An oil rig accident may be the result of a company pressuring workers to work long periods of strenuous labor without adequate rest. In South Texas, Eagle Ford Shale accidents are not uncommon, as oil companies sometimes put production and profits ahead of safety. They may be compelled to ignore proper safety procedures in an effort to work faster. Our oil rig accident attorneys in San Antonio understand how to put our resources and experience to work in any type of oil field accident.

If you think oil industry accidents are rare, think again. According to the Houston Chronicle, there were more deaths in the oil and gas field industry than in any other occupation. The newspaper based its analysis on five years of fatal accidents investigated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

While workplace accident deaths overall declined in Texas, oil field fatalities happened at an alarming rate over a recent period. An average of 39 people per year died between 2007 and 2011.
