When you are injured in a car accident, the case may involve a simple payment by the insurer following negotiations. When you are injured at a desk job, filing for workers' compensation may be a relatively straightforward process.

When you are injured in an oil and gas accident, though, your legal case will likely be much more complex. In addition to determining the extent and cause of your injuries, your case will likely involve:

  • Determining the relationship between parties in oil and gas exploration (i.e. the property owner, the insurance company, the exploration company and other parties)
  • Analyzing the contracts between parties
  • Determining applicable insurance policies
  • Determining how a workers' compensation claim will affect the case

Were you injured on a ship, in a harbor or on a land or offshore oil rig while working in the oil and gas industry? Your employer and your employer's insurer will have a vested interest in minimizing your injury-related compensation, and will likely have a team of lawyers on hand to protect their rights. It makes sense to have an attorney on your side who is experienced in maximizing the compensation received by oil and gas injury victims.
