Oilfield accidents resulting in serious injury or death are inevitable. From flammable gases and liquids to heavy equipment and sophisticated operations, there are a multitude of risks that confront those working in the oil and gas fields. Cowles and Thompson attorneys possess the sophisticated knowledge and experience to provide the best possible defense to companies and contractors involved in oilfield businesses.

Cases Involving Serious Injury or Death

Unfortunately, the large majority of oilfield accidents that end up in litigation involve grave injuries and/or death. As a result, there is an extreme risk of high-dollar exposure to defendants sued in those situations. Most such cases involve multiple defendants with varying responsibilities alleged to have been responsible for the subject accident. As such, most lawsuits involve complex factual and legal scenarios requiring legal teams with knowledge of the industry, operations, experts, practices and procedures, indemnity, regulatory and contractual relationships that govern oilfield operations.
