Causes of Oil Field Accidents

Despite the fact that oil companies have stringent regulations in place to protect the safety of their employees, oil workers continue to suffer serious and sometimes fatal injuries on the job site. There are a number of possible causes of oil field accidents, including heavy equipment failure, lack of proper training, failure to use proper safeguards, errors in the drilling process, oil worker fatigue, and unsafe working conditions. Unfortunately, some oil field accidents are the result of oil companies taking shortcuts to save time or money, often compromising the safe work environment of oil field employees.

Oil Field Accident Injuries

Due to the demands and dangers of working on an oil field, oil workers are at a high risk for suffering severe injuries and even death. The injuries resulting from oil field accidents can be catastrophic, especially if the accident involves industrial equipment weighing thousands of pounds. In many cases, devastating oil field accidents can occur without warning, sometimes at no fault of the oil worker. Injuries resulting from serious oil field accidents may include:

  • Brain injury
  • Burn injury
  • Amputation
  • Loss of sight or hearing
  • Crush injuries
  • Fall injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Wrongful death
