Call Carabin Shaw at 800-862-1260. We can help you and your family.

The natural gas and oil industries in our country are a great creator of economic and monetary prosperity. That economic prosperity, however, comes at a very high price. This is especially for pipeline and oil field workers who routinely face higher than most risks of being killed or injured while working on their jobs.

In actual fact, jobs in the natural gas and oil industries are some of the most dangerous, and difficult, jobs in our entire country because of the high rate of deaths, injuries and other accidents suffered by such workers. In the state of Texas by itself, at least 600 people, among them many of our fellow Texans from our own Permian Basin area, have suffered fatal injuries in oil and gas field, pipeline and refinery accidents since 2008. At least that many more of our fellow West Texans have been horribly and permanently injured in oil and gas pipeline and field accidents, resulting in debilitating and possibly devastating injuries.

What may, in many cases, even be worse than the oil field and pipeline accidents is that, in a great many cases, the accidents may actually have been avoidable.

At Carabin Shaw, our oil field accident litigation team has been advocating aggressively on behalf of the rights of injured pipeline and oil field employees and contractors for more than two decades. Carabin Shaw is dedicated to assisting the injured in recovering and securing just settlements. Our lawyers are ready willing and able to fight the big oil companies and pipeline companies to ensure your rights and help you and your family pursue all reasonable and available remedies at law after any pipeline or oil field accident has injured you.

Carabin Shaw’s goal is always to make sure that you and your family get the best chance at the maximum financial recovery allowed by law so that you can focus your time and energy on restoring your life and healing up after your injuries.

The More Common Types of Oil Field Injuries and Accidents

Pipeline and Oil Field Accidents: Contributing factors and common causes

Although many different factors can cause pipeline and oil field accidents, sadly, many get caused by various forms of negligence and carelessness, which frequently include (but are not limited to):

Negligence by an employer – Driven by their need to make maximum profit, negligence by employers that frequently contributes to pipeline and oil field accidents can involve (but isn’t limited exclusively to):

  • Failure to provide workers with appropriate safety gear and/or provide them with adequate safety equipment
  • Failure to follow OSHA safety guidelines and standards and/or have appropriate and correct safety procedures in place and being followed
  • Failing to maintain and/or properly inspect equipment
  • De Facto or forced overly long work shifts for employees, for example 12- to 24-hours per shift.

Negligence by equipment manufacturers – Negligence by machinery or equipment manufacturers usually involves distributing and/or making dangerous or defective equipment. This type of negligence may also involve one or more failures to properly assemble or install equipment, in addition to any failure to warn employees about all of the risks that go with certain equipment.

Negligence by other parties – Many other types of parties and/or companies can contribute to pipeline or oil field accidents. Such parties can include, property owners, contractors, third-party service providers and even some civilians passing through or near a job site.
