WE SEEK JUSTICE FOR WORKERS INJURED ON THE JOB
As an established attorney in Houston, Scott McLemore has experience representing clients injured in oilfield accidents. Houston prides itself on being the Energy Capital of the World, as home to over 5,000 companies in the industry. For over one hundred years, Houston has benefitted from the big profits of the oil business since its first discovery in the area. However, it has always been a very dangerous industry for oilfield workers. Houston is home to over one-third of the country’s oil and gas extraction workers.
Oil field accidents happen and tend to cause serious injuries and fatalities. The oil industry is full of opportunities, and workers earn good money. However, the high wages come with sacrifices due to the physically demanding work, long work hours, and extensive time away from family.
