Houston Refinery Accident Attorneys

At Criaco & Associates, our attorneys help workers injured at oil rigs, gas refineries, and offshore platforms recover financial compensation for severe or disabling injuries suffered at work. If you or someone in your family has been injured or killed in an oil rig accident, contact one of our personal injury lawyers in Houston.

We represent oil and gas workers in the presentation of damages claims in cases such as the following:

Gas explosions and fires
Falls from heights
Motor vehicle accidents
Collapsing booms, masts, and overhead structures
Pump and valve accidents
Helicopter, boat, or barge accidents in transit to or from offshore oil rigs
Accidents in erecting or dismantling oil rigs
Among the injuries characteristic of workplace accidents in the oil fields are head injuries, spinal cord injuries, multiple fractures, and severe burns. Many of these will result in permanent disability, and it will be essential to evaluate your future treatment and home care expenses accurately and document them thoroughly. Otherwise, some of your future needs might not be covered by the settlement or jury verdict.

Our lawyers work closely with medical professionals, industry experts, economists, and life care planning experts to make sure that every compensable item of your loss is properly identified and presented for payment. In fatal accident cases, our knowledge of Texas wrongful death law will similarly help ensure that all permissible elements of your damages are included in your demand and clearly explained.
