Oil fields may be essential to the livelihood of many Californians but they are also areas in which workers’ compensation claims can run rampant. Serious injuries are not uncommon on oil fields and wrongful death cases are not uncommon either. This is why there are many state and federal laws that include tight regulations on this industry. Included in these regulations is the stipulation that any employer in the oil field industry is required to take great care to ensure their workers are safe.
But what happens when they do not do so? What happens when one of these companies shirks their duties and does not follow the requirements of the law? Whether they are looking to be more efficient, to speed up the process, or to save money, it is an unfortunate fact that employers may expose their workers to danger. If that happens then it is time to contact a personal injury attorney.
Not just any personal injury attorney can help with these cases
The sad truth is that these cases are often fatal cases. In the event that no one dies, the injuries are most likely very severe. As a result, these cases often involve a large amount of money. Not every personal injury attorney is up for this level of challenge. Fighting back against oil companies with teams of lawyers can be daunting for some but at The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker we have done it before.
