Houston Oil Field Accident Attorney

Houston’s economy is intrinsically linked to the oil and gas industry. Major players like ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, and Halliburton call Houston home. Thousands of Houstonians work in oilfields across Texas and beyond.

With such a massive concentration of oilfield operations comes inherent risk. From offshore rigs in the Gulf to hydraulic fracturing sites in the Permian Basin, oil and gas workers face dangerous conditions daily. Accidents can occur due to equipment failures, safety violations, toxic exposures, transportation incidents, fires, explosions, and more.

At The West Law Office, our Houston oil field accident attorney has extensive experience protecting the rights of injured energy workers. We understand the complex nature of oil patch cases better than anyone. Our legal team has an unparalleled track record of securing maximum compensation for clients suffering from oilfield injuries and tragic losses.

Common Houston Oilfield Accidents and Injuries

Oilfield accidents can leave workers with catastrophic injuries requiring lifetime medical care and accommodations. Our oil field accident attorneys routinely handle cases involving:

  • Burn injuries from fires and explosions
  • Head and brain trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Crushed and amputated limbs
  • Hearing and vision loss
  • Toxic exposure to silica, hydrogen sulfide, etc.

Toxic exposures are a major concern, as oil field workers can inhale or come into contact with deadly chemicals like hydrogen sulfide, benzene, and crystalline silica. Prolonged exposure can cause respiratory diseases, cancers, and other chronic illnesses.

We also represent families who have lost loved ones in fatal oilfield tragedies. Our hearts go out to these grieving families as we fight to obtain justice and wrongful death damages. Far too many hard-working Houstonians have had their lives cut short by preventable oilfield disasters.

Oil Rig Accidents and Your Legal Rights

Texas oil and gas companies must follow strict safety regulations to protect workers. Corporations that violate OSHA standards, cut corners on training and equipment, or prioritize profits over people must be held accountable.

Injured oilfield workers may be eligible for compensation beyond standard workers’ comp, including:

  • Additional damages from negligent companies/contractors
  • Compensation for pain/suffering, disability, disfigurement
  • Punitive damages for egregious company misconduct
  • Coverage of all present and future medical expenses

Our skilled litigators thoroughly investigate all aspects of the accident, from reviewing procedures and training records to analyzing equipment failures. We retain renowned industry and medical experts to bolster cases.
