Workers in oil and gas exploration and drill fields throughout Texas work with some of the most dangerous industrial equipment, under the harshest conditions. Oil field accidents can have devastating consequences both for the environment, and for the individuals who work in this industry. Some of the most common injuries in an oil field are well fires, also referred to as blowouts, falls from platforms or injuries sustained when equipment is dropped from a height and lands on a worker.
Legally, when an oil field accident occurs due to unsafe or preventable conditions, poor equipment or certain other causes, injured victims may be entitled to compensation under the law. Whether your Texas oil field accident occurred in the oil field, on an offshore oil rig, an inland derrick or a Gulf Coast refinery — the nature of the business itself and the massive power of the equipment involved will often combine to produce catastrophic injuries for nearby workers.
