Helping After Accidents Involving Callon Petroleum Operating Co

Callon Petroleum Operating Co is an independent oil and natural gas company that operates assets in the Midland Basin, Delaware Basin, and Eagle Ford Shale in Texas. As part of the gas extraction industry, Callon has 169 employees across all its locations. In December 2019, Callon merged with Carrizo Oil and Gas Inc. The company has a net worth of $1.49 billion as of August 2021.

The people who work for Callon or any company in the oil and gas industry face challenging conditions every single day. They must work in inherently dangerous environments with heavy machinery, complex equipment, and volatile or toxic substances. This does not mean, however, that work accidents are excusable or expected. Worker safety should come first, in accordance with state and federal regulations and standards.

When a company does not put safety first, serious accidents can happen:

Callon Petroleum Accidents & Injuries

Worker Sues Callon After Serious Back Injury

In 2013, a Cactus Drilling Company employee was working on a Callon Petroleum oil well when he fell and injured his back. He was raking cuttings into a dumpster when the lid rolled open and he lost his footing. He returned to work after about 20 minutes and worked a 12-hour shift the next day, but sought medical attention when his discomfort became too great. He was suffering from a cervical strain and was unable to return to work. The worker then sued Callon, asserting negligence as the cause of his back injuries.

Deck Hatch Accident Crushes Workers’ Fingers

A Callon Petroleum worker was lifting a deck hatch when the hatch fell, smashing three of his fingers. The hatch then came out of its guide sleeve and fell on the worker’s hand. This accident could have resulted in far worse injuries but, fortunately, no one else was harmed during the incident.

Lawsuit Filed by Oyster Farmer Who Struck Abandoned Pipeline

In 1993, an oyster farmer struck an abandoned pipeline while dredging for oysters in Black Bay, Louisiana. He filed a lawsuit against Callon, but the case was ultimately dismissed for lack of jurisdiction to review the appeal.

Choose Leading Attorneys for Your Callon Petroleum Injury Case

If you are injured in the oilfield or at any worksite, you need to report your injury to your employer and seek medical attention. You should also consider talking to an attorney. Your employer may send you to the company doctor, but remember that you have the right to go to a different medical professional or facility, and you have the right to benefits for medical treatment and lost earnings. Depending on the case, you could be covered by workers’ compensation or may have a personal injury case.

At Arnold & Itkin, we know you are going through a lot. We also know how to help you understand your options so you make the right steps – toward recovery. Our Callon Petroleum injury lawyers can seek answers and justice on your behalf, helping you get what you need to rebuild.
