How to pursue compensation for Oil, Gas, and Chemical Injury Survivors and seek the medical treatment they deserve. 

The United States has become one of the largest oil producers in the world. Thousands of Americans support their families by working in the petrochemical industry.

Tragically, many companies are lax with basic safety standards or fail to train workers in safety precautions. ’When work accidents happen, some companies fail to take responsibility. The injured worker is stuck with medical bills, lost wages, and no way to support their family. 

Common Oil, Gas, and Chemical Worker Injuries

      1. Burn injuries: blistering, scarring, first-degree burns, second-degree burns, and third-degree burns. 
      2. Bone injuries: broken bones, shattered bones, hairline fractures, compound fractures. 
      3. Head injuries: skull damage, facial damage and/or lacerations, traumatic brain injuries, concussions. 
      4. Back injuries: paralysis, spinal cord injuries, herniated discs, whiplash, and sciatica.
      5. Limb and extremity injuries: leg and arm amputations, finger and toe amputation, mobility issues, temporary or permanent damage to all limbs and/or extremities. 
      6. Chemical exposure: inhalation, cancer exposure, chemical burns, and vision damage.  

Petrochemical workers may be able to pursue financial compensation from their employer or other negligent parties after an accident. An oil field accident lawyer can help determine who is responsible for your injuries and how much compensation you deserve.
