When heavy machinery malfunctions, it may cause a fire or explosion or may result in a worker being caught or hit by its moving parts. The injuries associated with machinery malfunction at an oil field are typically catastrophic, leading to severe burns, crush injuries, damaged internal organs, amputation or dismemberment and paralysis. In some cases a worker will lose his or her life immediately or will succumb to critical injuries.

Far too many oil drilling injuries are linked to negligent safety standards, poor equipment maintenance and other forms of carelessness or big oil companies "cutting corners" in an attempt to make a profit. Our team can investigate the circumstances that led to your accident to determine who should be held accountable and will then seek the highest amount of monetary damages possible under workers' compensation or personal injury law.
