Eagle Ford Shale Accidents And Injuries

The oil-bearing portion of the Eagle Ford formation is found under a large swath of South Texas, and it has become one of the most active oil and gas sites in the entire United States in the past decade. But along with the jobs and economic activity it has brought, the activity in the region has also brought along danger in the form of oil field accidents and motor vehicle accidents.

At The Law Offices of Miller & Bicklein, P.C., we have been representing injury victims throughout Texas since 1994, including many oil field workers. We combine the resources needed to pursue maximum workers' compensation benefits and personal injury compensation with the personal service you need during a difficult time.

Oil Field Worker Injuries

The oil fields can provide a good living, but they are inherently dangerous. Difficult terrain, harsh weather, heavy equipment and careless people all combine to create the conditions for serious injuries to occur. If you have been injured in an oil field accident we will stick up for your rights and seek to maximize your compensation. If a third party — such as an equipment manufacturer or a negligent motorist — is responsible for your injuries, we can pursue a personal injury claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

The energy industry is not the only thing booming in South Texas. Traffic has also exploded, and more vehicles equals a higher likelihood of motor vehicle accidents. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were 3,430 crashes and 236 traffic fatalities in 2013 alone.

If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, a personal injury claim can provide you with financial compensation to cover your medical costs, pain and suffering and your lost income. If you were driving as part of your job, our lawyers can help you obtain workers' compensation benefits while simultaneously pursuing a third-party personal injury claim against a negligent driver who caused your accident.
