Oil Field & Drilling Rig Accident Lawyers in New Castle
Skilled Advocates For Injured Workers in the Pennsylvania Oil And Gas Industry
The pay is good but the risk is high. Anyone who signs up for oil and gas jobs knows it’s hard and hazardous work. But you still have rights if you are injured on the job. At Luxenberg Garbett Kelly & George, you are represented by experienced lawyers who are not afraid to stand up to the oil companies and their insurers. We will fight for your full benefits under workers’ compensation and pursue any additional lawsuits you may have.
The oil and natural gas industry is a major employer in western Pennsylvania, so we have handled our share of injury claims over the years.
This includes Marcellus Shale oil rig accidents and other injuries common to oilfield workers, such as:
- Well blowouts and pressure release
- Drilling machinery malfunction
- Fires and explosions
- Toxic exposures
- Falls from rigs and ladders
- Oilfield truck accidents
We know these accidents cause debilitating injuries, from broken bones and loss of limb to traumatic brain injury and lung ailments. Our lawyers make sure that clients receive all necessary medical treatment and full wage loss benefits while they are recuperating. We also advocate for employees who are pressured to return to work or subjected to independent medical exams to reduce their disability benefits.
Who Was Responsible for the Accident?
Workers’ compensation provides no-fault benefits. In exchange, you cannot sue your boss or coworker for causing an accident or putting you in a dangerous situation. However, you may have a third-party lawsuit against other contractors on the site if their negligence led to a drilling accident or any other workplace mishap. Our trial lawyers have extensive experience in both workers’ comp and personal injury litigation.
