Our oil rig explosion attorneys are privileged to assist injured offshore and maritime workers throughout the United States with a focus in Texas and Louisiana. Oil and gas employees and other maritime workers working offshore are often exposed to dangerous working conditions that can lead to oil rig explosions and fires. From malfunctions on oil rigs to maintenance issues with vessels and land-based machinery, it is frightening to think about just how many risks offshore and maritime workers truly face on a day-to-day basis.
Unfortunately, these risks too often lead to life-changing and fatal accidents. While many oil rig explosions and fires are the tragic result of bottom-line thinking at the oil and gas companies, many more result from simple mistakes and unexpected equipment failures. From electrical issues to massive oil spills, there are countless dangers that can change people’s lives forever in the blink of an eye.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or tragically killed in an oil rig explosion or oilfield accident, you should contact our experienced oil rig attorney for a free, confidential consultation to discuss your legal rights as soon as possible before they are jeopardized by an employer or insurance company.
