$15 million settlement for catastrophic oil field case

The Lamothe Law Firm represents oil field workers who are seriously injured while performing their duties.  There is no room for negligence at an oil and gas drilling site. The work involves heavy equipment, explosive gases, a fast pace of work. A single safety lapse can result in devastating injury or death.

Our lawyers understand the challenges you face after an accident at work. While workers’ compensation pays benefits regardless of who was at fault, those benefits are limited and will not cover everything you have lost. You may be entitled to additional compensation if a third party (someone other than your employer) was at fault for your injury. Examples of third parties include contractors, suppliers and equipment manufacturers. Our lawyers will carefully review the circumstances of the accident and explain your legal options. If your employer does not subscribe to workers’ compensation, we can file a personal injury lawsuit against your employer.

In addition to injured workers, our law firm represents family members of those who die in oil field accidents.

Twice, Frank Lamothe has presented a continuing legal education seminar to attorneys entitled, “Anatomy of an Oilfield High Pressure Gas Release Case” at the American Association for Justice Annual Conventions in Montreal and Los Angeles. Frank is also a member of the AAJ Gas Drilling/Fracking Litigation Group. Lamothe Law Firm recently settled a catastrophic oil field accident case for more than $15 million.

If you have been injured in an oil field accident, please call us for experienced, aggressive representation.
