Who Can Be Held Liable for Texas Oil Rig Explosions, Accidents, Injuries & Fatalities?
The Texas oil and natural gas industry, directly and indirectly, supports more than 2.5 million jobs, or 13.9% of Texas’ total employment.
For every direct job in the oil and natural gas industry, an additional 3.5 jobs were created.
This means different employers or contracting companies may be liable for the employee or third party’s accidents, injuries, or fatalities.
Since Texas employers are not required to carry workers’ compensation coverage, oilfield injury victims may be eligible to pursue their employers directly for workplace injuries or the loss of their loved ones through a personal injury lawsuit.
Our skilled personal injury lawyers in San Antonio will evaluate your case during a free consultation to determine if your employer, contractor, or another third party is liable for your financial recovery.
That may include:
- Oil and gas companies
- Oilfield equipment providers
- Oilfield machinery designers or manufacturers when a defect caused the explosion
- Property owners or operators
- Contractors or subcontractors
- Trucking companies
- Shipping companies
- Vehicle manufacturers
