Texas Oil and Gas Site Injury Lawyers-Falling Objects on a Site
Far too often, owners and operators of oil and gas drilling/exploration companies fail to take reasonable precautions to prevent workers from being struck by falling objects. Harnesses, netting or other barriers that would cost-effectively protect workers simply don’t get used.
Our attorneys handle all types of claims involving injuries caused by falling objects on a drilling site, including cases involving:
- Failure to use appropriate safety equipment to prevent falling objects
- Failure to monitor, supervise or train employees to avoid acts that pose a significant risk of injury
We will help you seek monetary damages for lost wages or income, for any unreimbursed medical expenses, for your loss of companionship or consortium, and for your physical pain and suffering. We take cases involving all types of serious or catastrophic loss, including brain or spinal cord injury, broken bones, paralysis, burns, permanent scarring or disfigurement, and amputation or loss of limb. We also handle wrongful death claims.
Personal injury lawsuits are complicated and expensive to mount and that is why we take all cases on contingency, meaning there is never a fee until we recover a settlement in your favor.
