Kenedy Oil Fields Work Accident
The Eagle Ford Shale and related fringes that stretch from south of Floresville, thru Karnes City, Kenedy, Cuero, down to Beeville and across to Laredo and back through Cotulla, Pleasanton, Jourdanton and back to Floresville, is booming.
This Shale find has created countless jobs and opportunities that simply did not exist in this section of South Texas, just a few years ago.
However, the work on the rigs, the highway and county road traffic, the service and roughneck jobs can bring danger, mainly due to the long hours, a lack of training, improper maintenance, harsh environment and dangerous equipment.
Accidents are occurring at a staggering pace around Kenedy, Tilden and our towards Cotulla. Work injuries in the oil fields are unfortunately all too common, often resulting in catastrophic injuries or even a senseless and wrongful death —leaving a lasting effect on those left behind.
If you have been injured working on an oil field or lost a loved one, you deserve full and fair compensation.
The Carabin Shaw Law Firm offers personal attention and dedicated representation to injured oil field workers and their families. Our Law Firm can meet you in San Antonio Offices, Kenedy Offices, Beeville Offices, Victoria Offices or Laredo Offices. Since oil fields contain pipes, steel rigging and heavy equipment, it's imperative to ensure that every protective measure is taken.
This includes adequately training employees, maintaining equipment and allowing a reasonable rest period. Neglecting to adhere to these guidelines can result in serious injury, such as broken bones, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Common causes of oil field accidents include:
- Gas truck accidents
- Toxic fumes
- Defective equipment
- Well blowouts
- Falls from rigs
Whether the injury sustained was caused by a negligent co-worker or a tragic accident, you reserve the right to seek compensation benefits.
If you or a loved one has suffered a devastating work injury, on the job injury, a work related injury, a workers compensation injury or any other injury while working on an oil field, call Carabin Shaw.
