Oil and Gas Well Accidents

There are many kinds of accidents that can happen on an oil or gas rig or well: a spill, a drilling rig breaking free from its tow, a gas leak, earthquakes, and pipeline ruptures are just a few. But the worst, by far, are explosions. If you or a loved one have been affected by this type of accident, contact a Houston oil accident attorney immediately to discuss your case.

When an accident happens

When an accident happens, you’ll likely receive workers’ compensation, but this may not be enough to make up for and cover all of your lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Moreover, depending on the cause of the accident, there may be a third-party that’s liable for your injuries. If that’s the case, you don’t want to let their negligence be ignored.

Long-term effects

You can suffer from burns, nerve damage, broken bones, inhalation injuries, or even internal organ damage from an oil or gas well accident. These injuries can have long-term consequences that may not be immediately known. In some cases, you may never be able to work again. The Law Office of D’Ann Hinkle can help you understand the potential future in regards to your injuries and the expenses, lost wages, and other effects so that you don’t settle for a low offer from an insurance company or liable third party.

Why you need a lawyer

It is difficult enough to file a lawsuit on your own. When you’re dealing with injuries, and worried about your present and future income as a result of an accident, the last thing you want to do is try to interpret and understand the laws on your own.

A qualified Houston oil accident attorney can look over your case, interpret the evidence, and determine who is at fault. They can help you file a lawsuit, gather information, and prepare you for trial. They can also advise you on whether the settlement being offered is acceptable or if you need to stand firm and wait for more. Contact the Law Office of D’Ann Hinkle for a free consultation to see what you should do next. She will compassionately fight for you to see justice in your case.
