Oilfield Accidents Around Midland-Odessa & West Texas

The state of Texas has its own unique set of growing health concerns as well, especially in the Midland-Odessa region. As the oil industry enjoys another boom, production is being ramped up and more facilities are being opened. With big oil and gas companies eager to turn a profit, they can be quick to overlook safety concerns and regulations on their industrial sites. The end result is a rising rate of catastrophic oilfield accidents. If you or a loved one have been seriously injured while working on an oilfield, oil refinery, or oil rig in Texas, you can rely on our Midland-Odessa oilfield accident attorney for all the legal help you deserve.

Truck Accident Lawyers in West Texas

The oil boom in the greater Midland-Odessa area has certainly been great for the economy, but not everyone has benefitted. A vastly increased number of oil trucks and big rigs along the highways here – such as on Interstate 20 and U.S. Route 385 – has led directly to a sizeable increase in the number of car accidents and truck accidents in Texas. Sometimes a trucker is forced to work unreasonably long hours for several days in a row, leaving him exhausted and slow to react in dangerous situations. In other scenarios, truck drivers push their vehicles too far, speeding illegally to make a deadline so they can end their shift or neglecting maintenance to prevent breakdowns. No matter what the cause of your truck accident may be, we can be the personal injury firm that supports your claims.

Consequences not uncommon to truck accidents in Texas include:

At Dean Law Firm, we see each case as unique as the people involved. Regardless of the outcome of your truck accident, we take strides to ensure that you are not handed a premanufactured legal solution, but instead, we analyze it from top to bottom, front to back, and craft a case specifically tailored to your individual needs. You are not a case number here. You are a friend in need, and we respect that.

Reliable Representation for Car Accident Claims

With more than 30,000 car accident fatalities occurring in America each year, traffic collisions continue to be one of the leading causes of injury and wrongful death in the country. If you have never been in a car accident, you probably know someone who has been in one. As unfortunate as this may be, it is the reason our Midland personal injury law firm has deliberately focused a portion of our practice to car accident cases. Through our legal advocacy, we hope that you can receive maximum compensation for your injuries and damages. Your case starts with you, though, and how you react after being in a crash.

If you are in a car accident, you should always:

  • Call for help

    Even if it appears that no one is hurt badly, you should call the authorities. Paramedics can better assess injuries for severity and responding police officers can help redirect traffic away from any debris your accident may have left in the road.

  • Do not admit fault

    You should never admit fault or openly apologize for any car accident. Doing so could pin liability on you later on, even if you are confident that you had done nothing wrong.

  • Collect evidence

    Use your cellphone to take pictures of the scene of the accident. Record video of eyewitness testimonies or get written statements from them. Do not forget to gather insurance and identification information from any other drivers involved in the crash.
