Oil Rig Injury Attorney
Handling Oil Field Injury Claims Nationwide
There are an abundance of oil rigs located throughout our country primarily in places like Texas and other Gulf states, and the oil industry hires many workers to man the numerous types of jobs that are conducted on these oil rigs. While the oil and gas industry is a lucrative business, it is also an inherently dangerous job which can lead to severe injuries. Statistics show that when an oil worker is injured, the severity and duration of the injuries are far worse than in other industry sectors, and recovery times are twice as long.
Employers are required to take extensive safety precautions, but nevertheless accidents still happen. Workers can suffer injury when there are inadequate safety precautions taken, lack of maintenance on equipment, errors in drilling procedures and improper training overall. Some accidents occur because workers are required to work long periods of time without enough rest, and new legislation has been passed to ensure that employers face legal responsibility when this occurs. Here at
Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher & Perry, we are intimately familiar with the legislation that provides rights for oil rig workers, and we can protect your rights.

Seeking Compensation for Oil Rig Injuries
The oil industry is notorious for its unsafe work conditions and the devastating injuries that can be suffered by workers when something goes awry.

The types of severe injuries that can result from a work accident include such as burn injuries,
loss of sight,
loss of hearing,
