Grand Junction Oil Field Accident Lawyers
Aggressive Representation After an Oil Field Accident
In the Western Slope area of Colorado, oil is one of the largest industries. Companies that include Exxon Mobil and Halliburton make the Grand Junction and Aspen areas home. Although this industry can be a boon to the local economy, toxic exposure, rigging accidents, and other tragic oil field accidents present tremendous risks for Colorado workers.
Oil companies are some of the most powerful sharks in corporate America. A personal injury claim against an oil company is no small matter.
At Doehling Law, our Grand Junction oil field accident lawyers have a wealth of legal experience. Attorney Gary Doehling spent 25 years in insurance defense and now uses his knowledge of the industry to protect accident victims. We are not afraid of going against the biggest oil companies in the industry and their insurance companies.
Third-Party Claims—Increased Compensation
Although workers' compensation is technically in place to cover injured workers, it rarely compensates work-related injury victims sufficiently for all of their long-term costs, such as physical therapy and prescription medication. Generally, workers' compensation prohibits injury victims from bringing lawsuits against their employers, but that does not mean further compensation is not available.
If another party other than your employer or co-workers—like the manufacturer of the equipment you use at your job, an equipment delivery person, or a subcontractor—was partially responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, you might be eligible to bring a third-party liability claim against that party.
Recently, our lawyers obtained a settlement worth more than $1 million for a client who suffered a severe head injury in an oil field accident. We know that workers' compensation will most likely not adequately cover you for the damages you have endured, and we will fight to get you the compensation you need.
Do not delay; get in touch with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your personal injury claim. Our lawyers will help you understand your options. If you choose to work with us, we will explore your accident injury case from every angle to ensure you receive the maximum compensation available.
