Skilled Louisiana Oil Field Equipment Accident Lawyer

Given that oil fields are dangerous places to work, oil field accidents occur with some regularity. In some cases, oil field accidents are caused by negligence, such as improper training or employees misusing equipment (using equipment for something other than its intended use). In other instances, oil field accidents can be caused by defective equipment, including the following:

  • Derricks
  • Slips
  • Blow out preventers
  • Tongs
  • Christmas trees and valves
  • Cranes
  • Jack-up legs
  • Spud hoists
  • Texas deck
  • Manholes
  • Grating
  • Stairs/ladders
  • Swing lines

Defective equipment can directly injure you, or indirectly injure you by causing an explosion or collapsing a structure or well. No matter what the cause of your oil field accident, our lawyers have the experience and understanding of oil field injury claims to provide you with the aggressive and knowledgeable representation you seek.
