Midland Odessa TX Gas Pipeline Explosion Accidents
Our Texas attorneys fight for injured pipeline workers
Oil and natural gas pipeline explosions in Midland, Odessa and other parts of Texas often cause serious injuries or even fatalities. That’s because these powerful explosions often occur without warning. Such oil rig and well accidents also often happen in remote areas far from hospitals and emergency medical care.
That’s why it’s critical that oil and gas corporations operating in the Permian Basin (which includes Midland Basin, Val Verde Basin, Delaware Basin and Kerr Basin) and other oil and natural gas deposits in Texas take precautions to prevent pipeline explosions from occurring.
Many large oil and gas corporations work in the Permian Basin. Some of the largest ones include:
- Occidental Petroleum
- Exxon Mobil
- Concho Resources
- Kinder Morgan
- Navitas Midstream Partners
- Pioneer Natural Resources
Unfortunately, some companies cut corners and put profits ahead of safety. That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced Texas pipeline explosion attorney on your side. That’s why you need the Herrera Law Firm working for you. We know the area and know what needs to be done to protect the rights of injured oil and gas workers in Midland County and throughout Texas.

What are common pipeline explosion injuries?
When oil or gas pipelines explode, injuries sustained by roustabouts, roughnecks and other oil and gas field workers can be severe or even fatal. Some of the most common – and most serious – injuries sustained by people working on oil and gas pipelines include:
- Severe burn injuries
- Broken bones
- Blindness/loss of sight
- Deafness/ loss of hearing
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Head injuries
All of these injuries and many more can have life-changing consequences. In an instant, you or a loved one might not be able to work for weeks, months or perhaps ever again due to such severe injuries. Many of these injuries require immediate medical care and surgical procedures. You might also need physical therapy for months or even years. And during your recovery period, you need time to rest and recuperate.
All of the expenses and bills associated with such treatment and recovery time can quickly add up to thousands or millions of dollars. That’s why it’s important that you have a lawyer on your side who understands how the legal system works in Texas and can demand the compensation you deserve. That’s why you need us, working for you.
