Demanding Answers for Workers Injured After Preventable Accidents

Pioneer Natural Resources is an oil and gas exploration company that’s operated from Irving, Texas. While the company as it is today was founded in 1997 after a merger between Parker & Parsley Petroleum Company and Mesa Inc., Pioneer has existed in some form since 1962. Today, Pioneer Natural Resources operates mostly in the Cline Shale, a part of the Permian Basin that’s located in the Spraberry Trend. As of 2020, the company had estimated reserves 1.271 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Of these reserves, 53% is petroleum, 25% is natural gas liquids, and 22% is natural gas.

At Arnold & Itkin LLP, we’re dedicated to helping injured workers recover the compensation they need after preventable accidents. While the oil and gas industry is inherently dangerous, accidents that injure and kill workers are always preventable. It’s the job of the oil and gas companies to protect their workers. Yet, relaxed safety standards, a lack of training, and inadequately maintained equipment often triggers serious accidents that unfairly change the lives of workers and their families. Our Pioneer Natural Resources accident lawyers have recovered billions of dollars for workers. We don’t accept excuses, refuse to stop an investigation until the truth is revealed, and never back down from a fit, even when the other side is a powerful oil and gas company.

Recent Pioneer Accidents

In August of 2017, a worker was killed at an oil well owned and operated by Pioneer in the Permian Basin in Midland County, Texas. The man was working when a cable snapped, causing heavy blocks to crush him. According to a lawsuit filed by the man’s family, a Pioneer representative admitted to investigators “he had been told that the severed cable was in need of repair.”

In 2014, a Pioneer oil rig burst into flames, injuring five workers. According to local news reports, one of the workers eventually succumbed to his injuries.

Dangers Faced by Pioneer Natural Resources Workers

As one of the biggest producers of oil and gas in the second-largest oilfield in the world, Pioneer Natural Resources has many workers and contractors placed in harm’s way during operations. While danger is inevitable in the oil and gas industry, they’re known and, as a result, completely avoidable.

Pioneer workers face dangers working in settings such as:

These locations are filled with hazards for the workers who are at them. Dangerous machinery, toxic substances, flammable materials, and the possibility for serious injuries means that Pioneer must devote resources to make sure workers are safe. Yet, too often, companies cut corners hoping to save money while placing those who make it for them at the most risk.

Pioneer Natural Resources Accident FAQ

What Causes Oilfield Accidents?

Oilfield accidents occur in a variety of ways. Yet, there’s almost always one common factor involved with all of them: negligence. Too often, companies fail to maintain worksites, provide safety equipment, or make sure workers have the training required to do their job right. When this happens, at-fault companies should be held accountable for the suffering they’ve failed to prevent.

What Can a Pioneer Natural Resources Accident Lawyer Help With?

Our team will focus on helping you recover financially from an accident. We’ll work to help you recover any losses caused by the accident including lost wages, medical bills, loss of future income, pain and suffering, and any other financial recovery you need.

Should I Accept a Settlement from My Employer?

You should never accept a settlement before speaking with our Pioneer Natural Resources claim lawyers. Often, settlement offers are lower than they should be. If an injured worker accepts a settlement, it means that they’ll waive their right to pursue fair compensation. Our team will look at your offer and help you decide if accepting is in your best interest. If the company isn’t being fair, we’ll demand the fair compensation you deserve.
