What to Do After an Oilfield Accident
The first few steps you take after a workplace accident will affect your case. Therefore, it is important to take action so that you can recover your damages. Some steps you can take may include:
Seek Medical Help Immediately
The most important thing you can do after an accident is to seek medical help from a licensed professional. Do not delay getting help. The longer you take to go to the ER or visit your doctor, the more difficult it becomes to prove your case.
File an Accident Report
If possible, try to file an accident report while you are still on site. According to Texas law, you have 30 days to file the report after the accident. However, you want to file as soon as possible so that you can get started with your case.
Document Your Accident Carefully
Your lawyer will want to review your case and gather evidence to prove liability. Therefore, you must document your case and keep careful records. Try to get contact information from witnesses, take photos, and save all of your medical reports, bills, and receipts.
