Refinery and oil field workers are at risk on a daily basis, working lengthy shifts for several days in an environment where extraction is 24/7. These long hours without days off put them on-site for several weeks at a time. They put their trust in their employers to maintain high standards of safety. Falling short of those standards because of cost-cutting or corporate greed can cause serious accidents that result in serious injury or death.
At the Law Offices of Fidel Rodriguez, Jr., our attorneys protect the rights of South Texas residents through personal injury claims. In addition, we represent families of primary wage earners killed due to workplace negligence and gross negligence.
