Oil & Gas Injuries

Houston Oilfield Accident Attorneys

If you were injured in an oilfield accident, you need the Houston oilfield accident attorneys at The Ammons Law Firm to bring a workplace accident claim against the wrongdoer on your behalf. Offshore oil rig workers, oil field workers, and others in the gas and oil industry face a number of risks every day they are on the job. Often working 12-hour or longer shifts, these workers are at high risk for fatigue-related accidents and injuries. Extreme weather conditions and inherently dangerous work also add to the high potential of oil and gas-related accidents—often with devastating consequences.

At The Ammons Law Firm, our oilfield accident attorneys have over 100 years of combined legal experience, including considerable experience representing injured oil and gas workers and the families of those killed in oil and gas accidents. We understand this niche area of law, as well as the complex regulations that govern oil and gas companies. If an employer or another party was negligent or violated safety standards, leading to your injuries or the death of your loved one, our oil and gas injury lawyers can help.

Common Oil & Gas Accidents & Injuries

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are approximately 27 fatalities for every 100,000 oil and gas workers, and countless other workers are seriously injured. Why is the injury and death rate so high in this industry?

There are many factors that make the oil and gas industry an inherently risky one for workers. The very nature of the work itself, long work hours, the use of dangerous machines and heavy equipment, and various weather events all play a role. Unfortunately, so does negligence. When workers and employers fail to follow proper safety protocols, catastrophic accidents can happen.

Some of the most common oil and gas accidents include:

  • Fires and explosions
  • Defective machinery and equipment
  • Transportation accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Offshore Accidents
  • Exposure to harmful/toxic substances
  • Faulty tools

Oilfield accidents often lead to devastating injuries, including but not limited to the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burns
  • Crush injuries
  • Accidental amputation
  • Drowning
  • Broken bones
  • Severe lacerations and abrasions
  • Internal organ damage
  • Long-term illness

In many cases, these injuries prove fatal, and families are left to pick up the pieces. At The Ammons Law Firm, we believe that no one should have to fear being injured or killed in the workplace. Our oil and gas injury lawyers are committed to fighting for justice and recovery on behalf of those affected by devastating oil and gas accidents.
