We know all too well how one careless mistake can cause a catastrophe. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations exist to protect workers, but when those regulations are not adhered to or if someone makes a mistake and it leads to an accident, then the results can be devastating.
While there are many ways that workers can get injured when working on an oilfield, some of the most common include:
- Defective Equipment
- Vehicle Accidents
- Exposure to Toxic Gases
- Insufficient Supervision
These accidents can lead to serious, or even fatal, injuries. From head injuries to broken bones and amputations, these damages can sometimes result in temporary or permanent disability. It won’t be easy for you and your family to move on from the accident; you will need to receive considerable compensation to afford to pay for all the associated expenses and move forward with your lives.

Every worker in America has the right to a safe workplace. That includes those working in one of the most dangerous industries in the nation. If you are injured on the job, you have a right to pursue compensation for damages suffered.
Injured victims are entitled to full compensation for lost wages, hospital bills, surgeries, past and future medical bills, physical therapy, and any other related losses. You may be able to collect worker’s compensation benefits, as well as damages from a negligent third party, depending on the details of your case.
