Oil Rig Drilling Accidents

As the world’s demand for oil continues to grow, oil companies are pushing the limits of the environment, their personnel and the available technology in their effort to profit from the world’s demand.

It is well known that the pressure being placed on employees to work harder and faster combined with the extreme dangers inherit with drilling equipment and drilling machinery places the every day worker in harms way.

We believe that these pressures are creating the environment for a never before seen perfect storm that will result in more and more serious oil rig accidents and explosions.
We have all seen what can happen when error upon error creates the conditions necessary for such as the failure with the Deep Water Horizon Rig that exploded off the Coast of Louisiana.

Drilling accidents and injuries can be complex in nature, costly to prosecute the responsible parties and ripe for some oil companies to try to manipulate the facts.  All in an effort by powerful oil companies and their insurance companies in an effort to pay out the least possible amount to an injured worker.

Put a strong legal advocate on your side call us at 1.800.862.1260.

There is no question that an oil rig is a dangerous place to work. A potential accident is waiting to occur around every corner. No matter how many safety measures are in place, serious accidents continue to occur on platforms, rigs and deck floors, leaving workers with catastrophic injuries including:
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burns
  • Amputation of limbs
Although money gained through a lawsuit is poor compensation for an injury that permanently changes your life, it is society's only way of allowing you some form of justice. Don't allow yourself to become intimidated by a big oil company. Don't fall for the tactics of insurance companies whose goal is to settle for far less than you deserve. Speak with an attorney experienced in oil rig accidents who can help you achieve the best possible result for your case and help you build a solid foundation for your future.
