Oilfield Accident Attorney

One of the most hazardous occupations is drilling for oil, whether at a land based facility or an off-shore oil rig. Oilfield accidents have been on the rise, with workers putting in longer hours to meet the increasing demands for oil and gas. Companies stretch workers too thin with overtime and double shifts. Under such stressful conditions, accidents and injuries are much more commonplace.

If you have been the victim of an oilfield accident or if you or a loved one has suffered from an oilfield related injury, contact us.

Types of Oilfield Accidents

Accidents may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Work rig collapses
  • Falls from rigs and equipment
  • Equipment failures and defective products
  • Issues with Frac Tanks
  • Well blowouts
  • Explosions and oil fires

Oilfield accidents often result in catastrophic injuries, such as severe burns and electrocution, broken backs and necks from falls, head injuries from falling equipment, loss of limbs from explosions or defective equipment, and exposure to toxic chemicals and gases.
