Valve Failures

Corpus Christi Oil Injury Attorneys

Oilfield and oil rig work is extremely dangerous because it involves heavy equipment, combustible pipes, high-speed machinery, pressurized wells, and flammable liquid. Combined with negligent practices—like unsafe working conditions, poorly maintained or defective equipment, or poorly trained workers—these factors can result in devastating accidents, serious injuries, and possibly even death.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an oilfield accident caused by a valve failure, contact the Corpus Christi oil injury attorneys at Bandas Law Firm, P.C. today. You may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against the allegedly negligent party in order to seek fair and timely reimbursement for your injuries and medical expenses.

We can be reached online or by phone at (361) 238-2789.

Common Injuries Caused by Valve Failures

Because of the hazardous conditions oilfield and oil rig workers face on a daily basis, the associated injuries can be devastating.

Among the most common injuries resulting from a valve failure oilfield accident are:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns and electrocution
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Vision loss or blindness
  • Loss of limbs
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Death

Due to the severity of possible injuries sustained in a valve failure accident, victims of oilfield accidents may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, future medical care, loss of income, future loss of earning capacity, disfigurement, impairment, and pain and suffering.

Valve Failure Liability for Oilfield Accidents

In what is believed to be the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, an oil rig drilling for BP exploded and subsequently dumped 206 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010. The explosion killed 11 workers and injured 16 others and was caused at least in part by a failed blowout preventer, which is a large, specialized valve used to seal, control, and monitor oil and gas wells. According to the final report involving the oil spill, the catastrophe could have been prevented had the existing safety guidelines and practices been adhered to.

Parties who can be held liable for oilfield and oil rig accidents include employers, company men, co-workers, contractors, sub-contractors, and manufacturers of faulty tools or equipment.
