Texas is the number 1 state for energy production in the nation. The oil & gas industry employs tens of thousands of individuals throughout the state.
Working in the oilfield is how thousands of men and women put food on the table for their children.
A workplace injury that prevents you from doing that hurts even worse than other injuries do.
If you were injured on the oilfield and believe your company owes you compensation, contact the Waco, TX, personal injury attorneys at Biggs & Greenslade today to schedule a consultation.
If you’ve been injured in any workplace, you must protect yourself:
If you were injured on the job, report the injury to your supervisor. Follow your company’s injury reporting process.
Go to a family physician or other medical professional of your choosing. Ensure that they document your injuries.
Your company may offer to pay for treatment or to send you to a specialist of their choosing. Do neither of these things.
Your company may pressure you to return to work before your injury has healed. Do not return to work injured. You risk hurting yourself further, and your company can use this against you.
Your company’s HR department and insurance representatives can use your return to work to prove that you aren’t injured.
No matter what, you should consult with a personal injury attorney about your accident. At your consultation, they’ll be able to help you understand if you have a case.
If you choose them to represent you, they’ll immediately begin helping you recover compensation from your employer.
Throughout this process, remember that the company’s HR department is not there to help or protect you. They are there to protect the company. Do not accept money or submit a report until speaking with a lawyer.
Your employer is never your friend, and that almost always becomes clear after a workplace injury.
