Construction Site Injuries

Oilfield Accidents

More and more oil companies and drilling companies are placing profits over safety.  This dangerous policy is causing more and more accidents in oil fields across the country. We have seen that most of the accidents that are occurring were preventable and occurred because of negligent conduct, improper and/or poor maintenance or failure of equipment. In most cases the injuries that occur in the oil fields are unusually severe and result in massive injuries or death.  Thus leaving the injured party incapable of returning to work and earning a livelihood or his family financially devastated.

Despite numerous safety standards and products in place to prevent oil field accidents, oil field workers are suffering on the job injuries at an alarming rate. The most common accidents occur as a result of:

    Improperly Maintained Equipment
    Slips and Falls
    Defective Machinery
    Pipeline and Roughneck Hazards
    Sulfur Hydroxide Fumes
    Tank Explosions
    Inadequate Safeguards
    Poorly Trained Co-Workers  

From the moment you contact our Law Firm we begin the job of determining what went wrong and who is responsible for the failure or lapses. In many cases there are numerous contractors and subcontractors at the job site who have varying degrees of responsibility. Oil rigs and derricks are put up and taken down and moved to new locations by design. An immediate investigation can help overcome some of the obstacles in proving liability.
