Dallas Oilfield Work Accident Attorneys
Protecting Workers’ Rights in the Oil & Gas Industries
An injured worker is usually covered by workers' comp, but Texas law does not require employers to carry workers' compensation insurance. That means that if you or a family member has been injured in a pipeline explosion, an oil truck accident, or from defective equipment, you may have to fight to get damages.
At Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, you are not just an injured worker; you are a person who is fighting to recover your health and your livelihood and to protect your family's financial well-being in the face of great difficulties. Our Dallas oilfield accident attorneys have handled cases like yours before and achieved successful results for clients with severe burn injuries from oilfield and gas line explosions. We also handle wrongful death claims on behalf of families.

It's vitally important that you work with a lawyer who understands your options for financial recovery.

We represent workers injured by:
- Oil rig accidents
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Unsafe workplace conditions

Understanding the Causes of Oilfield Injuries
Many of the oilfield and gas line explosions we've handled involve high-pressure lines in which equipment failed and gave way, or a component of the line was improperly designed and could not hold the pressure of the line. If there is an oil or natural gas leak, any nearby spark will set off a flash fire. Workers can also be injured when parts blow off a line and hit an employee.
When equipment failure causes the leak or explosion, the manufacturer can be held accountable. If the problem was improper installation of the part or poor maintenance, then the installer or service company can be held responsible. If you have a case, we are ready to provide the aggressive, effective representation that will help you get justice and compensation.
