Abilene Oil Field Accident Attorney
Over the last few years, thousands of people have flocked to West Texas to work in the oil fields on the promise of hard work yielding financial security. Yet this work is also very dangerous, and what happens if you are seriously hurt on the job? For some injured workers, it may be possible to secure compensation for pain and suffering.
I am David N. DeFoore, Attorney at Law. From my office in Abilene, Texas, and in court, I fight on behalf of injured oil workers. I have built a reputation for effectively and aggressively representing clients who are dealing with some of the worst types of injuries, many of them sustained because their employers made a minimal commitment to employee safety.
Experienced Trial Attorney Who Knows Injury Law
Due to the Texas Legislature, oil rig operators that carry workers’ compensation insurance enjoy several protections that make it harder to recover damages from them. If you worked for a rig operator that did not carry workers’ compensation insurance, contact my office, and we can discuss how to pursue the compensation you need for your injuries.
Oil field accidents are occurring more frequently in the last few years with the boom in the industry. Back, neck and head injuries, quadriplegia, amputations and death are all common outcomes. If you can prove that your injuries are permanent, you may be able to secure a higher amount of compensation.
As your attorney, I will gather all the evidence I need, including medical evidence, and work with expert witnesses to attempt to prove that your injuries were caused by negligence. I will pursue every avenue available to get you the relief you need.
