Seeking Compensation For Accident Victims
Accident victims have many challenges to overcome as they recover from their injuries. They may face weeks, months or even years of surgeries, physical therapy and medical treatment. The injuries may impact their career, causing them to miss work or even prevent them from doing the job they have been doing for years. If you are faced with these challenges because of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to pursue compensation.
At the Law Office of Rebecca Anne Gonzalez in San Antonio, Texas, I am committed to helping victims of negligence get compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other costs. I want you to get full compensation. That means not simply accepting a low settlement offer from an insurance company, but seeing that your case is properly built to get you compensation for everything you have been through as a result of the accident.
What Type Of Accident Does Your Case Involve?
I am dedicated to helping victims of brain injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, broken bones and other serious injuries. I also pursue wrongful death claims for families that have lost loved ones in fatal accidents. I handle cases involving:
- Motor vehicle accidents, including 18 wheeler accidents
- Oil field accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
About Oilfield Accidents
The oil and gas industry is part of the backbone of our state’s economy, but it is also a very dangerous industry. In 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that, nationwide, 138 oil field workers were killed and almost 60,000 were injured. Texas accounts for 40 percent of oilfield deaths in the country, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Oilfield accidents also tend to be more destructive and deadly than other workplace accidents.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a driller, tool pusher, wire-line operator or other worker in the oil and gas industry, the Law Office of Rebecca Anne Gonzalez wants to help you.
Oilfield injuries are due to a number of causes, including:
- Explosions and fires
- Well blowouts/gushers
- Faulty and dangerous equipment
- Human error due to inexperienced equipment handlers or poor maintenance
- Heavy falling objects
- Motor vehicles
The physical damage can be immense and can include broken bones, severe burns, spinal injury and amputation. Your injuries may affect your entire future, and you will need to pay for medical care and a host of other expenses.
If you have been injured, it is essential that you talk to a lawyer before talking to your employer or insurance representatives. I will determine the cause of your injury, whether it’s due to faulty equipment; your employer cutting corners in terms of training, safety or maintenance; a co-worker’s carelessness or negligence; or a combination of causes.
Even if your accident was partially caused by your own actions, there may be contributing factors such as improper training or workplace policies that do not encourage safety. As your attorney, I will be tenacious in my work to obtain the compensation you deserve.
