When Oil & Gas Companies Cut Corners, Workers Pay the Price

Oil and gas companies make millions, even billions, every year. These corporations are notorious for pushing for more production and more profit, sometimes at the expense of their workers. They may cut corners, waiting to replace aging equipment or failing to properly implement safety standards, just to keep production as high as possible. This increases the likelihood of an accident that can injure numerous workers or claim innocent lives.

At Arnold & Itkin, we’re passionate about protecting oil and gas workers’ rights, and our case results reflect this. Some of our notable oilfield injury recoveries include:

  • $72 million settlement for a worker who lost his arm and suffered other catastrophic injuries in an oilfield accident.
  • $18.75 million settlement for an injured oilfield worker in a seemingly impossible case.
  • $7.2 million settlement for a client who suffered a traumatic brain injury and experienced memory loss after an offshore accident.
  • $1.9 million jury verdict for a nurse who was seriously injured when oilfield equipment fell from the back of a truck and hit her car.

These recoveries have changed our clients’ lives, helping to secure their care and support for the rest of their lives. These and all the oilfield injury cases we have successfully handled have also put pressure on oil and gas companies to improve safety and place more importance on their workers’ lives.

Oilfield Accident FAQ

What types of injuries do oilfield workers experience?

Oilfield workers in New Mexico may experience catastrophic injuries if safety standards are overlooked, equipment malfunctions, or their co-workers or employers are careless.

Potential oilfield injuries include:

Because oilfield worker injuries are often severe, they require extensive medical care and will often impact a worker’s ability to return to the field. This makes the swift recovery of complete compensation all the more important.

What should I do after an oilfield injury in New Mexico?

The most important thing you can do after an oilfield accident is to seek medical care. Get the treatment you need, from the doctor you want to see. Your employer may try to send you to a company doctor, but you have the right to seek treatment from the doctor or facility of your choosing.

After you get medical care, make sure you inform your employer of the incident and your injuries, in writing. Starting a record of your injury and keeping all applicable documents, receipts, and communication like emails or letters will help support your claim for compensation.

As soon as you can, contact an attorney with experience in New Mexico oilfield accident cases. These are complex legal matters that require a complete understanding of state and federal safety regulations, oil and gas laws, and precedents set by case law.
