Oil Rig Accidents

Need an Oil Rig Accident Lawyer?

Onshore and offshore oil rig work often introduces hazards that leave workers seriously injured. In fact, oil rig explosions and other accidents can disable and even kill people. If you were involved in an oil rig explosion, you have legal recourse. Learn more about these accidents and how our oil rig injury lawyers can help.

Common Types of Oil Rig Injuries

Dangers associated with working on oil rigs include:

  • Fires and explosions: Since oil is naturally flammable, fires and explosions are common.
  • Defective machinery: Defective equipment and machinery can cause workers to be crushed, maimed, or killed on the job.
  • Transportation accidents: Workers may be hurt during transit on the job site.
  • Weather: Hazardous weather can create dangerous situations in which workers are injured.
  • Slip-and-falls: Falls can be deadly, and insufficient safety equipment and poor weather may exacerbate the risk on oil rigs.
  • Chemical exposure: Potentially hazardous chemicals are used in the oil extraction process, and workers can suffer as a result of chemical exposure.

Negligence and human error can have devastating consequences if workers are killed or injured as a result of a colleague's attention lapse. Oil rig risks rise exponentially if workers lack sufficient training, if the job site lacks essential safety equipment, or due to negligence. Oil rig environments bring higher-than-average risks of workplace accidents, and many oil field workers pay the ultimate price with their lives while on the job. If something goes wrong, you have legal rights. Since oil companies aggressively fight these lawsuits, it's critical that you have an experienced attorney on your side.
