Texas Oil Rig Accident Attorneys

Gulf Coast oil field injuries and drilling rig accidents can be debilitating and workers’ compensation is almost never a sufficient remedy to get the injured person or their family back on their feet when recovering from a serious injury. Oil rig explosions, pipeline explosions, valve failures, equipment failures, gas leaks, chemical leaks, equipment collapsing, falling pipes, and crane injuries are just a few of the types of oil field accidents that can cause catastrophic injuries. These types of injures are all too common in oil and gas fields in the Gulf Coast such as Eagle Ford Shale and Haynesville Shale.

The Dwyer Law Firm handles Texas oil field accident injury claims and drilling rig injury claims as well as oil field worker injuries in other states throughout the Gulf Coast.

Causes of Drilling Rig Injuries and Oil Field Accidents

Oil field injuries can be serious or even catastrophic injuries and may be caused by one reckless act, several reckless acts or faulty equipment. Oil field injuries generally occur as a result of:

  • Defective products or defective machinery
  • Negligent operation of the rig or other oil field equipment
  • Insufficient or inadequate rig or equipment maintenance
  • Inadequate safety policies or failure to adhere to safety policies
  • Inadequately trained crew
  • Inadequate number of crew members
  • Contractor error
  • Alcohol or drug abuse.
