Offshore Oil Rig Accident Injury Lawyers in Texas and Along the Gulf Coast
Offshore Oil Rig Fires | Gas Explosions | Negligence in Monitoring Conditions | Presence of Combustible Materials
On an offshore oil or gas rig, conditions can be optimal for an explosion or fire, with potentially deadly consequences. After a blowout, gas or oil can flow uncontrolled—the proximity of any open flame or even a spark caused by friction can cause an explosion and/or a fire. The owner or operator of a rig may neglect to monitor for the presence or accumulation of combustible materials on the rig. If you have been hurt in an explosion or fire on an offshore oil rig, we can help.
At the law office of Bailey & Galyen, we aggressively protect the rights of injured offshore oil rig workers, including people who have been hurt in a fire or explosion. With more than 25 years of personal experience, we know how to effectively investigate the facts and circumstances of your case, and how to put together the most effective arguments to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses. We know how difficult it can be to demonstrate liability in an oil and gas rig accident, and work with well-known experts, including engineers, geologists, medical authorities and financial planners, so that we can prove liability and demonstrate to a judge and jury the full extent of your losses.
