Oil Field Accidents

Due to the fast pace of the oil and gas well drilling activity in the United States, and particularly in Texas, the numbers of oilfield accidents and oil field-related injuries and deaths happen at an alarming rate. Many of these oilfield injuries are catastrophic due to the nature of the dangerous work involved.

Oilfield workers are often forced to work long periods of time without adequate rest, forced to take chances in the spirit of being a team player, forced to work with some workers that are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, work beside oilfield workers that often take short cuts and ignore established safety standards in order to keep the drilling rig operating at a fast, high profit rate.

The Buzbee Law Firm is proud to represent working people and we have represented several workers injured during onshore and offshore drilling operations.
