Oil and Gas Accident Lawyer in Austin
Employment in the oil and gas industry is very appealing because of the high pay the sector offers. Because of this, and the increasing market demand, the number of oil workers has grown steadily during the last decade. Unfortunately, oil fields are dangerous places. According to the CDC, the fatality rate for U.S. oil and gas workers is about seven times the average for all occupations. According to an analysis performed by Houston Chronicle, between 2007 and 2011, more workers died due to a workplace accident in the oil and gas industry than in any other industry in Texas. High injury rates are seen in all sectors of the oil and gas industry, including drilling, production and transportation.
Injuries that are sustained in oil and gas field accidents are often much more severe than in other industry sectors, in many cases leading to lengthy recovery times. Therefore, if you work in the oil and gas industry, your employer should be taking steps to prevent these workplace accidents. If you’ve been injured while working in the oil field because of poor safety standards, unsafe working conditions or equipment failure, you should call an experienced personal injury trial attorney.
I was really lost concerning the legal process. Paul was very patient with me and answered all my questions. Thanks Paul for the great job. I might be a bit banged up but at least I am a lot richer now. Oh, also I had heard lawsuits take years. I had my money in less than 8 months. You can’t get a better lawyer.George Jr.
