Longview Traumatic Injury Attorney

An oil field is by nature a hazardous workplace, particularly during the period when the drilling operation is being conducted and the drilling platform is under construction. Our nation's system of oil pipelines is deteriorating. A lifelong resident of East Texas, Longview personal injury lawyer Bradley Steele is all too familiar with oil field accident injury claims. Working closely with our investigator and staff, he has helped many clients and their families recover the benefits that allowed them to rebuild their lives after these catastrophic accidents.

Oil field accident falls and explosions

An oil field accident such as a fall from a drilling platform or an explosion typically results in serious or fatal injuries. The medical expenses and life-care costs associated with a traumatic head injury, paralysis from a neck or spinal cord injury, pain and disfiguring scarring from a burn injury, or another catastrophic injury may be covered by workers' compensation. However, those benefits provide no compensation for pain and suffering, only partial compensation for lost wages, and minimal death benefits. It is critical in these situations that any additional claims be identified and asserted.

At the Law Office of Bradley T. Steele, P.C. in Longview, immediately after accepting employment in an oil field accident case, we begin an initial investigation to determine the cause of the accident and identify responsible parties. We often find negligence on the part of the production company, the drilling company or the well service company. These companies almost always challenge a claim and defend themselves vigorously. Our team of professionals does not hesitate to file suit and prepare for the courtroom to secure compensation our client needs.
