Herrman & Herrman – Texas Oil Field Law Firm
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 oil worker injury 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.
Eagle Ford Shale Accidents: Causes of Oil Field Accidents
Oil field and oil drilling accidents on the Eagle Ford Shale may be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Unqualified and improperly trained workers
- Defective machinery
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Insufficient equipment maintenance
- Lack of proper safety devices
- Negligence during the operation of machinery and other devices.
When worker safety is overlooked in order to increase profits, it can have devastating results, including burns, neck and back injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. In the worst cases, these accidents can result in death.
