In Texas and the Gulf Coast, drilling for oil and gas is extremely common. With that constant activity to meet the high demand for these natural resources, worker safety is sometimes overlooked in the name of profits. Accidents can happen in oil fields and on drilling rigs that cause serious injuries to workers, many of whom are not trained or supervised properly. Oil companies should be held accountable for their failure to protect employees from harm.
At Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., we represent individuals who work on drilling rigs and in oil fields throughout Texas. Our attorneys have been helping injured workers for almost two decades with their personal injury claims. They have a comprehensive knowledge of the laws that impact these claims and the complexities of cases that involve injured or killed workers in oil drilling accidents.
