Drilling Rig Blowout Injury Lawyers in Texas
Hydro-Fracking Blowouts | Failure to Monitor Well Site Pressure | Failure to Maintain or Repair Equipment | Negligent Hiring, Training or Supervision
In an oil-drilling operation, when you tap into a high-pressure zone, the oil can travel to the surface with great force, leading to serious and catastrophic injury, and even death. However, with the proper precautions, these “blowouts” can be anticipated and prevented. Unfortunately, in the rush to increase production and profits, many oil and gas companies either fail to employ blowout preventers, or fail to take reasonable steps to monitor for and respond to increased likelihood of a blowout. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a blowout on a drilling rig, we can help.
We have more than a quarter of a century of legal experience to people who have suffered personal injuries in Texas, including workers hurt in accidents in the oil and gas industry. We aggressively investigate every aspect of your accident, traveling to the scene of the blowout, if necessary. We will also listen carefully to learn what you need to move forward, so that we can help you make the best decisions to get the outcome you want. We know how complicated oil and gas rig injury claims can be, and work with an experienced team of expert witnesses, including engineers, geologists, medical professionals and financial planners, to put together the strongest case for your full financial recovery.
