Were You Injured In An Oil Field Accident?
Oil and gas fields in north Central Texas have been a source of abundant energy resources, including both oil deposits and natural gas. For many oil field workers, that industry has provided a solid career which has afforded them the opportunity to support themselves and their families. Working in this field, however, carries significant health and safety risks for oil field workers.
The devastating impact that oil field accidents and injuries can have on the lives of injured workers and their families can be emotionally, mentally and financially devastating. It is not only necessary but imperative for an injured oil field worker to seek legal help in order to pursue compensation for the harmful effects of these catastrophic oil field accidents and injuries.

Common Injuries And Risks For Oil And Gas Field Workers
Various risk factors contribute to the likelihood of an injury occurring in the oil and gas field or an offshore oil rig. Of those, some of the most common are as follows:
- Well-site accidents
- Pipeline explosions
- Oil tank explosions
- Transportation truck accidents
- Chemical leaks
- Contamination of water and/or air supply
- Inadequately trained staff and/or management
- Inadequately qualified staff and/or management
- Failure to follow proper safety and industry standards
- Lack of proper supervision
- Lack of adequately staffed crews
- Wrongful death
Being injured in any of these types of accidents can leave workers in an extremely difficult position, and compensation may be absolutely crucial for the injured worker’s survival, to help them attempt recovery and to get back on their feet financially. If you were injured as a result of an oil field accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and possibly even exemplary or punitive damages.
These cases often take a lot of time in attempted negotiation with your employer and the other oil and gas industry companies that may have had crews on the site at the time of your accident, and you only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit in this type of case. So, time is not on your side!
