Oil and Gas Field Injuries
No doubt, working in the oil and gas fields of Texas is dangerous.

As America tries to reduce its dependence on foreign oil, the workers of Texas oil and gas fields can expect increased production and longer hours on the job. An unfortunate side effect is that oil and gas field injuries will likely rise. Dangerous job conditions worsen when workers work long hours without adequate rest periods. In addition, under-trained new workers can compromise the safety of others. These dangerous conditions, or outright negligence and defective equipment, may have caused your oilfield injury.
When any worker is injured on the job, shared liability is possible. Malfunctioning equipment, unsafe working conditions, product defects, and negligence are more common than we’d like to believe. By aggressively pursuing cases and winning judgments in favor of the injured or killed workers, we can send a message to employers and product manufacturers that worker safety is their concern and these dangerous working conditions are unacceptable.
Don’t go it alone, let me help you pursue your legal options. Call me today for an oil and gas field injury consultation.
