Oilfield Accident Attorneys
For those who work in the oilfields, you and your family are dependent on your health and safety. Your ability to do your job depends on being fit and having the confidence that your employer is following the rules and regulations necessary to maintain a safe work environment.
When you or your loved one is in an accident on the job that results in a serious injury or death, our attorneys can represent your interests.
Going Above & Beyond for Our Clients
Lyons & Simmons is a law firm that goes the extra mile. We use state of the art technologies and know-how to investigate and help visualize complex and tragic consequences of neglect or malfeasance. For example, when lax rules and regulations led to the death of a man at a drilling rig near Quanah, Texas, our team created a computer animation to accurately depict the manner in which he was killed.
