Eagle Ford Shale Work Injuries

The oil boom has created jobs and a thriving economy in West Texas. Unfortunately, it comes at a price. If oil field workers, oil companies and subcontractors are negligent in their duties, they can cause catastrophic harm. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed on the Eagle Ford Shale, you may be able to claim compensation for the damage done to you.

Accidents Associated With The Eagle Ford Shale

Oil field workers are under constant pressure to move faster and increase production. This can lead to serious accidents caused by:

  • Driver fatigue among truck drivers delivering fracking liquid or transporting oil
  • Defective or poorly maintained equipment
  • Worker error
  • OSHA violations

Most accident victims are taken to Kenedy or Karnes City for treatment, but may need facilities that are far more advanced to fully recover from their injuries.

Workers' compensation is available to anyone injured on the job, if your company subscribes to the state plan. If not, you may need to make a claim against your employer for adequate compensation for your injuries. You may also be eligible for compensation from third parties if they were the cause of the accident.

Our lawyers will thoroughly investigate the cause of your accident and pursue compensation from the negligent parties. We work with engineers and other experts to show where the fault for your injuries lies. We also consult with your doctors and other medical professionals to determine how your injuries will affect you in the future, including your ability to return to work.

We create a complete picture to present to the liable party and its insurance company as we open negotiations. We will not hesitate to take your case to court if you are not compensated fairly.
