Texas Oil Field Accident Lawyer
Oil field workers understand that they work in an extremely rewarding, yet dangerous work environment. The industry they’re employed in is motivated by high prices and the need to drill and maintain current production volumes. Unfortunately, these factors lead to many workers being seriously injured or killed as a result of an oil field accident or injury. Employers requiring their workers to work double shifts or long hours without adequate breaks may cause these injuries. Third-party contractors and general employer negligence can also cause them.
If another person or party’s negligence has caused an accident and you have suffered an injury that could have otherwise been avoided, you may be entitled to compensation.
