Texas is the biggest oil-producing state in the nation. Our economy depends on oilfield workers and producers to get our state ahead.
Energy companies take worksite safety seriously. They know how valuable their employees are–and how costly a personal injury case can be.
A lot of workers injured at an oilfield worksite are surprised by their employer immediately goes on the defensive after an accident.
If your employer is refusing to help treat your injury, you need an oilfield accident attorney to help.
Contact the Kaufman, TX, personal injury attorneys at Biggs & Greenslade today to schedule your free consultation.
After an injury, your employer may be trying to blame you for the accident. They may try anything to get out of paying to help you recover.
If you were injured on the job site, the first step is to protect yourself as you recover.
Report the accident and your injury to your supervisor. While reporting, make sure that you follow the company’s reporting protocol exactly. There’s no room for errors at this point.
Go to a family physician or medal professional that you choose. Get them to document all of your injuries.
Your workplace may “offer” to send you to a company doctor. Do not accept this offer. Your company may possibly use this information to deny your injury claim.
Your supervisor or the HR department may encourage you to return to work as soon as possible. They may even recommend that you work while recovering from your injury. Do not return to work until you are totally well.
Your employer may use your early return to fight your injury claim and get out of paying for your recovery.
Some companies do right by their employees, helping them bounce back from an injury or compensating them for medical bills and lost wages.
You can’t rely on your employer to do the right thing. You need the support of a personal injury law firm like Biggs & Greenslade.
A lot of our clients are surprised after a workplace accident. Their employer, once so good to them, seemingly turned against them overnight. They’re confused and hurt.
