Experienced Attorneys Helping People Injured in Gas Explosions and Oil Accidents

Personal injury trial lawyers talk about holding people or corporations accountable for negligence. Negligence simply means poor behavior that falls below acceptable standards for any given activity. In the oil and gas industry, negligence often stems from a gas company’s disregard for proper safety precautions. When adequate measures are not taken, gas lines rupture or pipelines explode, burning innocent people. When worker safety is disregarded, oil workers fall from oil rigs and are injured in explosions.

With all our years of practice, we know that oil and gas accidents happen for the same reasons other accidents happen — because of poor or reckless behavior.

How Oil and Gas Accidents Injure Innocent Bystanders and Workers

As personal injury attorneys, our job is to hold other people or corporations accountable for their carelessness. In the oil and gas industry, accidents can happen in a variety ways, and when they do, the injuries are usually substantial.

Workers in the energy industry are constantly put in dangerous situations. They can be hurt in any number of ways, including dangerous falls from oil rigs and falling objects or equipment. But often times accidents not only injure oil and gas workers, they can also harm families living near a gas line or oil refinery. Leaks and explosions can injure bystanders and workers when defective equipment is being used, adequate safety precautions are not in place or equipment and facilities are not properly maintained. Increased commercial vehicle traffic near oil fields and drilling sites leads to increased trucking and car accidents that can injure workers and motorists.
