San Antonio Oilfield Accident Attorneys

Representing Injured Oilfield Workers in Texas & Nationwide

The oil and gas industry injures thousands of workers every year, making it one of the most dangerous industries in the United States. Oil workers understand the dangers their work involves, and they take precautions to prevent serious injury. Unfortunately, a worker’s caution isn’t enough to keep them from getting hurt. Often, accidents occur because employers fail to provide workers with the proper equipment and training, oversights that lead to serious accidents.

If you have sustained injuries in an oilfield accident because of an employer’s negligent behavior, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses.

Dangers of Faulty Equipment

Oilfield workers use heavy machinery that can be dangerous if it isn’t handled properly or is defective. Malfunctioning oil extraction equipment can trigger an explosion or fire. Every piece of equipment used to extract, transport, and store oil is owned and maintained by oil and gas companies. It is, therefore, their responsibility to keep these processes and equipment free from hazards. Companies often fail to repair or upkeep equipment to reduce costs—putting their worker’s lives at risk.

Defective equipment causes also cause workers to become exposed to toxic chemicals. If a chemical leaks, it’s usually because an employee was not properly trained or because the machinery used is defective. Employers often fail to provide a safe work environment, and they must be held responsible for their negligent behavior.

Potential Hazards Faced at an Oilfield Workplace

Over 200 workers sustained fatal injuries a year in Texas, according to the United States Department of Labor. Many workplace accidents are caused because of the supervisor’s negligence or irresponsibility.

Owners and employers may be held liable for any of the following injuries:

  • Explosions, fires, exposure to chemicals: When workers are exposed to hazardous chemicals or combustion, it is because these materials are out of place or because of poor management.
  • Slips and falls: Most people would believe that slips and falls are caused by clumsiness, but this isn’t always the case. Workers fall if employers fail to place guardrails or harnesses for workers at great heights.
  • Falling objects: Workers at elevated heights may drop a tool or a piece of equipment that can fall and hurt another worker. These tools should be secured on the worker to prevent objects from falling and harming others.
  • Malfunctioning equipment: Oilfield owners are responsible for renovating wear and tear on equipment to prevent them becoming a hazard in the workplace.
