We represent persons severely injured and surviving family members of persons who die as a result of oil & gas industry accidents caused by the negligence of other persons or organizations.
Our talented team of professionals provides injured persons and their families with highest quality legal representation on a contingency fee basis in high stakes cases involving oil and gas industry accidents, including those in oil and gas fields, at drilling sites, at refineries, those arising from pipeline transmission-related activities, those at commercial sales locations, and those at users’ locations.
When you are injured in an oil and gas industry accident, it makes sense to have an attorney on your side who knows how to maximize the compensation received by oil and gas industry injury victims. Those that work in the oil and gas industry are subjected to some of the most hazardous industrial conditions in the United States. As a result, oil and gas industry workers suffer more severe work-related injuries and suffer wrongful death more frequently than workers in other fields.
Whether you or a family member has been injured, or a family member has been killed, when struck by a piece of equipment or other heavy object that was sent flying when something went wrong, by a gas explosion, by a pipeline accident, or due to a fire, chemical exposure, a dangerous fall, or a falling object or piece of equipment, or by some other oil and gas industry-related accident, we can help.
Contact our experienced oil and gas industry accident injury lawyers today to discuss your matter. Our attorneys meet with potential clients free of charge and work on contingency. We do not charge any attorneys’ fees until a settlement is reached or a favorable trial verdict is won.
The oil and gas industry can obviously be a very dangerous place to work. Unfortunately, in many cases of serious injury or even wrongful death, the worker will have little recourse other than Workers Compensation benefits. Under Texas law, employers are protected in the great majority of cases from personal injury lawsuits under the exclusivity provisions of the Workers Compensation Act. However, there are exceptions. In addition, there are often many contractors and subcontractors on a job. If a contractor, subcontractor or other third party causes injury or wrongful death of an oil and gas worker, they are not usually protected under the Workers Compensation Act.
Whether you have been seriously injured or are a family member of the injured person, our legal team can help you cope with the ordeal by helping you to recover damages from the party responsible for the injuries. You or your family member may be able to recover monetary damages to compensate for all necessary medical care, past, and future, that is related to the injury. In addition, the injured person, and in some cases, the injured person’s loved ones, may be able to recover compensation for other losses resulting from the injuries, including damages for lost wages or other income, pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, and physical impairment. However, early and thorough case evaluation is very important to the development of your oil & gas industry accident case. So, please don’t hesitate. Contact our firm to discuss your matter as soon as possible.
