An Oilfield Accident Lawyer Can Help You Prove Negligence in Your Case
An oilfield accident lawyer with our firm can investigate the circumstances of your accident. We can use the information we find to fight for the best possible outcome on your behalf.
We Can Help You Investigate Your Accident
In order to determine who is liable for your accident and injuries, your lawyer can investigate exactly what happened and how it happened. They can uncover evidence that can be used to prove that someone else’s negligence resulted in your injuries.
In the case of oilfield accidents, the negligent party (or parties) could be your co-worker, contractor, or subcontractor. It could also be an agency or department. Your oilfield accident lawyer can make a determination about fault and liability after reviewing your case.
We Can Help You Prove Negligence
In order to recover damages for your injuries after you have been injured in an oilfield accident, you will need to show that your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence.
Negligence is an action (or inaction) that does not align with what a reasonable person would do in similar circumstances.
We can prove negligence by establishing:
- You were owed a duty of care to be safe on the oilfield.
- Someone breached this duty because of their negligence.
- This negligence caused your accident.
- Your accident caused injuries for which you can be compensated (called “damages”).
We Can Negotiate for Fair Compensation on Your Behalf
Once we have assembled your case, we can use evidence to negotiate on your behalf. The negligent party’s insurance company may refuse to pay the amount you are owed, however.
We can negotiate with the insurance adjusters so that you do not have to. If the insurance company still refuses to pay what you are owed, then we can pursue compensation in court.
We Can Fight for You at Trial
An oilfield accident lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins is not afraid of seeing your case through to the end. We prepare each case as if it were going to trial. We will not hesitate to present your case before a judge or jury to fight for what you deserve.
Sometimes, insurance companies decide to settle after a trial has begun. Other times, the case will go through to a verdict.

You Could Recover Compensation Even if You Were Partially at Fault
Even if you believe that you may have been involved in causing the accident, that does not mean that you are out of options. In fact, under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §33.001, you can recover damages as long as you can prove that the other parties involved were more at fault than you were.
This is called proportionate responsibility, and it not only impacts your ability to recover damages but also the amount of damages you can recover. We can explain how the proportionate responsibility statute may affect your case after your evaluation.
