Who May Be Liable in an Abilene Oil Field Injury Accident?

There may be multiple parties that are directly responsible for the injuries sustained in your Abilene oil field injury accident. At Hilliard Martinez Gonzales, we take the necessary steps to investigate the causes of the accident and determine which actions led to your significant injuries. As an oil field injury victim, you have the burden of proof to obtain valuable evidence to prove the acts of negligence that led to your accident.

The following parties may be held liable for damages:

  • An Employer: In the majority of cases, an oil field company is liable for accidents that occur in the work environment due to negligence. Examples of acts of negligence may include failing to comply with safety standards and regulations, providing safe equipment and adequate training, and conducting regular inspections and maintenance. Failing to comply or meet these standards may lead to catastrophic injury.
  • A Manufacturer: Malfunctioning and defective machines or parts may be the result of manufacturer negligence. Explosions, fires, vehicle accidents, and other types of oil field accidents may contribute to severe injuries. If a manufacturer defect caused your injuries, you may pursue an oil field accident claim against the parts or machine manufacturer.
  • A Third-Party: Third parties may be held liable for negligence; for instance, part or machine mechanics that inspected or repaired a machine that caused your injuries may be held liable for negligence. Other workers may also be responsible if their actions caused or contributed to your injuries.
