Oil Field Accidents

In East Texas and throughout the Lone Star State, oil field accidents are happening at an alarming rate. Some of this can be attributed to more oil and gas work being done than in recent years, but many oil field accidents are caused by companies that place profits ahead of safety. At Ward, Smith & Hill, our team of experienced oil field accident attorneys regularly helps energy industry workers get the compensation they deserve.

When oil field workers receive improper training or work with ineffective supervisors, then accidents are sure to follow. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, oil and gas exploration accidents account for more than 100 deaths and more than 4,000 individual injuries every year.

The attorneys at Ward, Smith & Hill regularly represent oil field workers and their families in serious injury and death cases.
