Legal Assistance After An Oil Field Injury
Oil field work is dangerous. Texas newspapers and news websites are littered with stories about workers who have been injured or killed in oil field-related accidents. Indeed, our state is responsible for more than 40 percent of all U.S. oil field deaths.*
A number of factors contribute to this scenario. The energy boom in Texas has given rise to numerous oil wells and derricks. Many of them are managed and staffed by inexperienced personnel. The work is inherently dangerous — explosions and equipment malfunctions are inevitable, so even the most seasoned workers are at risk.

Third-Party Liability Claims
Who is responsible for your oil field accident injury?

Third-party claims or lawsuits may involve the manufacturers of defective machinery, negligent contractors and motor vehicle accidents involving parties outside the operation.
