An accident on an oil rig may result from a company putting too much pressure on its workers to go non-stop for long periods of time doing strenuous labor without the needed rest periods. In West Texas, accidents in the Eagle Ford Shale fields are all too common, as oil and gas companies frequently put profits and thus production ahead of needed safety steps. The employees may be effectively forced to ignore the proper safety standards and procedures in their efforts to get the work done faster. Carabin Shaw’s oil rig accident lawyers in Midland, Texas understand how to effectively use our experience and resources to work on any kind of oil or gas field accident claim or case.

The Eagle Ford Shale, located here in Western South Texas, is a dense layer of rock which can be a productive and valuable source of gas and oil. Gas and oil companies consistently create new wells as they explore the shale stone layer trying to release valuable deposits of natural gas.

With more than 200 active well operators over a 30-county wide area, the Eagle Ford Shale Gas region is southeast of Midland. It takes workers traveling in and out from every part of the state to work the field in any number of counties, including Gonzalez, DeWitt, Karnes, Atascosa, McMullen and Dimmitt Counties.

At Carabin Shaw, our experienced oil and gas field injury legal team fully understands that this area and the drilling create jobs in the oil and natural gas exploration area. The work which relates to this exploratory drilling is frequently very, very dangerous in nature. The actual process of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling (hydro-fracking) leads to noticeable increased risks of fires, explosions, and all sorts of accidents involving heavy equipment, construction vehicles and cranes.

“How can a Midland oil rig accident attorney help me?”

If you or your family thinks that oil and gas industry accidents are actually rare, you should think again. According to Houston newspapers, there are more annual deaths in the gas and oil field industry and in exploration for those minerals than in any other single occupation. The paper based its statistical analysis on at least five years of fatality incidents as investigated by the Federal “Occupational Safety and Health Administration” (OSHA).

While overall deaths from workplace accidents declined in Texas, oil and gas involved fatalities were recorded at an actually alarming rate over the recent period analyzed. On average, 39 people died each and every year between 2007 and 2011. You need help from a good lawyer when this happens to you or a family member. We are here to help.
