The Eagle Ford Shale is one of the largest deposits of oil and gas resources in the United States. The field stretches across South Texas and energy companies have been working to retrieve these resources for many years. Companies frequently construct exploratory wells and other structures to help them extract and transport oil and gas to storage locations.
Unfortunately, the operation of these wells, derricks and drilling equipment is dangerous and can result in accidents with catastrophic and fatal injuries. At the law firm of Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., our lawyers represent individuals who have suffered injuries as the result of working on the Eagle Ford Shale site, as well as families of fatal oil field accidents. We have nearly two decades of experience handling personal injury claims throughout Texas.
