Common Causes of Drilling Rig Failures

Although some injury risks in the oilfield industry may be considered “part of the job,” serious and unnecessary accidents may also be caused by substandard workplace safety measures on the part of oil companies, contractors, and equipment manufacturers. There are also third parties whose negligence may be responsible for oilfield accidents, including independent contractors like rig movers, wireline operators, logging companies, and fracking companies.

Some of the most common causes of drilling rig failures and collapses include:

  • Heavy equipment failures
  • Lack of adequate training
  • Errors in the drilling process
  • Worker fatigue
  • Rig blowouts
  • Failure to use proper safeguards

Injuries Resulting from Drilling Rig Accidents

Oilfield workers face significant hazards every day, including dealing with volatile explosive materials and heavy equipment, among other dangerous tasks.

Some of the most common injuries caused by drilling rig failures and collapses include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Exposure to toxic gases and chemicals

Every year, thousands of oilfield workers are injured on the job, with many of the injuries proving to be life-altering and sometimes even fatal. Most workers who have been injured in oilfield accidents are entitled to workers’ compensation for their injuries, medical bills, and lost wages. However, they may also have grounds to file a personal injury claim against the allegedly negligent third party in order to seek fair and timely reimbursement.

If you have been involved in a drilling rig failure or collapse accident, contact the Corpus Christi oilfield accident attorneys at Bandas Law Firm, P.C. immediately. With skilled and knowledgeable legal representation, you can protect your rights and collect the compensation you deserve.
