As one of the most seasoned litigators in Austin, Texas, our lead attorney has successfully represented numerous victims of oil field explosions, drilling accidents, and other injury-causing incidents involving oil and gas operations. Our knowledge of your rights under the law, our understanding of the energy sector, and how both of these influence your oil field accident case can help us generate the best possible outcome for our clients.

Dedicated to Helping Injured Workers & Their Families

The oil and gas industry is arguably one of the most lucrative fields of employment. In fact, Texas was the site of the first boom of oil and gas extraction once oil was discovered. Today, Texas is still one of the top oil-producing states in the world and is known around the globe as one of the most profitable locations for oil and gas extraction.

The energy sector in Texas provides many employment opportunities for hardworking Americans residing in Austin, Houston, Beaumont, and surrounding areas. Though safety of its employees is one of the primary concerns in the hazardous industry, serious accidents can still occur when employers or oil field operators value profit over abiding by safety regulations.

Common oil field accidents can include:

  • Oil rig failure, collapse, explosion, or blowout
  • Water truck accidents or explosions
  • Industrial machinery failure, leading to electrocution, fire, or explosion
  • Workers getting struck, crushed, or killed by vehicles or industrial machinery
  • Failure to impose or recognize safety standards
  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration violations
  • Negligent drilling, operation, or maintenance, leading to blow-ins, explosions, or collapse

Many injured oil workers or surviving family members come to our office during a turning point in their lives. We understand how devastated you may be and can assure you that we handle every case personally as if it were our very own. You deserve nothing but respect and privacy during this time, and we wish to represent you effectively and wholeheartedly.
