After an oil field injury, you could be facing catastrophic injuries. You shouldn’t have to pay for those losses on your own.
If you were injured or lost a loved one in an oil field accident, Hilliard Martinez Gonzales will fight for your right to financial compensation. Our Corpus Christi oil field injury lawyers can handle every aspect of your claim or lawsuit.
Did You Face an Injury or Lose a Loved One in an Oil Field Accident? You Could Take Legal Action
If you were working at the time of your oil field injury, you could have multiple legal options. While many workers may start by seeking workers’ compensation benefits, this compensation could fall short of your needs for financial recovery.
We can help you file a personal injury claim or lawsuit in situations where:
- A third party is liable for your injuries (such as a contractor, subcontractor, or equipment manufacturer)
- Your employer did not carry workers’ compensation insurance
If you’re not sure what’s next or who’s liable, don’t worry – we do.
We will investigate your case to determine who should be held responsible. Then, we will explain all your options for recovering compensation.
Recoverable Compensation for Injury or Wrongful Death in an Oil Field Accident
We will work to go after all forms of compensation that you are entitled to. Your damages may include:
Medical Costs for Past, Present, and Future Care
An oil field accident can leave you with devastating injuries and an uncertain health outlook. Our team works to seek all the compensation you may need to heal.
Your compensation could address medical costs like:
- Emergency care
- Ambulance services
- Diagnostic testing
- Physical therapy
- In-home care
- Assistive devices and medical equipment
Whether you need months or years of medical care after your injury, we will pursue a settlement or award to cover those costs.
Income You Lost During Your Recovery
You likely missed work after your injury. You could even be unable to work into the foreseeable future. Our team will seek compensation such as:
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
Non-Economic Damages Can Address Your Suffering
An injury can affect every aspect of your life. We will pursue compensation for your hardships such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Compensation for a Wrongful Death

We Understand the Dangers Oil Field Workers Face in Corpus Christi
According to the Texas Oil and Gas Association (TXOGA), crude oil exports are a major industry in Corpus Christi. Unfortunately, we also see the consequences of serious oil field accidents firsthand.
According to statistics from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 489 workers in the oil and gas extraction industry were killed in work-related accidents between 2013 and 2017. The common types of accidents that cause these fatalities and other injuries include vehicle accidents, explosions, fires, chemical exposures, falls, and other causes.
Our team understands how these injuries affect victims and their families. We can put our experience to work for you.
Timing Is Critical for Evidence Gathering After an Oil Field Accident
An oil field accident can be a complex scene, as many personnel may crowd the environment. The responsible party will likely work to send out their representatives and take steps to downplay liability.
The bigger the head start we have, the more access we have to important evidence that demonstrates exactly what happened.
It is critical that we investigate right away. If you contact us for help, our attorneys act swiftly with an investigation that covers all the bases. We know the questions to ask and the crucial evidence to obtain. We will work to build the strongest possible case as soon as you hire our team.
