According to East-Texas.com, the East Texas Oil Field is still alive and well, with numerous East Texas cities like Tyler, Longview, Marshall and Gladewater all still seeing high levels of oil and gas and other natural resource employment. While that is all well and good for the oil industry, one thing that is for certain is that working in natural resource development, such as oil and gas and salt mines, on the job injuries are going to happen. Working on the rigs, in the trucks, on the lines, in demolition, you name it there is opportunity for danger.
If You Got Injured in An Accident Today, What Would You Do? What Would Your Family Do?
When speaking with a former off shore driller from back in the late 1970’s and 80’s one day, I asked him, “did you ever think about what would have happened if you got hurt or died out there and what your family would do?” He said “not once”. Even though he knew that working offshore was dangerous, especially during hurricane season, he said back in the 70’s you just didn’t think about it.
My question to you is, what would you or your family do? This is a serious question because serious injuries happen all the time in oil fields and natural resource development all across the state of Texas. The first thing you need to do, after you have received any and all medical treatment is to contact a oil field accident attorney. If you were hurt due to the negligence of another worker, another oil field company, or some other negligence, you deserve to be properly compensated for your injuries.
