Texas is no stranger to the oil industry. In fact, 1 in every 3 American oil industry workers lives in Houston, Texas. As important and widespread as this work is, it can also be exceedingly dangerous. Oil field work is very physically demanding and often presents new, surprising challenges on a daily basis, which puts workers at an especially high risk of injury. When employers fail to abide by OSHA guidelines, or if they act negligently in any way, the chances of an oil field accident or explosion increase exponentially. If you or someone you love was harmed on an oil field, make sure you take immediate action to protect your rights and secure compensation.

All oil field workers must be specially trained to ensure employee safety and decrease the chances of catastrophic accidents. Oil field workers often work long hours in harsh conditions, sometimes giving up time with their families for months on end. Even amid these demanding working conditions, it’s all too common to come across oil fields with substandard safety criteria, inadequate worker training, and poorly maintained equipment. Serious oversights like these could lead to devastating oil field accidents, including fires and explosions that can cost oil workers their lives.
Oil fields frequently use large, specialized machines and vehicles that can cause serious damage if they malfunction or are handled incorrectly. Plus, workers also face risks associated with chemical exposure, fires, and confined spaces. In fact, the 3 most common causes of fatal accidents in the oil industry are transportation incidents, equipment issues, and incidents associated with fires and explosions.

Or, if you developed a serious illness due to prolonged chemical exposure, as is common in oil fields, we can help make a case for your occupational illness.
