Oilfield injuries will likely increase. You need someone on your side.

As the industry rebounds from the longest and hardest downturn in the recent history, rigs and equipment that have been stacked or mothballed will be fired up again. Inexperienced workers will be improperly trained and promoted. Crews will be rushed to make money. Poor maintenance practices will be revealed.

All of these things will lead to significant injury or death for too many workers.

Act now to protect your legal rights.

If you or a loved one has been injured in the oilfield, you should consult with our oilfield accident attorney to discuss your legal rights.
