Oil and Gas Property Damage Trial Lawyers
When a gas leak goes ignored by the utility company, a pipeline could explode, destroying a residential neighborhood and damaging dozens of homes — like the San Bruno explosion. Unfixed safety problems on an offshore drilling rig can cause a major blowout that cannot be stopped, resulting in a catastrophic oil spill — like the Deepwater Horizon disaster. And scientists warn of groundwater contamination and environmental damage from hydro fracking, yet hydro fracking continues unfettered throughout the United States, including in Texas, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, West Virginia and Ohio.
All of these situations and more have caused and will continue to cause serious oil and gas property damage.

Our Oil and Gas Property Damage Practice
Much of our law practice involves helping people injured in all types of oil and gas accidents, from pipeline explosions and propane fires to chemical plant accidents and drilling rig blowouts. Part of this practice involves handling the “fallout” after an oil or gas accident, including:
- Environmental damage
- Water and ground contamination
- Destruction of property
But property damage from an oil and gas accident is not limited to those items above. For example, the massive oil spills after the Deepwater Horizon disaster put fishermen and local restaurants and hotels (all of which depend on tourism to survive) at serious risk, causing a temporary but substantial disruption in business.
