Gulf Coast Oil and Gas Worker Injury Lawyers
OSHA Violations | Failure to Take Adequate Safety Precautions | Violation of Safety Regulations
Because of concerns about the safety of workers on an oil and gas exploration or drilling site, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has strict regulations governing what owners and operators must do to provide a safe environment for employees on these jobs. Though many drilling companies pay close attention to safety requirements, too often OSHA regulations are neglected, ignored or simply disregarded, making these worksites extremely dangerous. If you or someone you love has been hurt on an oil and gas site because of poor safety precautions or because safety regulations were ignored, the attorneys at Bailey & Galyen can help.
At Bailey & Galyen, we have aggressively protected the rights of injured workers for more than a quarter of a century, including people hurt on oil and gas drilling or exploration sites. When you hire us to help you seek damages for a work-related injury, we will start by conducting a thorough investigation of what happened, traveling to the scene of your accident, if necessary. We will bring in expert witnesses, when appropriate, including engineers, geologists, medical professionals and financial planners, so that we can put together the strongest case for your full financial recovery.
