In the 1930s, Smith County emerged as the regional center of the oil and gas industry, and oil production remains an important aspect of our community’s economy and identity. Working in the oilfield is particularly dangerous work, and when injuries or deaths are caused by the negligence or wrongful act of others, Texas law provides for recovery based on personal injury or wrongful death. As attorneys born and raised in Texas, we understand how the oil industry operates, and the importance of protecting those who risk life and limb working in the field.
Common accidents associated with the oilfield are explosions, falling objects, gas leaks, well blowouts and gushers, and collapsing decks and work rigs. Parties responsible for such mishaps may include employers and third parties not directly connected to one’s employer. Oil companies rarely own the property that they drill on; rather, they enter leases or deeds with property owners that temporarily allow companies to occupy land and seek oil. Therefore, oilfield workers are often injured on property that is not owned by their employers. If a property owner fails to inspect his or her premises for dangerous conditions, fails to make repairs, or neglects to provide adequate warning to others, he or she may be liable to persons injured on the unsafe property. Our attorneys possess the requisite knowledge of the law and personal injury claims to identify every potentially liable party.
Texas law provides for recovery-based injuries or wrongful death due to the negligence or wrongful acts of others. If you find yourself injured from an oilfield field accident or have lost a loved one due to negligence of another party, discuss your case with us before letting heated emotions cause more damages. Due to the hazardous work environment, replete with heavy machinery and inherently dangerous tasks, oilfield injuries may be catastrophic and life changing.
