Who makes more money than virtually any business? The oil and energy business, which counts its enormous profits by the billions, not millions.No matching videos
Who suffers some of the worst accident injuries among American workers? Oil rig workers, who perform in one of the most dangerous jobs in America.
Who should pay — and can afford to pay — oil rig workers’ families after a loved one’s injury or death on such a job?
The oil companies, of course.
It all sounds so simple, and it all makes so much sense. Game over, right?
Not so fast. All this may not add up to a winning score for injured oil rig workers. No, the equation needs another element.
It needs a Texas oil rig accident lawyer.
It needs the veteran Texas law firm of Jim S. Adler & Associates.
With offices in Houston, Dallas and San Antonio, Jim S. Adler & Associates has helped thousands of Texas injury victims for over 30 years get the money they deserve from balky insurance companies or heartless employers. Now the longtime Texas law firm can help those in oil rig jobs, too.
And what do you have to do? That’s the easy part. Just call toll-free to 1-800-566-1144. Or send us the free case review form found above. Either way, we’ll respond promptly to help you size up your prospects for a successful oil rig accident lawsuit.
And you’ll never write us a check. The firm is paid only if your case wins, and then only as a portion of your oil rig settlement.
As an oil or gas field or oil rig employee, you have a legal right to seek financial compensation for your losses after a work accident that’s not your fault. You have a legal right to get money for your medical costs, your lost present and future wages and your pain and suffering. You have a legal and a moral right to take care of your family.
Yet your oil or gas company employer may not care about these rights. Why? Because it’s about profits, not people.
It may offer you a quick settlement that’s far less than you need and deserve for your oil rig accident injury. It may try to downplay your injury and force you to see a biased company-chosen physician. It may try to get you to make a recorded statement without the aid of an attorney.
You should reject all such demands. Instead, you should make demands of your own. You should demand the respect you deserve and the legal rights you have. And you can assert those rights with an oil rig accident attorney by your side from Jim S. Adler & Associates.
Even if a rig owner applies “no fault” workers compensation insurance for oil rig jobs, in order to underpay you and avoid being sued, you can sue subcontractors or other non-employers for their negligence in your oil rig accident injury via a third party lawsuit. Someone must pay, and it shouldn’t be the innocent worker placed in harm’s way by fat cats.
Texas’ oil and gas business is booming. High energy prices have prompted fast, vast expansion of wells across the Lone Star state, including such South Texas counties as La Salle, Webb, Dimmit, Maverick and McMullen, as well as nearby Gonzales County and, in Southeast Texas, Burleson, Brazos, Grimes and Lee counties.
Sites such as Eagle Ford and others are hosting many more wells for Texas’ littered oil-patch landscape. These rigs require a large labor force in gas and oil rig jobs — a force which may face life-threatening risks, even with the safety regulations the oil and gas industry should follow, but often doesn’t.
Indeed, some of the same recklessness which killed 11 men last year on board the Gulf Coast’s Deepwater Horizon oil platform can afflict oil and gas workers on land, too.
Land-based oil or gas rigs can suffer blowouts. Workers can fall from high places. Gas can leak and explode. Pipes or other heavy equipment can drop and crush workers. And workers can be exposed to toxic elements.
All such accidents and ensuing injuries don’t have to happen. Indeed, they can be prevented. Instead, they often occur by design. They occur because an oil company rushes to meet a deadline or cuts safety procedures to cut costs.
Due to such reckless and negligent decisions, workers may have the wrong tools for their oil rig job. They may be fatigued by long hours. They may be forced to comply with unsafe procedures. They may lack proper training or supervision.
Gas or oil rig workers also may be harmed while being transported by car, van, helicopter or bus to a rig site. Also, an old rig may not be properly maintained and thus lead to an oil rig injury. Or a new rig may be hurriedly assembled and thus cause injury.
The oil company is responsible for such injuries. The oil company must pay via an oil rig job settlement. And someone must make it pay — in the legal arena.
By now, you should know who that “someone” is. It’s an experienced and knowledgeable Texas oil rig accident lawyer from Jim S. Adler & Associates, a firm that’s been standing up to corporate callousness for over three decades.
Get an oil or gas rig accident attorney from Jim S. Adler & Associates, and get results. You and your family should have nothing less.
Does that add up? Good. Now let’s make negligent oil companies do the math — and pay you what you deserve in an oil rig settlement.
