Oil & Gas Companies
Our Firm Has a History of Holding Negligent Corporations Accountable
As oil and gas companies scramble to extract natural resources that the nation relies on, they establish a network of wells, refineries, and distribution centers for their product. Every one of these locations relies on men and women working in the energy industry. While the oil and gas industry is one of the most lucrative in the world, employees of these companies are not always as fortuitous as their bosses.
Oil and gas accidents are devastating for those near them. They cause serious injuries, are frequently deadly, and are nearly always preventable. Unfortunately, some oil and gas companies cut corners with safety and place the very people that make them successful at risk each day they work. After an oil and gas accident, injured workers and their families need the help of Arnold & Itkin. Our oil and gas company accident lawyers have extensive experience helping families after serious accidents. We’re ready to fight for the compensation that you need to focus on recovery.

Oil & Gas Company Accidents
An accident can occur at any point during the extraction and delivery of oil and gas products, thanks to their volatile nature. This means that companies must always ensure that their facilities are maintained and that their employees are properly trained. Any lapse in training and safety can make a normal day of operation transform into an event that ripples through the lives of hundreds of workers.
Oil and gas company accidents include the following:
- Heavy equipment failures
- Gas and oil explosions
- Toxic exposure
- Equipment malfunction
- Well blowouts
- Fracking accidents
- Truck and vehicle accidents
- Slip, trips, and falls
Many accidents like these can be prevented if employers, manufacturers, and others take necessary precautions. Because they are largely preventable, it’s unacceptable when an oil and gas company allows one to happen without taking responsibility for their lapses. However, oil and gas companies are powerful and have legions of lawyers who are ready to deny responsibility and force injured workers to handle recovery on their own.

- Calcasieu Refining
- Calumet Specialty Products Partners
- Delek US

The Deepwater Horizon Incident
When the Deepwater Horizon exploded in 2010, the worst oil and gas disaster in United States history had just begun. Despite failing to provide a safe work environment, the companies in charge of the vessel tried to shift blame to their employees. Arnold & Itkin was there to tell them this wasn’t acceptable. Our firm represented more than a third of the crew members who were aboard the rig during the incident. We fought to protect these workers and their families from shouldering the blame for this disaster so they could focus on rebuilding their lives.
