Oilfield Accidents Around Midland-Odessa

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 oilrig 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.

Let Us Handle Your Accident Claim

Ask anyone who has gone through a personal injury claim alone and they will undoubtedly tell you that it was not a pleasant experience. From collecting evidence to filing claims properly, there is an ample amount of legwork, heavy lifting, and red tape you can encounter. Our Midland personal injury lawyer, and indeed our entire staff here at our firm, is completely prepared to manage your case in its totality. You really should be resting and recuperating, not worrying about legalities and regulations.

Our goal in your personal injury case is to recover compensation for:

  • Medical procedures and treatments
  • Property repair or replacement
  • Lost or reduced wages due to injury
  • Emotional grief and reduced quality of living

Nothing should be coming out of your own pocket, out of your own hard-earned wages, when you are not the one responsible for the accident that hurt you or cost the life of your family member. We never forget this truth and we use it to motivate ourselves.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

We Are the Professionals You Need

Legal advocates have offices in virtually every city in the country, but capable, motivated individuals can seem like they are few and far between. At Dean Law Firm, we place your priorities before our own and do all we can to be the right choice for you. With clever strategies and a compassionate outlook, we know that you will be pleased with our service, and recommend our lead attorney to your own friends and family.
