Safety Violations

Corpus Christi Oilfield Safety Violation Lawyers

Serving Nueces County & the Surrounding Areas

As the oil and gas industries flourish, the unfortunate fact is that the rate of fatal occupational injuries is also on the rise, particularly when inexperienced workers are not adequately trained in safety and precautionary measures. Devoting time and effort to protecting the safety of their employees should be a number one concern for oil companies. Unfortunately, serious accidents, injuries, and fatalities continue to afflict the oil industry, due in large part to recklessness, carelessness, and negligence on the part of oil companies.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury resulting from an oil company’s failure to adhere to safety policies, contact an experienced Corpus Christi oil accident attorney today, as you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Consequences of Oil Field Safety Violations

Federal safety regulations are put in place to protect the safety of oil workers, who put themselves at risk of serious injury and death every day just by working in the oil industry. These procedures are regulated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a federal agency which puts forth specific safety standards for companies that engage in oil field drilling.

Too often, in the aftermath of a catastrophic oil field or oil rig accident, it is discovered that violations of simple safety procedures are what led to the unnecessary injury and death of oil workers. Even more regrettable, these safety regulations are sometimes sidestepped simply for the sake of turning a profit.

Injuries Caused by Violations of Safety Procedures

One of the most devastating environmental disasters in U.S. history was the BP oil spill that occurred in April 2010, resulting in the death of 11 workers and 206 million gallons of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico. The final report submitted on the oil spill determined that the disaster was the result of a significant disregard for safety procedures on the part of BP, which compromised safety to the point of catastrophe. Intentional or not, when oil companies fail to acknowledge critical safety policies, they put the lives of their employees at unnecessary risk.

Some of the most common injuries resulting from oil field accidents caused by violations of safety policies include:

  • Burns
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Crush injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Death
