicle accidents
- Accidents on offshore oil rigs and drilling platforms
If you or someone you love was injured in an oil rig accident, we offer a free case evaluation to determine if you may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person or company that caused your injury.
