Texas Offshore Rig Injury Lawyers
The explosion of the Deepwater Horizon and the aftermath of the BP oil spill into the Gulf of Mexico have brought unprecedented attention to offshore oil drilling. Nearly lost in many news reports about the catastrophic impact of the spill and the involvement of BP, TransOcean and other corporations were the immediate consequences of the explosion: the tragic deaths of 11 workers thrown from this offshore oil rig.
Our experienced Gulf Coast offshore oil accident lawyers have in-depth knowledge of the oil exploration industry and the dangers faced by rig workers in an environment that combines massive equipment, risky job duties and long work hours. When an accident occurs, it may mean the loss of a career and substantial income – or even a tragic fatality.

We are adept at leading investigations of offshore oil accidents and exposing the negligence that led to a wrongful death or severe injuries including burns; head and brain injuries; spinal, neck and back injuries; and loss of limb by amputation.
