Oilfield accidents happen in oil & gas fields throughout the United States far too often and many go unreported. Oil & gas well drilling activity in Texas is exploding, and as a consequence, the number of oilfield accidents and oilfield related injuries & deaths are also rising.
Oil and Gas drilling sites are dangerous places. No matter how vigilant a worker may be, serious oilfield accidents can still occur, resulting in devastating injuries or even death.
If you were injured or a loved one died in an Texas oilfield accident, your options for financial recovery may exist beyond workers' compensation or Social Security. If negligence on the part of another can be established, you may be able to recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit.
Oilfield workers often work long hours without adequate rest, and are forced to take unsafe, unnecessary chances. Safety standards are often ignored in order to keep the drilling rig operating as fast as possible. Companies sometimes hire inexperienced workers or fail to properly train their workers subjecting even the most experienced crew member to dangerous conditions.
Texas attorney David B. Robinson is proud to represent oilfield workers and their families.
