As the Oil & Gas sector has become a major part of the economy in Oklahoma, oil field accidents have become more common. Also, as part of the new push to discover more natural resources and to capture renewable resources such as wind and solar, there is more exploration than ever. Unfortunately a variety of problems can arise such as environmental issues, royalty disputes, property issues and pollution issues as well as oil field personal injury cases.
Although I handle oil field personal injury claims, I do not handle oil and gas claims, choosing instead to focus my practice on personal injury law. However, because the industry is so prevalent in Oklahoma, many of my clients come to me with questions that I unfortunately cannot answer. As a result, I have diligently sought out and developed relationships with other oil and gas lawyers who are skilled in those types of cases. If you have a royalty dispute, pollution claim or even a routine property law question and don’t know who to call, please don’t just pick a name from the phone book. Contact our Oklahoma City law firm and I’ll provide you the names of some lawyers with a proven track record. The lawyers at McIntyre Law are committed to helping those injured in oil or gas field accidents.
What are Typical Oklahoma Oil Field Accidents Like?
There is really no such thing as a “typical” oil field accident. Injuries occur from anything to explosions, fires, blowout, crushed hands, arms and legs and slip and falls on a slick surface. The one common theme is that most oil and gas field injuries typically are not minor and often lead to permanent or even fatal injuries. An experienced oil field injury attorney from McIntyre Law can assist you in recovering compensation for a wide range of injuries.
Where Does Fault Lie?
If you are harmed in the oil and gas field, many attorneys simply file your workers compensation claim and move forward. The attorneys at McIntyre Law do not end their investigation with the Oklahoma Workers Compensation Courts. Often third parties or grossly negligence employers are to blame for the hazardous working conditions that cause Oklahoma oil field accidents. We have represented the families of workers killed when something as simple as hose clamp was missing causing a pipe to spin and strike the worker in the head. When the law allows, the attorneys at McIntyre Law in Oklahoma City and Tulsa will pursue every available means to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries.
Royalties, Ownership and Contract Class Action?
While the attorneys at McIntyre Law do not regularly engage in class action royalty litigation, we do associate ourselves with various firms we know and trust in this highly specialized area of law. If you or a family member believes an oil and gas company has engaged in some improper accounting of your royalties or not abided by its contractual obligation to various royalty owners or working interest’s owners, please contact us immediately and we will immediately get you the professional answers you need.
