Undefeated Oilfield Accident Lawyers

Oilfield Accident Lawyer | Oilfield Accident Attorney Houston

Over $1 Billion Won for Oil Field Accident and Explosion Victims

In addition to being Undefeated, our Oilfield Accident Lawyers have a national reputation for winning record-setting verdicts and settlements against the largest oil and gas companies in the world.

In just the past 5 years alone, our lawyers have recovered:

  • a $100 million settlement on behalf of workers injured in oil refinery explosion
  • the #1 Largest Accident Verdict in Texas
  • the #2 Largest Settlement in Texas
  • the #6 Largest Settlement in Texas
  • the #6 Largest Accident Verdict in Texas

We’ve been able to achieve these unprecedented results because (1) we dedicate whatever time and resources are necessary to maximizing our client’s recovery in each and every case, and (2) our lawyers are always prepared to go to trial in the event the defendant (or its insurance company) refuses to compensate our clients for all their injuries and financial losses.

Our Commitment to Our Clients: “We’re Not Just Lawyers, We’re Like Family”

What truly separates Zehl & Associates from other law firms, however, is our dedication and commitment to our clients.

In the words of many of our past clients, “we’re more than just lawyers, we’re like family.”

From locating and arranging for our clients to see the best doctors and medical providers in the country to helping them create trusts so that their children will never have to worry about paying for their educations and futures, our clients can always depend on our lawyers and staff to do everything possible for them and their families—even long after their cases have already been resolved.

If you or a loved one were injured or tragically killed in an oilfield accident or explosion, your company and its “claims adjusters” will do everything possible to avoid responsibility and prevent you and your family from recovering the compensation that you deserve—even if they tell you otherwise.

Unless you protect yourself, your family and your rights, the company, its insurer and team of lawyers will

  • deny responsibility for or blame you for the accident
  • lose and discard evidence you need to prove that the company was at fault or that you were not at fault for causing the accident
  • refuse to fully and fairly compensate you and your family for your injuries and losses by attempting to limit your recovery to workers’ compensation benefits—which rarely ever exceed $75,000, regardless of the severity of your injuries
  • restrict your medical treatment to “company” and “workers comp” doctors, who are more focused on helping the company save money than providing you with the medical treatment you need and deserve
  • terminate your employment at the first available opportunity, which is typically the minute you’ve lost your right to sue the company because the statute of limitations has run, and
  • do everything else possible to avoid responsibility and limit your ability to recover damages

Having successfully represented thousands of injured oilfield workers across Texas, Louisiana and the United States against the Largest Oil & Gas Companies in the World, our Oilfield Accident Lawyers have the experience, resources, and skills to stand up against the company and its team of lawyers and ensure that you and your family receive the maximum compensation available.

All consultations are free, there’s no commitment involved, and because we work exclusively on a contingency fee, you won’t owe us anything unless we win your case.

Oil Field Accidents and Explosions Are On the Rise Across the United States

When it comes to serious and fatal injuries, the oil and gas industry is the most dangerous in the country.

From 2012 to 2018, the collective fatality rate for onshore and offshore workers was 7 times higher than the rate for all U.S. workers combined.

Unfortunately, these statistics are only getting worse, as President Trump continues to repeal safety laws and regulations that were created to protect workers and discourage owners and operators from placing profits over safety.

Louisiana, for example, had 5 catastrophic refinery and oil rig explosions between January and October, which is more than the past 5 years combined.

What to do After an Oilfield Accident or Explosion

  • Stop working immediately
  • Report your injury as soon as possible
  • Demand immediate medical treatment at a doctor of your choice
  • Do not give a formal statement, sign ANY paperwork, or accept any money from the company (besides your normal paycheck) prior to speaking with an experienced oil field injury lawyer
  • Contact an experienced Oil Field Accident Lawyer as soon as possible.

Don’t Depend on Your Company to Take Care of You or Your Family

Despite what the company and its “claims adjusters” (a.k.a insurance agents) may tell you, their number one priority is to avoid responsibility and pay you and your family as little as possible.

Some of the most common ways that companies try to avoid responsibility include:

  • taking “recorded statements”
  • hiring private investigators to follow, photograph and videotape the injured worker and his or her family members
  • “losing” critical evidence that proves the company was at fault for the accident
  • blaming the injured worker for failing to “stop work” or perform a complete JSA or Hazard Analysis prior to starting the job
  • attempting to discredit the injured worker by obtaining conflicting statements from co-workers or “experts” hired by the company after the accident
  • minimizing the severity of the workers’ injuries by sending them to doctors who are hired and paid by the company, its insurer or the workers’ compensation provider, and
  • using anything the injured worker or his or her family members post on social media to claim that the worker is exaggerating or lying about their injuries

Some companies will even attempt to require injured workers to sign documents that prevent them from being able to recover damages from the company before it will release the workers’ paychecks.

5/5 Stars

“My husband was injured. This was such a scary time for myself and my family. My husband retained Zehl and Associates and immediately came a sense of relief as they paid medical bills that caused us a great deal of stress. They really took care of my husband….even came to our home over 1000 miles away. Ryan and his team were amazing! They truly took care of him and treated him like family. Thank you Zehl & Associates for all that you did for our family!”
