Causes of Oilfield Accidents and Injuries

The average oilfield is a workplace full of hazards. Heating machines, pressurized pipes, electronics, heavy equipment, and more are all present on oilfields and oilrigs. It is your employer’s responsibility to make certain all safety precautions are made to prevent accidents involving these hazards.

Safety failures that can cause an oilfield accident include but are not limited to:

  • Inadequate training: Every person who works on an oilfield must be highly trained in terms of both their unique job responsibilities and safety etiquette. Failing to train everyone accordingly and provide routine safety retraining puts everyone at risk of a workplace accident.
  • Lack of supervision: An oilfield will only run as smoothly as its supervision allows. Did your supervisor fail to provide oversight in your workspace, adding to the chances of some form of accident occurring?
  • Poorly maintained equipment: All parts of the equipment on an oilfield need regular inspections and maintenance. Part failures can cause a disaster, such as a pipe explosion or fire.

Wrongful Death Claims for Surviving Family Members

Unfortunately, oilfield accidents are rarely minor. The Department of Labor (DOL) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) note that oilfield and oilrig work are some of the most dangerous in the country, resulting in fatalities in many cases. If you lost a loved one in an oilfield accident, then we can help you file a wrongful death claim to pursue justice for them and their memory.

In a wrongful death claim following an oilfield accident, you can seek damages for:

  • The costs of final medical treatments
  • Pain and suffering experienced by the decedent and their family
  • Wages the decedent would have likely earned in their lifetime
  • Funeral and burial expenses
