Oil and Gas Site Accident Injury Lawyers in Texas
Failure to Maintain Pipelines | Leaking Meters or Mains | Corrosion or Metal Fatigue | Defective Valves or Connectors
Though oil and gas drilling and exploration sites have a reputation for being extremely dangerous workplaces, the reality is that many of the injuries suffered there can be avoided, especially accidents caused by negligent maintenance of tools, machinery or equipment. In an effort to minimize costs, as well as time, rig owners and operators often cut corners, either performing substandard maintenance or neglecting maintenance altogether. The results have been and will continue to be disastrous. If you or a family member has been hurt in an accident at an oil and gas operation because of improper maintenance of equipment, we can help.
At Bailey & Galyen, we bring 40 years of experience to personal injury victims in Texas, including people hurt because of negligent or careless maintenance of oil and gas drilling equipment. We provide full-service legal counsel, taking the time to carefully investigate the facts and circumstances of your accident. If necessary, we will bring in expert witnesses, such as engineers or geologists, financial professionals or medical personnel, to put together the most compelling arguments for your full financial recovery.
