Lawsuit follows oil well blast that caused fatal injuries

On Jan. 29, a Texas oil well exploded near Deanville. Three workers suffered fatal workplace injuries in the blast. The daughter of one of the deceased workers recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Chesapeake Energy Corp. Three other oilfield service providers were also named as defendants in the civil claim.

More workplace injuries in retail than in other Texas industries

The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported that workers in the retail industry in Texas suffer more occupational illnesses and injuries than workers in all other sectors in the state's private sector. With workers' compensation insurance being optional for employers, there are likely thousands of victims of workplace injuries each year who are left with medical bills, lost wages and unanswered questions. However, the Division of Workers' Compensation of the Texas Department of Insurance reports a significant number of claims from workers in the retail industry.
