The Dangers of Oil Rig FallsHouston Legal News
Dealing with the Aftermath of an Oil Rig Accident
Workers laboring on an oil and gas drilling or exploration site find themselves performing many tasks — often from elevated heights. Falls are one of the leading causes of death in the oil and gas industry. If the owner or operator of the site fails to take proper measures to provide for worker safety, they can be placed in danger of suffering serious injuries due to a fall from a rig or other height. If you or someone close to you has been injured in a fall at an oil or gas drilling site, our legal team is here to help. Personal injury lawsuits in Houston are complicated and expensive to pursue, and that’s why we at Connolly Law take on cases to help those suffering due to the negligence of a big oil and gas company.
We take a bold approach to every single case. We move quickly to ensure that we fully investigate the incident to find out what happened and the full extent of the resulting injuries. When applicable, we will visit the scene of the accident so that we have a complete understanding of the circumstances of the case. We understand that accidents occurring at oil and gas sites can be complicated, so we work with expert witnesses, such as engineers, geologists, medical professionals, and financial planners so that we can create the strongest case for your financial recovery.
