Eagle Ford Shale Oil Field Accidents Attorney

Oil field work is a high-risk activity. Men (and women) work in close proximity with heavy equipment. Long hours are typical for oil field workers. High-pressure fracking operations as well as traditional oil wells both put workers at risk. In the past few years, oil field work in South Texas has expanded greatly because of all the new Eagle Ford Shale oil wills. Increased oil field developments bring with them increasing numbers of oil field accidents. Eagle Ford Shale oil field accidents lawyer Harry S.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the most common oil field accidents have to do with transportation and contact with heavy machinery and equipment.
