Common Oil Field Incidents
Both fatal and nonfatal injuries on oil fields can stem from a wide range of issues. Common types of oil field accidents include:
- Unsecure rigs
- Defective equipment
- Weather-related accidents
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Car- or truck-related incidents
It is the responsibility of the oil field owner to maintain a safe working environment. Additionally, all workers have an obligation to act responsibly while at work. However, when safety protocols are not followed, accidents can occur and have serious, or even fatal, consequences.
Many work-related injuries are covered under workers’ compensation or insurance benefits. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that your insurance company or employer has your best interests at heart. They may offer you a partial settlement that falls short of what you actually need.
Our legal practice has roots in this community, and we care about the well-being of local workers.
