Oil Field & Drilling Rig Accidents
Midland - Odessa, TX

Located in the middle of the Permian Basin, Midland-Odessa, Texas is in the heart of oil country. While the oil and gas drilling industry provides a livelihood for many Texas and New Mexico families, oil drilling and rig accidents can devastate families because of serious injuries and deaths of loved ones.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a drilling rig accident, you do not have to face the future alone. An experienced personal injury lawyer from The Garriga Law Firm will aggressively pursue your work-related injury claim or wrongful death lawsuit.

Drilling Rig Accidents, Injuries & Deaths

Oil drilling technology has evolved over the years, but one thing remains the same—oil drilling rigs are dangerous places to work.  An oil rig is a towering structure that houses heavy moving equipment which exposes the workers on the rig to injuries like crush injuries and broken bones resulting from structural collapse or improperly maintained equipment which can result in death. Electrocution and burn injuries and deaths may also result from faulty or improperly maintained electrical equipment.

Oil Drilling Rig Accidents & Liability

Many oil drilling rig accidents are preventable.  Oil field accidents can be the result of negligence on the part of many  different companies that are involved at the job site.

Many oil drilling rig accidents also involve product liability and premises liability issues. An experienced personal injury lawyer from The Garriga Law Firm can help you identify the responsible parties and hold them accountable.

Life after an Oil Rig Accident

The injuries or deaths that result from oil rig accidents can be devastating and life-changing. Whether you are learning to live without the same mobility you once enjoyed or facing a future without a loved one, your future will involve serious financial challenges.
