Passionately Pursuing Justice for the Injured

Houston Oil Field Accidents and Explosions

Representing Injured Oil Field Workers and Their Families in Houston

The Daspit Law Firm is well acquainted with the subject of oil field accidents. Houston, after all, is the Energy Capital of the World, with more than 5,000 energy firms doing business across Greater Houston. The city experienced its first boom after oil was discovered nearby more than 110 years ago.

One in three Americans working in the oil and gas extraction industry call Houston home. If you have been injured or lost a family member in an accident on an oil field on the Eagle Ford Shale or elsewhere, you can find help in pursuing fair compensation at our firm.

People who choose to work on the oil field do so for many reasons, chief among them being the opportunity to earn an excellent wage in an economic climate that sees many overqualified people accepting far less pay than what they truly need. The good pay comes at a price, however, with long hours and grueling labor, and in many cases, oil field workers will not see their families for days, weeks or months at a stretch.

In addition to these privations, working on the oil field also carries the very real threat of catastrophic injury and death on a daily basis. When oil field accidents happen, they very often seriously injure and maim the victims, and will frequently prove to be fatal.

Compensation for an Oil Field Accident in Houston

Oil field accidents can occur in a variety of ways, from rig collapse to blowout, motor vehicle accidents and explosions. Workers may be struck or crushed by vehicles, equipment or tools, or they may suffer severe burn injuries in a fire. Roughnecks and others are also at risk of developing occupational illness from chemical exposure at a jobsite.

The accident might be caused by careless crewmembers, by negligent supervisors, by failure to implement and enforce safety regulations, or even by defective equipment. Whether you need to sue for personal injury or wrongful death, file a workers' compensation claim or pursue a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of faulty equipment, our Houston lawyer is ready to help.
