Oil and Gas Field, Drilling, Completion, Work-Over, Industrial, Mining and Pipeline Accident Cases

Oil and gas drilling, completion, and work over along with mining and other industrial jobs are dangerous, fast-paced professions with a lot dangerous equipment and working conditions. It takes a tough and dedicated person to work long hours near large, complex equipment in these demanding conditions.  Especially during boom conditions, extraction of minerals, oil and gas cannot happen fast enough and safety more often than not takes a back seat to getting the job done.

  • Drilling Rig and Work-over Rig accidents and explosions
  • Accidents during the completion process

Drilling and workover operations usually involve numerous parties and contractors, and liability can sometimes stretch from the top oil and gas company or contractor all the way down to the lowest subcontractor or service provider.  It’s important to have a law firm with the experience in this area of work to navigate through the parties and through the written and sometimes unwritten agreements and find out who was responsible for what.  If you are injured and the liable party is your own company, there is a chance your co-workers could be held accountable if they acted in a reckless, willful, wanton or intentional manner.  Additionally, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation or social security disability. If you are injured and the company or person responsible is not your employer, you may be entitled to be compensated for your damages.
