Onshore And Offshore Accidents
Oil fields often involve numerous companies working together on a drill site. If one contractor disregards a safety regulation or a worker acts negligently, everyone on the site is at risk of injury. Common oil rig injuries and accidents include:
- Pipe leaks
- Scaffolding collapses
- Lifting injuries
- OSHA safety violations
- Defective machinery
- Vehicle accidents on job sites
- Lost limbs
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
Know Your Rights, Maximize Your Compensation
If you were injured in an oil rig accident, the two most important things you can know are your rights and the extent of your injuries.
You are entitled to compensation; the amount of compensation depends on your injuries and the circumstances surrounding your accident. Attorney Rodney Townsend will sit down with you in a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your rights and review your options.
One of the most important things to remember is that while you are entitled to compensation, you only have one chance to get it. Make sure you get fairly compensated for your full injuries by seeking medical attention and seeing all necessary specialists. What looks like a minor injury today may actually be a symptom of a much more substantial injury. If you accept a settlement offer without knowing how injured you are, you may not get the compensation you need to pay for future medical costs and lost wages.
Mr. Townsend will work closely with your medical providers to make sure the full extent of your injuries are known, and then pursues maximum compensation for you. Contact Rodney Townsend today at 409-233-0773. Free consultations are available for most clients.
