18-wheeler accidents are a different kind of animal than a standard motor vehicle accident. They are more fact specific and the at-fault party’s insurance company will look for more ways to refuse to pay. The number one tactic is become best friends with the claimant or portray to the grieving family that they truly care, and then send them a low-ball offer in an attempt to get them to settle before they meet with an attorney and find out the real value of the claim. Do not fall for this age old trick! Before you accept any settlement from the insurance company or the at-fault party, you need to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about what is truly in your best interest.

EastTexasOilFieldAccording to a recent KETK.com report, East Texas is experiencing a new oil boom. That is very exciting for many East Texas residents who will tell you that, even as of 2015, the outlook was bleak and jobs were growing scarce, and things only got worse in early 2016 when the bottom fell out on the price of oil. When prices dipped below $30.00 a barrel, hundreds of oil field workers and employees lost their jobs.

While the oil industry is and always will be cyclical, many people were concerned it would never be back the way it was before. This is due in large part to the over production we were seeing across the United States and OPEC.

Raymond Woodward was interviewed for the special report by easttexasmatters.com. “The state of the oil industry, right now, is in a state of recovery from a very deep slump,” Raymond Woodward, President of BHL Consulting Inc says. “It is improving. Employment is improving. Oil and gas prices are improving. We are on the way up.”
