Oilfield Work Injury

About Oilfield Injury


It's no secret that working in the oilfield can be a very dangerous job. Whether you’re injured on land, on a drilling rig, on a production rig, or offshore, we have the experience to help. Though the Merchant Marine Act (offshore) and the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (onshore) are federal laws that cover you, these injuries often require the involvement of an accident lawyer to help navigate the complexities of the situation and fight for what you deserve. Thankfully, that’s just what the Galloway Jefcoat attorneys will do for you.

Partner, co-founder, and attorney Rusty Galloway has years of experience working in the oil industry. His industry experience coupled with having represented oilfield injury clients for over 20 years adds a huge advantage to your case. He knows how to investigate your case and potential management or operating procedure violations, giving you the best possible representation.
