Lubbock Oil Rig Accident Attorneys who have your Best Interest in Mind
In our community, there are oil wells and derricks dotting the West Texas landscape as far as the eye can see. With the energy boom comes a need for thousands of oil field workers, many of whom may lack the training necessary to properly do the job for which they were hired. Too many young workers, swayed by the possibility of making good money and providing financial security for their families’ futures, are being seriously injured and killed.
At Kerby & Wade, we fight nonstop for these workers and their families. Because oil field accidents can cause catastrophic injuries, many young workers will never be able to work again. From our office in Lubbock and throughout West Texas, we meet with victims who need someone to stand up for their rights.
Due to current Texas legislation, pursuing compensation for oil field accidents is difficult. Because the injured workers’ employer is often protected by workers’ compensation insurance, it may be necessary to hold a third party liable for the injuries.
As skilled personal injury attorneys and civil litigators, we will work relentlessly to attempt to increase your compensation. We will pursue every opportunity available to get you the compensation you deserve.
