Common Causes of Oilfield Accidents

Oilfields are highly dangerous places, and there are many different ways in which injury can occur at these job sites. In addition to the risks that are present in any industrial job, such as falls and equipment injuries, oilfield workers are at risk for injuries that are unique to their industry. Working at an oilfield requires interaction with toxic and volatile chemicals which can cause injury. Oilfield workers may need to drive a lot for work as well, which contributes to an added risk of motor vehicle accidents.

Some of the most frequently occurring types of oilfield accidents involve:

  • Machinery defects

  • Explosions

  • Toxic exposure

  • Motor vehicle accidents

  • Slip and fall accidents

Oilfield Accident Injuries

Oilfield accidents often result in severe injuries. A person who has been injured in an oilfield accident may struggle long-term with pain, mobility issues, and other symptoms. In most cases, oilfield workers who are injured on the job will need to pay substantial medical bills. Oilfield accidents can also be fatal.

An oilfield accident can result in injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries and other brain injuries

  • Bone fractures

  • Muscle strain and tears

  • Burns

  • Spinal cord injuries

Oilfield Accident Liability

There are multiple parties who may be liable for your injuries if you have been harmed in an oilfield accident. In many cases, the cause of accidents can be traced to the negligence of an oil company that has not taken the proper precautions to protect their employees from injury. If an injury is caused by mechanical issues, the equipment manufacturer, safety inspectors, and others could be liable for resulting injuries and damages. In cases of motor vehicle accidents, a third-party driver could be found responsible.
