Houston, TX Oilfield Injury Lawyer
Demand for oil energy is up. Texas is very much a part of this boom, and the demand for oilfield workers is at an all-time high. If you work in the oil industry, then you are intimately familiar with the dangers and hazards associated with the job. You have been well-trained. Following certain rules and regulations regarding safety has become second-nature to you. Keeping yourself and the people around you out of harm's way is a principle that you hold to with unyielding persistency.
The oil companies also have a responsibility. While you can only see and know the dangers that may be present where you work they are responsible for conducting a general risk assessment. It is the job of the owners and managers of the rig you work on to eliminate or mitigate the dangers that may confront you.
If you have suffered an injury, negligence on their part may have led to it. This is not something you should let go. It is not right for you to undergo tremendous physical and emotional pain because someone above you cut corners. Your health and person are invaluable. You should not submit to the supposition that making money for others is more important than your right to be safe in the workplace.
Oilfield accidents occur in a variety of places and ways. These include:
Poisoning through released gases
Slip and falls
Helicopter, truck, and boat accidents
Reyna Injury Lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve if you have suffered injury from any of the above incidents or others.
After the accident occurs you should speak to no one until you have had a chance to make contact with a Houston, TX oilfield injury lawyer. The first people who will show up at your bedside will be officials and lawyers representing the drilling company. They will try to get you to sign a disclosure stating that they are not responsible for the accident. Their first move will be to put pressure on you to sign away your rights to a just and adequate compensation.
Don't sign anything, don't speak to anyone, don't answer any questions or make any statements, written or oral, until you have sat down with a Houston, TX oilfield injury lawyer. It is the only way you can prevent yourself from being cheated out of what is rightfully yours.

While some accidents cannot be foreseen or stopped others can. You should not allow the oil company to get away with neglect. The pain and suffering you have endured is bad enough.

It is right for you to hold those responsible for the accident accountable, and the only way to do that is to file a law suit.
The company will want to settle if they see that the evidence is against them. However, you should accept no offer that seems unequal to all that you have had to endure.
