"No B.S. lawyer talk.""When I seek professional advice, I don’t want B.S. I want it straight up, with no double talk. I figure you do also. I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating, no B.S. lawyer talk, and no double talk - just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth - just the way that I want it."

While working in this industry is a great way to make a living, it is also very dangerous work. Workers are entitled to every possible protection to prevent personal injury and wrongful death.

Fact is, the pressure to increase production can be huge in the oil fields. Pressure can lead drillers to require overtime of employees and impose unrealistic deadlines. This can serious injuries and death. Drillers often fail to take the time to train employees thoroughly. When this happens, people can be seriously injured or killed. Oil rigs are by nature unsafe. Proper caution can reduce the incidence of injury-causing accidents and fatalities.
Almost always serious injuries and catastrophic injuries are preventable. This is especially true when workers are forced to work long periods of time without adequate rest. Too often companies gamble with the health and safety of workers. Safety takes a back seat to working faster. It is almost always about production - not safety.
Proper and adequate maintenance costs time and money. Fact is, some companies don’t spend the time and money needed to properly maintain equipment. When this happens, oil field workers can be seriously injured or killed.
Accidents also happen when transporting oil field workers to the site of the oil rig. When a bus or helicopter is involved in an accident, multiple injuries and fatalities usually result. Oil rigs are by nature unsafe.
