Texas is the largest oil and gas producer in the U.S. by a landslide. We have many areas rich in oil and natural gas deposits, including the Eagle Ford Shale, Barnett Shale, Permian Shale, and Haynesville Shale areas. This makes oilfield injuries and deaths unfortunately quite common here in Texas. What’s worse, injuries and fatalities from oil and gas accidents increased in 2021 compared to 2020.
Victims of oil and gas accidents often face many hurdles to getting compensation, as they are fighting large oil and gas corporations. Our team builds a strong personal injury case for you against negligent parties like oil and gas companies.
Common Types of Oil & Gas Accidents
Oil and gas production in Texas can create many different hazards that lead to accidents, injuries, and death. Some of the most common types of accidents linked to the oil and gas industry include:
- Commercial truck accidents
- Getting struck by objects
- Chemical exposure and burns
- Rig collapse injuries
- Pipeline explosions
Many of these accidents are catastrophic, causing significant damage, serious injuries, and death. Often, these accidents are due to negligent safety standards on the production site or encouraging workers and drivers to take unsafe actions, such as working incredibly long shifts where fatigue may create dangerous situations.
No matter the type of oil and gas accident you were involved in, our team is here to help. As a top personal injury attorney in Houston, we can get you a fair payout through an insurance claim or lawsuit.
