Were You Injured In An Oilfield Accident in Beaumont?
At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Beaumont oil rig explosion lawyers know how important the industry is to the entire state of Texas, and the rest of the country. Here, however, is where its journey began. On January 10, 1901, a well at Spindletop — an oil field located in the southern portion of Beaumont, Texas — struck oil, and its discovery led the United States into the oil age.
Over 120 years later, Texas is, by far, the leading oil and gas-producing state in the country, netting a total of 1.7 billion barrels last year alone. Like most industries where a significant volume of a good is produced in one state, the accidents, injuries, and fatalities that occur in these professions also lead the nation.
Our Jefferson County oil rig accident and injury attorneys know this is an inherently dangerous industry for more than just well workers, but engineers, plant operators, and support staff. This is why significant safety regulations and guidelines are in place. Unfortunately, when just one person overlooks these protocols, people are going to get hurt or killed as a result.
At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our oil rig explosion attorneys know that thousands of our Texas residents rely on their jobs in the petroleum and gas industry to support their livelihoods.
