Common Oil Rig & Oilfield Accidents

Oil rig accidents can cause catastrophic injuries to workers. In some cases, these injuries can be fatal. When an accident occurs in an oilfield or on an oil rig, several parties may be liable for the injuries caused. 

For example, the rig operator, the drilling company, the maintenance company, the product manufacturer, or a third-party contractor could be held liable for the damages.

Some of the most common types of oil rig accidents include:

Oil rig workers are at risk of suffering severe or fatal injuries due to the nature of their work. Even with the proper safety precautions in place, accidents can happen. 

If your loved one was killed in an oil rig accident, you have the right to seek compensation for your loss. A wrongful death claim can help you recover compensation for medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, lost wages, lost benefits, loss of inheritance, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering.

How Can an Oil Rig Injury Lawyer Help?

Oil rig injury cases can be complex. When you are injured on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, a workers’ comp claim will not cover all of your damages. 

In some cases, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against any responsible parties in addition to filing a workers’ comp claim. This is why it is so important to work with an experienced oilfield accident attorney.

A lawyer can help you seek compensation for your:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
