Can I File a Personal Injury Claim for My East Texas Oilfield Accident?

On-the-job accidents and injuries happen every day all across Texas, many of them in the oilfields. If you have been injured in an oilfield accident, it’s important to understand your rights and the legal remedy that is best for your case.

Workers compensation insurance entitles you to benefits to cover medical coverage and partial lost wages regardless of who is at fault for your accident.

Colley Firm P.C. will guide you through filing a personal injury claim to recover the compensation you deserve for your oilfield injury.

You may have to take extended time off from work or you might even never be able to work in the oilfields again. Recovering compensation can help you cover your current and future costs, thereby protecting your family’s wellbeing.

  • If your employer intentionally caused harm to you or was egregiously negligent

Although you cannot sue your employer in most cases, you can file a personal injury claim against a third party who is responsible for your injury. Third parties can include the following:
