El Paso Oil Field Accidents Attorney
Get a Strong and Trusted Advocate on Your Side
Oil field work can be dangerous. Workers might conduct their jobs near toxic chemicals, using heavy machinery, or on high platforms, and more. Because of this, care must be taken at all times, and workers and employers must adhere to regulations to ensure safety. Unfortunately, although rules and guidelines are set for oil field work, they might not be followed to the letter. Recklessness or carelessness on the part of a co-worker, employer, or third-party can result in accidents that cause serious injuries. If you were harmed in an oil field accident caused by someone else, you may have legal remedies to pursue compensation for damages you sustained, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain/suffering.

Helping You Navigate the Complexities of the Process
Oil field accident cases can be very complicated. Numerous factors could lead to an accident such as an oil truck collision, field explosion, fracking accident, or a slip and fall.
Some common causes of oil field accidents include improper:
- Communication of safe practices
- Maintenance of equipment
- Storage of hazardous materials
If your employer does not have workers' compensation insurance, to recover compensation for the injuries you suffered, you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you pursue this legal option, you have the burden of proving that the at-fault party's negligence caused the accident and your resulting injuries. Because several different factors can lead to an accident, one or more people may be held responsible, making it challenging to know who to file your claim against.
At the Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz, our El Paso attorney will examine and analyze the site of the accident, review reports and records, and conduct all necessary steps to identify the responsible party. After we determine where to file the claim, we'll develop an effective legal strategy for your unique situation.
Will My Oil field Accident Case Go to Court?
Depending on the circumstances, your case may or may not be heard in court. The process for recovering compensation begins with negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company. This is where your attorney, you, and the insurer attempt to determine a fair settlement amount for your damages.
Because the insurance company is focused on its financial interests and paying out as little as possible, this step may be frustrating, especially when you're trying to heal. That is why our lawyer will be a fierce advocate on your side, going up against the insurance company for you. Our focus will be on seeking fair compensation on your behalf.
If we're unable to negotiate a just settlement with the insurance company, we'll be prepared to take the matter to court.
