Oil Rig Accident Lawyers
Our lawyers help the injured in Bryan, College Station, Waco, Midland or Odessa
Many people are employed in the oil industry in Texas, but it’s dangerous work. Negligence can easily lead to an accident that leaves people seriously injured. Recovering financial compensation can be complicated. That’s why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer who can fight for your rights.
At Chad Jones Law, P.C., we know the impact an oil rig injury can have on workers and their families. Injuries can include broken bones, spinal cord injuries, burns and injuries to the neck, head or back. Recovery can take months or even longer. Some workers are left with a permanent disability.
Dealing with insurance companies can be difficult after an oil rig accident. That’s because they know there’s a lot of money at stake. They will try to pay you as little as possible. They have lawyers who help them find ways to justify limiting your compensation. Our experienced attorneys know how to build strong cases that insurance companies must take seriously.

Accidents that can leave workers injured include:
- Falls from heights
- Explosions (drilling wells or pipelines)
- Collapsed rigs
- Falling debris (cables, drill strings, etc.)
- Oil truck crashes
- Defective machinery injuries
- Toxic fumes exposure
In Texas, employers are not required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If you were hurt while working for an employer that does not carry it, our lawyers can help you file a non-subscriber claim to recover compensation. We also help workers who have been injured in an accident caused by a third party. Third parties can include contractors and manufacturers.
Our firm has been helping the injured for more than 20 years. We have the experience and the resources to handle complex cases involving oil rig accidents. Our legal team investigates your accident to get the facts.
We carefully review accident reports, as well as previous inspections by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We read medical reports to learn the true extent of your injuries. We identify and interview witnesses, and we often consult experts who can help us understand how the accident happened.
We know how to get results
Our lawyers also determine the total damages you have suffered as a result of the accident and demand compensation. This often includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to your injuries. It includes lost wages if you were left unable to work. We may also seek compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering.
If you were hurt in an oil rig accident in Bryan, College Station, Waco, Midland or Odessa, or anywhere else in Texas, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible to make sure your rights are protected.
