"You were not responsible for your accident or injuries, so you should not be responsible for your medical bills." — Cormany Law PLLC

Accidents Caused By Oil And Gas Industry Hazards

We understand the gas industry. Gas wells are under tons of pressure, which can create opportunities for explosions. You could also obtain serious injuries from operating gas well servicing rigs, loaders, and any variety of heavy equipment and trucks.

We also understand the dangers associated with the oil industry. These can include explosions, mishaps while raising pipeline, derrick safety violations and other situations. Oil pipelines carry many hazards, which can create permanent, traumatic injuries.

Our legal team, managed by Mr. Cormany, has extensive experience reviewing and following state, federal and industry safety regulations. We have experience working with:

  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
  • American Petroleum Institute
  • American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
  • American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)

A Thorough Personal Review Of Your Case

We can review your accident against safety regulations to help uncover not only what really happened, but also who is responsible. Your legal limitations do not stop with your employer. You may be able to pursue a case against responsible third parties under Mandolidis, or deliberate exposure, regulations. We can help you obtain suitable compensation for your workplace accident injuries.
