Texas is home to many in the oil and energy industries. Oil has proven to be a great source of employment for our state over the years. It must be understood, however, that such type of work is often performed in dangerous and hazardous conditions.

If you or a loved one have been injured in an oil-related accident then contact our Austin injury lawyers today. Our attorneys are ready to assist you.
Oil field related injuries may occur in a number ways. It may be that equipment was not properly maintained, that the company was negligent, or that another employee created a dangerous situation. Such danger may result in fires, explosions, toxic exposure, and other such situations. If one has been injured in such a situation then they should contact counsel immediately. An attorney may be able to seal the scene of the accident so that it is preserved for investigation. Experts will be retained to investigate the scene and render an opinion of what happened. In serious injury cases then it will be necessary to secure medical, and possibly vocational, experts as well. Hiring an attorney with the resources necessary to handle such a matter is crucial.
