Oilfield and Refinery Injuries

Oilfield and Refinery Injuries

The jobs and opportunities the oil and gas industry provides to hardworking Texans should not be underestimated. On the other hand, the industry should never underestimate the men and women who work as roughnecks, tool pushers, drillers, refinery workers, and in other jobs that make these benefits possible.

I have seen the kinds of injuries that can happen in the oil and gas industry, including:

  • Blast injuries caused by fuel explosions
  • Burns from oil and gas fires
  • Impact injuries caused by moving equipment and rigging
  • Falls from equipment and storage structures
  • Chemical exposures during the refining process

When workers are injured on the job, it is not always just a worker’s comp matter. Serious oilfield and refinery injuries caused by employer negligence can destroy lives and families, and require serious compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Despite the vast sums oil companies earn, they often fail to invest in basic safety measures that could save a worker’s life and limb.

Figuring out just who is liable for an oil or gas field injury can be complicated.  Several companies may work on a single well. An employee of one company might do something that injures an employee of a second company. The drilling site might be owned by a third company. The equipment might be owned by the fourth company.

I have years of experience in pursuing claims against the oil and gas industry and their insurers, on behalf of wrongfully-injured workers and their families. We can represent you, whether you were injured in a drilling accident, burned in a refinery explosion, or crushed under heavy equipment.
