The Dangers of Oilfield Work Leads to Serious Accidents & Catastrophic Injuries
When oil companies and their service contractors operate their drilling sites around the clock, they can make huge profits. However, these round the clock operations often call for long hours, cramped working conditions, and fatigue. When you combine these conditions with heavy equipment, dangerous machinery, and commercial transport vehicles, it can be the recipe for serious injury. This is especially true when drilling companies cut corners and neglect safety, maintenance, and training. Additionally, there are a lot of different parties involved in drilling and oil exploration operations, including:
- Oil Companies
- Drill Operators
- Equipment rental companies
- Truck Drivers
- Machine operators
- Oil pumpers
- Saltwater disposal facilities
- Refinery Work
- Exploration companies
There are a lot of different ways that oilfield workers are injured, and a lot of different companies that may be responsible. When these companies or their employees are negligent, and others are injured, it’s only right that the responsible parties be held accountable. However, in most cases injured workers find themselves in a fight with their employer or the greedy insurance companies that will do anything to pay injured workers as little as possible.
Don’t Get Hurt Again by Greedy Insurance Company Tactics
Sadly, when the men and women who work in the oilfield are injured, they often get hurt again by their company or greedy insurance companies who want nothing more than to pay them nothing for their injuries.
Insurance companies make billions of dollars every year by not paying claims that they should, and by treating injured victims unfairly. Insurance company greed knows no bounds, and they will do almost anything they can to pay you as little as possible after an accident.
Oil companies and their insurance carriers have teams of investigators and lawyers working against you – don’t you deserve to have an aggressive team working for you as well? We believe you do.
