Laredo Oil and Gas Accident Attorney - Discover the Difference the Law Office of John R. Solis Can Make
Texas is well-known as the center of the oil and gas industry in the United States. Unfortunately, the state has also earned a reputation as one of the most dangerous for oil and gas workers. That's because every phase of oil and gas operations involves grueling work that exposes workers to dangerous conditions each day. While it's natural to expect oil and gas companies to take all necessary precautions to keep workers safe, this is not always the case.
Laredo oil and gas accident attorney John R. Solis has seen firsthand the devastating impact an oil rig, oil platform or blowout preventer accident can have on entire families. Gas or oil rig accidents are rarely minor. They often involve catastrophic injuries. Injuries or fatalities resulting from fire and explosions, toxic fume exposure or slip and fall accidents are common. Yet workers who have suffered personal injury because of the negligence of an oil or gas company find that these big companies and their insurance carriers often will stop at nothing to keep compensation to a minimum.
How do oil well accidents happen?
Oil and gas companies sometimes put profits before the safety of people. They may cut corners to make as much money as possible. That means workers are often pressured to move too quickly, work longer hours or under unsafe working conditions. Workers are forced to work with dangerous machinery or defective safety equipment. Some companies even choose to employ untrained or inexperienced workers to get the job done.
The following oil and gas operations can be especially hazardous to workers:
- Well drilling
- Well servicing, stimulation or restoration
- Hot oil operations
- Cementing and pumping operations
- Dismantling or abandonment
