Oil Field Accidents & Explosions

Oil Field Accident & Explosion Attorney

Were you injured while working on the Eagle Ford Shale?

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an oil field accident or while working on the Eagle Ford Shale, you can take legal action with the help of an Austin personal injury attorney from The Daspit Law Firm. Our lead attorney, John Daspit, has years of experience as a former defense lawyer working for Fulbright & Jaworski, which is known as one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in the world. Additionally, Attorney Daspit has spent thousands of hours working on high-profile litigation matters, including the post-BP refinery explosion in 2005.

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.

  • What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm!

    “What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm! While on vacation a few months ago I had the misfortune of being hit from behind while driving back from Austin. I had several back and neck problems caused by the accident. After the insurance company of the driver did not cover my expenses only weeks after the accident I then called Daspit Law Firm. Best decision I ever made! They not only got all of my medical visits taken care of, but I also received extra for my time lost from my job! I will definitely recommend the team at the Daspit Law Firm.”
