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,
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.
