Toppling Freight from Delivery Vehicles
Oil Field Injury Attorneys in Oklahoma City
Vehicles delivering goods to and from an oil drilling site may be transporting heavy items: piping, machinery and other objects that present their own hazards if they somehow topple from the vehicle and strike a worker. Freight may be improperly secured, the vehicle may be overloaded, the load may be imbalanced or the delivery vehicle may have a defective hatch that allows the cargo to come loose. These heavy objects can cause a great deal of destruction.
An Oklahoma City oil field injury lawyer from our team at the Law Offices of Stipe & Belote can help if you were injured by freight that fell from a delivery vehicle at the oil drilling site where you work. Regardless of fault and the circumstances that led to the incident, we can get involved and can investigate the matter to determine how to maximize your financial compensation or benefits.
Recover Fair Compensation for Your Injuries and Losses
When an oil field worker is injured, he or she typically sustains lasting and catastrophic injuries. Cuts and bruises are not the norm; it is far more likely for a worker to experience broken bones, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, head trauma and other injuries that will deliver a traumatic blow to the worker's way of life.
Enlist the assistance of a skilled attorney to make sure you have the level of legal representation you need to seek and recover full financial compensation for your injuries. In addition to seeking workers' compensation benefits under state law, we can see if you have grounds for a personal injury claim against a negligent third party that may be responsible for your injuries.
