Oil Company & Contractor Negligence
Legal Representation from a San Antonio Oil Field Accidents Lawyer
Oil field workers risk their lives on a daily basis due to the dangerous conditions at work. They are also subject to long shifts for several days without any time, making the chances of an accident occurring highly likely. Employers are liable to provide adequate equipment and machinery, as well as high standards for safety, in order to provide the safest environment for their employees. However, oil companies and contractors sometimes fail to fulfill their promises, resulting in injury or death.
At The Law Office of George P. Escobedo & Associates, PLLC, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of Texas oil field workers who suffered serious injuries due to the negligence of their employers. With more than a decade of legal experience, our oilfield accidents attorney in San Antonio has the extensive knowledge of state and federal laws that exist to protect workers.
Types of Oil Field Accidents Caused By Negligence
Unfortunately, oil companies and contractors sacrifice the protection and lives of their workers in order to make a profit. While oil field workers are typically covered by workers’ compensation, they don’t cover loss of earning potential, as well as pain and suffering. However, if a third party, such as a manufacturer or owner of machines that are defective, is involved, then you may be eligible to seek full damages.
Common types of oil field accidents include:
- Defective equipment and design
- Machinery and equipment failures
- Rig collapses
- Fires and explosions
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Oil rig blowouts
- Slip and falls
- Falls for significant heights
