Oilfield Accidents

Oilfield Injuries are far too common today, despite safety and monitoring devices. With a seemingly endless number of high pressure pipes, toxic and lethal chemicals, moving rig equipment and heavy duty transportation vehicles, there are an almost infinite number of ways to be injured when someone hasn’t done their job on, or around the rig. Laziness, inattention or indifference can set the stage for equipment failure or human error which may result in serious, or even fatal injuries.


Injuries which occur on, or around an oil rig may be extremely serious, or even fatal, and may result in money damages which add up to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, or even MILLIONS of DOLLARS!


MEDICAL BILLS:

When an Oilfield Accident causes Serious Injuries, the “Medical Bills” for treating those Injuries may reach HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of DOLLARS. This may include long and repeated hospitalizations to stabilize the victim, multiple surgeries, prolonged physical and occupational therapy, rehabilitation and expensive medications. The client may be faced with huge Medical Bills, but without any way to pay them.


LOST WAGES:

Depending on what type of work the Client performed on, or around the rig, the loss of past and future wages may add up to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, or even MILLIONS of DOLLARS. This is known as ”Past and Future Lost Wages.” The more the Client earned, the more the Past and Future Lost Wages may add up to be. Even if the Client did not earn high wages before the Oilfield Accident, the Lost Future Wages may be substantial when the Client is very young.


DISFIGUREMENT:

Some Injuries caused by Oilfield Accidents result in Physical Disfigurement. This means that there may be visible scars, crooked bones, or other visible evidence of a Serious Injury, despite excellent medical treatment. The law allows for the recovery of Money Damages for Physical Disfigurement.


PAIN & SUFFERING:

Injuries caused by an Oilfield Accident may produce incredible Pain & Suffering to the Client. This may be from the initial injury caused by the accident, the surgery(s) necessary to treat the injuries, as well as the Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation the Client must undergo following medical treatment of the injuries. The law allows the Client to recovery Money Damages for PAIN & SUFFERING, which may be very significant.


MENTAL ANGUISH:

You may also be entitled to recover monetary damages for Mental Anguish associated with your injuries and traumatic experience.

Mental Anguish is much more than common worries about everyday life–it is the overwhelming concern about how to pay for huge medical bills, whether there will be a full recovery from devastating injuries, or whether you will ever be able to return to work.


When connected with a physical injury, mental anguish includes both the resultant mental sensation of pain and also the accompanying feelings of extreme distress, fright, and anxiety. As an element of damages implies a relatively high degree of mental pain and distress; it is more than mere disappointment, anger, worry, resentment, or embarrassment, although it may include all of these, and it includes mental sensations of pain resulting from such painful emotions as grief, severe disappointment, indignation, wounded pride, shame, despair, and/or public humiliation.


Injuries caused by a oilfield accident may result in life altering consequences. The potential of your case depends on many facts which Judge Link will thoroughly review to determine that potential.
