A severe burn injury suffered during dangerous work on a Texas oil rig or natural gas site can cause excruciating pain, disfigurement, emotional trauma and permanent, life-changing, career-ending disability.
The economic aftermath of such a setback is equally disturbing, quickly draining a family's finances and morale, potentially requiring years of long-term care and expensive therapy.
If the burns you suffered in a Texas workplace accident in the oil or natural gas industries have not been acknowledged by your employer or its insurer, experienced Houston attorney Thomas Barnes can help.
As founder of the Barnes Law Firm, LLP, Mr. Barnes brings 20 years of workplace accident and personal injury experience with successfully, aggressively advocating for injured workers just like you, in and out of court.

Roughnecks work long hours and many often struggle to stay awake, making them vulnerable to errors and accidents. Basic safety precautions are often overlooked by employers, contractors and subcontractors — to the detriment of loyal, hardworking employees.
