Oil Pipeline Blowouts

San Antonio Oil Field Accidents Attorney

With the current downshift in the price of crude oil, many west Texas oil companies are looking for ways to cut down on the cost of production. For some, that includes looking the other way when it comes to proper maintenance and employee safety training. If there are OSHA violations occurring on the drill site, employees could be in danger of oil field injuries as a result of fires and explosions, or pipe blowouts.

At The Law Office of George P. Escobedo & Associates, PLLC, we understand how disastrous pipe blowout accidents can be for the oil field workers involved. If you’ve been injured by the negligence of your employer, our San Antonio workers’ compensation attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Common Pipeline Blow Out Injuries

Pipeline blowouts are extremely dangerous because they can lead to fires and explosions. Pipeline blowouts can happen at the drill in an oil field or at sea at the oil rig. Most drills have blowout preventers built into them, but a blowout can still occur. The most common well blowouts occur today when the pressure build up is higher than the blowout preventers can handle.

If the preventers fail, oil or gas is ejected from the well along with mud, stones, and sand. If any of the stones rub together during the blowout, they could spark an explosion. That explosion could send hundreds of tiny rocks flying in all directions like shrapnel from a bomb, resulting in serious injuries.

Seeking Compensation?

Many oil field workers are not aware they have a right to be compensated after they’ve sustained an injury on the job. If you’ve recently been involved in an oil field accident, you may want to file a workers’ compensation claim.

Taking on the insurance company of a big oil corporation can be scary and confusing. Our San Antonio oil field accident lawyers are here to help you. We conduct extensive investigations into your employer to look for any and all possible incidents of negligence that could have caused the accident you were injured in.
