Oil Drilling Injuries in Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City Oil Field Injury Attorney
Oil drilling is a dangerous undertaking, even with advancements that have been made in the machinery and safety equipment used at land-based oil rigs. Even with proper training and safety regulations in place, the highly physical nature of this line of work places workers at risk of sustaining oil drilling injuries.
A worker can become caught in machinery or struck by moving parts, may be injured in an oil well blowout or may be placed at risk due to machinery malfunction. Serious or even fatal injuries and accidents may occur, leaving a worker facing an entirely changed life or a family without a loved one.
