San Antonio Oilfield Accident Lawyer
The booming oil and gas industry in Texas and the growing use of hydraulic fracking have brought a lot of jobs to Texas. However, one downside to this growing industry is that the work is dangerous, and moves at a fast pace. When you combine the fast-paced, difficult, and exhausting nature of oilfield work with the heavy equipment and machinery used in the oilfield, it can be a recipe for accidents that lead to serious injury, and sometimes even death.
We are thankful for the men and women who put their lives on the line in the oilfield, and believe that they should have the best training, work conditions, and equipment as possible to do their jobs, and protect them against injury. However, sadly, this doesn’t always happen. All too often, oil companies, or the service companies they contract with, put profits over safety, which often leads to unsafe working conditions or faulty equipment. When oil companies put profits over workers, accidents occur, often with catastrophic consequences.

The Dangers of Oilfield Work Leads to Serious Accidents & Catastrophic Injuries
When oil companies and their service contractors operate their drilling sites around the clock, they can make huge profits. However, these round the clock operations often call for long hours, cramped working conditions, and fatigue. When you combine these conditions with heavy equipment, dangerous machinery, and commercial transport vehicles, it can be the recipe for serious injury. This is especially true when drilling companies cut corners and neglect safety, maintenance, and training. Additionally, there are a lot of different parties involved in drilling and oil exploration operations, including:
- Oil Companies
- Drill Operators
- Equipment rental companies
- Truck Drivers
- Machine operators
- Oil pumpers
- Saltwater disposal facilities
- Refinery Work
- Exploration companies
There are a lot of different ways that oilfield workers are injured, and a lot of different companies that may be responsible. When these companies or their employees are negligent, and others are injured, it’s only right that the responsible parties be held accountable. However, in most cases injured workers find themselves in a fight with their employer or the greedy insurance companies that will do anything to pay injured workers as little as possible.
Don’t Get Hurt Again by Greedy Insurance Company Tactics
Sadly, when the men and women who work in the oilfield are injured, they often get hurt again by their company or greedy insurance companies who want nothing more than to pay them nothing for their injuries.
Insurance companies make billions of dollars every year by not paying claims that they should, and by treating injured victims unfairly. Insurance company greed knows no bounds, and they will do almost anything they can to pay you as little as possible after an accident.
