Texas is known for having one of the strongest economies out of all 50 states in America, and a big reason for that is its oil field industry.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration says that 65 percent of all crude oil produced in the U.S. comes from five states, and of those five, Texas produces 36 percent of the oil.

Because oil is such a big industry in Texas, there are thousands of workers who work directly in the state’s oil fields or in support roles. And although oil field-related jobs have many guidelines and safety precautions to keep workers safe, those rules aren’t always followed, and employees are at a risk of suffering serious injuries.

At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, our Texas oil field injury lawyers may be able to help you get compensation if you were hurt on the job for expenses like:

  • Medical bills—Oil field injuries are often devastating, as they’re frequently caused by heavy equipment and machinery, fires, and even explosions. We’ll fight to help you get the money you deserve for your medical bills.
  • Lost wages—It’s bad enough to suffer an injury on the job, but when you can’t go back to work for months or even years, you deserve serious compensation. We’ll calculate how much money your accident has cost you and push to get you full damages.

Having an experienced legal team on your side after an oil field injury can make all the difference. Call today for a free consultation to find out how we can assist you.
