Have you suffered property damage or financial loss due to the actions of an oil or gas company?
You have the right to full compensation.
Oil and gas companies are more than eager to join forces with landowners and reap the benefits of these important resources. However, unscrupulous companies can quickly turn big dreams into time-consuming, financial nightmares. Though oil and gas companies have a legal duty to protect every landowner’s interests, many are more focused on their own interests. Intentional acts to skim money off the top of lease agreements and mistakes caused by oil and gas company negligence can lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars in financial losses and property damage for landowners.
This guide provides an overview of your legal rights as a landowner participating in oil and gas development, legal responsibilities of oil and gas companies to you - the landowner, steps to filing an oil and gas landowner injury claim, and how to maximize your compensation.
