Oil and gas drilling is dangerous work with long hours working on or near large, complex machinery, often in adverse conditions. If you are injured on the job as an oil field worker in Texas, you may or may not be covered by workers' compensation. In addition to your own employer, there are typically many contractors at an oil or gas drilling site who may have caused or contributed to your injury.

Injury and death routinely occur when employers and oilfield contractors fail guard floor and wall openings and holes, fail to provide emergency action plans and fire prevention plans, fail to provide routine drilling rig and building maintenance, fail to provide workers with adequate personal protective equipment including eye and face protection, head and respiratory protection, fail to plan for and prevent against fires and explosions, and fail to provide effective guards on dangerous machinery. Injuries occur from lack of training, lack of adequate safety protections and procedures, and errors occurring in the drilling process. Typical oilfield injuries are serious and inflict catastrophic consequences on workers and their families, including mounting medical bills, lost wages, scarring, disfigurement, and pain and suffering.
