Texas Oil and Gas Rig Fire Injuries
Oil and Gas Fires | Pipeline Fires | Drilling Rig Fires
The owner or operator of an oil and gas operation has a legal duty to use reasonable care to prevent the highly volatile gases and vapors present from igniting. Unfortunately, as companies push to increase production and maximize profits, workers often neglect to take the necessary steps to minimize the likelihood of a fire. With large quantities of highly flammable substances onsite, a small fire can rapidly get out of control, leading to serious injury and even death. If you or someone you love has suffered burns or has been hurt in any way in a fire at an oil or gas operation, our attorneys can help.

We take an aggressive approach, immediately initiating a comprehensive investigation of the facts and circumstances of your accident. We work closely with a wide range of experts, including engineers, geologists, medical professionals and financial planners, so that we can build the strongest case for your full financial recovery.
