Am I Entitled to Compensation for My Oilfield Injury?
If you were injured while working in an oilfield and it wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation from your employer or a third party. The attorneys at Johnson & Biscone aggressively represent injured oilfield workers to help them get the compensation they deserve.
What If I Already Accepted Workers’ Comp?
If you’ve already accepted workers’ compensation for your injuries from your employer, you may still be able to recover more compensation from other parties responsible for the accident. For instance, manufacturing defects in parts or tools could entitle you to compensation from the manufacturer in addition to your workers’ comp.
