Oilfield Accidents

The high-risk nature in the drilling of crude oil, shale oil, gas and other minerals puts hard-working Texas residents at risk of serious injuries. If an accident does occur, medical benefits and financial compensation are often denied and employers' doctors claim fitness to work when the opposite is true. Even when a settlement is offered, the amount does not come close to reflecting the medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

At Davie, Valdez & McElroy, P.C., our industry-recognized and award-winning lawyers fight to even the odds our clients face when negligence results in serious injuries and death.

Protecting The Rights Of Texas Oil Rig Workers

Increased oil production in Texas has led to an increase in drilling rig accidents and the severity of the injuries suffered by workers. Equipment fails when pressure builds up from various types of extraction, including hydraulic fracking. Production is fast-paced in a work environment that lacks the proper safeguards to protect employees.

It goes without saying that oil production is already a dangerous line of work. When the safety of workers comes second to profits, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements are not enforced and workers suffer injuries that range from severe burns to loss of limbs to life-threatening internal injuries.

Simply stated, we will see all injury cases through until the end, regardless of how we find that end. In fact, our willingness to try cases combined with our trial skills are well-known throughout the legal community. Oftentimes, that reputation helps to facilitate settlement talks. Regardless of the venue, we pursue maximum compensation based on your immediate and long-term needs.
