Motor Vehicle Accidents at Oil and Gas Drilling Sites | Truck or Car Accidents Involving Oil and Gas Workers
According to a recent study by the CDC, oil and gas workers are nearly ten times as likely to die or be seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident on the job as people who work in any other profession. The study, conducted between 2003 and 2009, found that almost one-third of all work-related deaths in the oil and gas industry were caused by motor vehicle accidents. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a car or truck accident while working on an oil and gas drilling site or for an oil and gas operation, we can help.
At Bailey & Galyen, our lawyers bring more than a quarter of a century of legal experience to people in Texas and across the Gulf Coast who have been hurt in a motor vehicle accident while working in the oil and gas industry. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding your injury, traveling to the scene of your accident, if necessary. When appropriate, we will bring in expert witnesses, including engineers, geologists, medical professionals and financial planners, so that the judge and jury have a clear understanding of what happened, as well as how it has affected you.
