Types Of Cases We Handle
Over the decades, our lawyers have handled numerous oil and gas accident cases. We have helped workers injured in refinery plant fires - such as the explosion at the BP facility in Texas City in 2005. We have also represented individuals whose homes were destroyed in natural gas explosions.
Today, we help clients dealing with the aftermath of:
- Oil refinery accidents, including refinery negligence
- Oil and gas field accidents
- Offshore injuries
- Oil rig explosions
- Pipeline explosions
- Propane fires and explosions
- Gas leaks
- Falls from oil rigs
- Falling objects from rigs and drilling platforms
- Ship channel accidents
- Hydro fracking and shale oil accidents
- Defective equipment or equipment that is improperly maintained
- Accidents involving trucks traveling to and from oil fields and drilling sites
Many other oil- and gas-related incidents can happen in the home, causing injury and death from fires and explosions from defective gas appliances.
Additionally, Barnett Shale and Eagle Ford Shale Texas accidents and injuries have become more and more common as horizontal drilling and fracking have helped drive the oil and gas boom in Texas.
When A Third Party Is Responsible For Your Accident
Injured workers may be covered by workers' compensation. However, many injuries and deaths are caused by the negligence of contractors. For instance, if you were injured due to the negligence of another company or one of its employees, you are entitled to recover compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
Assessing Responsibility For Petrochemical and Refinery Accidents
Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of federal and state regulations that govern the manufacture and storage of petrochemicals, liquid petroleum, oil, industrial chemicals and natural gas.
In addition, our firm is familiar with the Chemical Safety Board (CSB) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines associated with the petrochemical and refinery industries.
These are essential qualifications for assessing responsibility and preparing cases against all of the parties who may be responsible for an industrial accident.
