Personal injury and wrongful death laws are always evolving. As such, the redevelopment of our site reflects this changing legal landscape.
Midland, TX (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
The work injury attorneys at Grossman Law Offices have revamped their Midland/Odessa website to offer a better online experience to accident victims and their families. The site features new content and information that is relevant to the citizens of the Midland and Odessa areas. In particular, information on the legal ramifications of accidents within the oil and gas industry are highlighted throughout the site.
Most relevant to oilfield accidents is the interplay between the injured employee and the insurance coverage of the employer. There are likely two scenarios that follow an accident while on-the-job, either the employer is a subscriber to Texas Workers’ Compensation, or they are not and self-insure. The two scenarios present entirely different remedies to the injured worker and both are addressed on the website.
Midland work accident attorney Keith Purdue discusses the two scenarios, “In Texas, an employer’s choice of insurance completely changes what follows a work accident. With workers’ comp insurance, compensation is usually limited to an administrative claim. In other words, no lawsuit may be filed, and any monies given out may be predetermined by what the Texas Department of Insurance deems as fair. On the other hand, if the employer is a non-subscriber, a lawsuit can be filed. This scenario typically results in compensation which is more commensurate with the injuries sustained, and represents both past and future hardships.”
The site does not focus exclusively on work injuries, however. Visitors can also learn about the difficulties of handling their own accident claim, the vast differences between a trucking accident and a car accident, or a bar’s liability following a drunken driving accident. Attorney Purdue continues, “Personal injury and wrongful death laws are always evolving. As such, the redevelopment of our site reflects this changing legal landscape.”
