Austin personal injury attorney Paul Colley Jr. of Colley & Colley, LLP settled an oil field accident case earlier this year, earning a seven-figure recovery for his client.

Colley filed the case, cause number 362-11-4502 in the 369th Judicial District Court in Anderson County, Texas, against the operator of the well on behalf of his client, an oil field worker who was injured when an explosion occurred on the work-over rig where he was working.

According to the petition, Colley’s client suffered crushing injuries to his leg, back and pelvis in the accident, which occurred in Decatur, Texas in June of last year.

“My client is very satisfied with the outcome of this case,” Colley said. “The accident was horrific and he suffered major injuries as a result of the oil field explosion, but this settlement will help him pay for his medical bills and living expenses.”

Colley has been an oil field accident attorney since 1984, when he handled his first oil field fatality case. To learn more about Colley’s experience as a Texas personal injury trial lawyer, click here.
