Oilfields employ over 1.37 million Texans, and those individuals produce over $6.5 billion for the state each year.
Oil & gas is the prime driver of the Texas economy, and it benefits everyone in the state and across the nation.
Government agencies require that oil & gas companies provide strict reporting on injury rates. A company with a history of worksite accidents will often lose contracts.
While this is designed to protect oilfield workers, sometimes it does the opposite.
In an attempt to protect their statistics, oil & gas companies may refuse to admit fault for a workplace injury. This can leave the employee with little recourse.

An oil & gas company’s safety record is tracked and, oftentimes, publicly available. The best companies protect their safety scores by providing adequate training and ensuring that employees are following procedures.
But some oil & gas companies want to take shortcuts. They don’t adequately train employees, let safety certifications lapse, and run a dangerous worksite to make a few extra bucks.
When an employee gets hurt, they’ll do whatever they can to prevent that employee from reporting–and getting compensated–for that accident.
We’ve seen employers and their employees fall out over these things. Oil & gas companies have extensive resources and teams of lawyers waiting to defend them.
A personal injury attorney familiar with oil & gas accident cases can help you fight back against an employer gone rogue.
After an injury, you should immediately report it to your supervisor. Your employer most likely has regulations for reporting a workplace accident. Follow those rules as closely as possible.
Visit your family physician or a specialist that you trust. It’s possible that your employer offers to send you to a doctor, but you should decline. That doctor may not have your best interest at heart.
Supervisors frequently demand employees return to work before their injury has totally healed. Never return to work before you’re 100% better. It can often be used against you in a case, and you run the risk of further injury.

If your employer maintains worker’s compensation insurance, you will be able to file a claim on that insurance.
Unfortunately, the State of Texas doesn’t require that employers maintain WC insurance. This means that many companies elect to save money and risk it if their employees are injured.
Should you be able to file a worker’s compensation claim, you won’t be able to also file a personal injury suit. In Texas, you can only do one or the other.

Most serious injuries will require medical intervention, especially if they were sustained on an oilfield. Grant & Flanery will fight to ensure you aren’t paying out of pocket.
If your injury forced you to miss work, you can file a claim to recover those lost wages. You’re also able to claim future wages lost because of your injury.
If your injury caused you undue stress, physical pain, or emotional turmoil, you can request compensation for the physical and mental pain it has caused you.
If your injury caused you permanent disability, either wholly or partially, you can get compensation for how it will permanently affect your life.
If you’re the parent, child, or spouse of an oilfield worker who was killed in an accident, the State of Texas allows you to file a wrongful death claim to get compensation for your loss.
