Oilfield Accidents: Who Pays for My Medical Treatment If I’m Injured?

Undefeated Texas Oilfield Accident Lawyers: Who Pays for My Medical Bills After a Serious Injury?

After an oilfield accident, the companies that injured you should pay for your medical bills. But even when the at fault company or their claims adjuster promises to “make things right,” the fact is they care more about saving money than taking care of you and your family.  

Don’t make the mistake of leaving your medical treatment and your future in their hands. 

Hiring an undefeated oilfield accident attorney is the only way to ensure that you will be compensated for all of your past and future medical treatment, lost wages, and other damages, including your pain and suffering.

How Our Undefeated Oilfield Accident Attorneys Can Help

If we win your case, the parties who injured you will be responsible for paying the maximum compensation you deserve.

Our oil rig injury lawyers don’t just have a track record of winning, but of recovering the largest settlements in Texas and US history.

However, we understand that your medical treatment begins well before your case is settled, and that your bills don’t stop while your case is pending either.  

That’s why our team uses our experience, knowledge, and resources to not only fight on your behalf, but make sure you and your family are taken care of every step of the way.  

1. We Make Sure You Receive The Best Medical Treatment 

You should see a doctor as soon as possible after your accident, because if you don’t, the company that’s responsible for your injuries will attempt to use your delay in treatment as evidence against you. 

Remember, you have a right to demand to see the doctor of your choice, even if your employer says you are required to go to “company” and “workers comp” doctors – who are more focused on saving the company money than your care. 

With a network of the best doctors and medical providers across the United States, we know where to find the specialists you need to treat your specific injuries and how to get you in for treatment as soon as possible. When it comes to locating and ensuring that our clients see the best doctors and medical providers in the country, Zehl & Associates is unmatched. 

2. We Help Cover Medical Bills While Your Case is Pending

We understand that your bills don’t stop after an accident, which is why we’re always willing to assist with reasonable living expenses and medical bills for as long as your case is pending. 

We front all the costs and dedicate whatever resources necessary to winning your case — and you don’t pay a dime unless we win.

Once your case is resolved, we also put together a team of top financial advisors who can help establish a financial plan and set up trust funds that will continue to provide for you and your family for the rest of your lives.

3. We Take The Burden Off You & Your Family

Our team has won Billions for oil and gas workers who were severely injured or killed in catastrophic oil rig accidents in Texas and across the U.S. And in every case, our top priority is always the same — doing whatever it takes for our clients, so that they can focus on what matters most.

Once hired, our unwavering commitment to our clients includes:   

  • Finding and making sure you have access to the best medical providers and treatment 
  • Gathering all medical expenses and other evidence to prove the company was at fault
  • Filing a claim against the at-fault party
  • Helping cover your bills and reasonable living expenses while your case is pending
  • Negotiating with medical providers to prevent collections whenever possible
  • Negotiating with your health insurance over medical treatment costs and reimbursement whenever possible
  • NEVER settling for less than the maximum compensation that covers ALL of your past and future medical bills, lost wages, mental anguish, and damages

But don’t just take our word for it. Hear what our clients have to say about working with us.

4. We Fight to Recover the Full Compensation Possible

After an oilfield accident in Texas, workers’ compensation benefits can limit an employee’s ability to sue their employer. However, Texas does permit workers to file personal injury lawsuits against other companies and contractors that caused or contributed to the accident.

In fact, a majority of our oilfield cases are against third parties, such as:

  • Well Owners and Operators
  • Contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Safety companies
  • Any other individuals or companies that may have caused or contributed to the accident or your injuries

Additionally, if your injuries are the result of your employer’s gross negligence (or a third party’s gross negligence), you have the right to hold them fully accountable.   Filing an oilfield accident lawsuit is the only way to do so. 

Of course, how much you are able to recover directly depends upon the success of your legal team. At Zehl & Associates, we are undefeated in the courtroom.

Never Depend on Workers’ Compensation 

If your employer carries workers comp coverage, it will pay your medical bills and a portion of your average weekly wages. 

However, workers compensation doesn’t come close to replacing the damages and weekly wages many oilfield accident victims typically earn. And it doesn’t compensate you for your future medical expenses, pain and suffering, physical impairment, mental anguish or any of the other damages you can recover in a personal injury lawsuit.

Oilfield accidents can leave workers with life-altering injuries — including catastrophic burn injuries and traumatic brain injuries — not to mention mounting medical bills and an uncertain future. 

With your future on the line, you cannot rely on your company to do the right thing. Take the  necessary steps to protect your rights and your family’s future and contact our Texas Oilfield Injury Lawyers as soon as possible. 

While you’re recovering and deciding whether or not to hire an attorney, the company and its team of lawyers will be doing everything possible to escape responsibility and avoid paying you and your family the damages you deserve.
