Few jobs are more dangerous than drilling for oil. Unfortunately, the number of oil field drilling accidents has increased. Limited resources have caused oil and gas production companies to cut corners and push workers beyond their limits often with little training, few rest breaks or poor equipment. This high-risk work environment has led to many work-related accidents.

Since 1962, the Edwards Law Firm has advocated for thousands of injured workers and their families. We have extensive experience helping injured workers secure a full financial recovery.

Handling Oil Field Accident Injury Claims in Corpus Christi, Texas
At the Edwards Law Firm, we provide a strong voice to workers injured at oil fields throughout Texas. We understand the dangerous conditions mud loggers, crane operators, welders and pipeline operators face on a daily basis. Working in a fast-paced environment often with little training or safety equipment can lead to catastrophic and life-threatening work-related oil field accidents such as:
- Oil drilling rig accidents
- Oil field and drilling rig accidents
- Oil pipeline accidents
- Oil refinery accidents
- Well blowouts
- Explosions and fires
- Scaffolding collapses
- Equipment failures and defective products
- Defective drilling rigs
- Commercial truck collisions
Our firm's legal team has decades of experience helping injured workers secure a full financial recovery for work-related injuries such as severe burns, head injuries, neck and back injuries, loss of limbs, chemical exposure and other temporary or permanent injuries.
Workers' compensation is designed to provide injured workers with a safety net, regardless of fault. In return, injured workers generally cannot sue their employer for additional compensation. This is a highly complicated area of the law. The level of benefits you can obtain depends on the extent of work-related injuries you have endured. Our job is to protect your rights at every corner to ensure you obtain the full amount of benefits you are entitled to receive.
At the Edwards Law Firm, we take our work a step further. If a third party such as a contractor, subcontractor or manufacturer can be held responsible for causing the oil field accident that injured you, we will help you sue the at-fault party through a civil lawsuit. This would be an opportunity for you to recover compensation above a workers' compensation claim for any medical expenses, lost wages or pain and suffering you endured.
