What Causes Derricks to Explode?

Those who work in the oil and gas industry have one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. The oil drilling process involves highly-volatile materials, and the equipment they work with can malfunction or short-circuit—creating a deadly combination. Any combination of these things can create a perfect storm that causes an oil derrick or land rig to explode. Many different factors can cause these serious oilfield explosions.

Depending on the method the company is using to transport their gas, explosions can occur because of a pipeline transport error or a gas truck accident. These companies are obligated to repair their machines as soon as they notice a problem. Any failure to maintain parts that results in a crash means that the company is liable for the accident and any injuries. Accidents can take place during drilling operations as well as when oil is being stored. Many of these accidents are caused because of improper maintenance. If equipment functioned properly, then many of these accidents would never happen. Explosions and fires can cause burn injuries to workers—it may even cause death in more serious accidents. Maintenance isn't just an efficiency issue—it's a life or death issue.

If this sounds like what happened to you, do not hesitate to contact our law firm.
