Helping Oilfield Workers Fight for Accountability

The oil and gas sector accounts for a significant portion of Oklahoma's economy, employing thousands across the state and supporting countless families. Unfortunately, some energy companies prioritize profit over the safety of their workers, which can lead to serious consequences for Oklahomans. Issues such as inadequate training, hasty hiring processes, poor maintenance of equipment, and disregard for recommended safety measures and equipment can often lead to disastrous accidents at oilfields.

When accidents occur, it’s common for workers and their families to bear the brunt of the consequences. This is where the Tulsa oilfield injury attorneys at Brewster & De Angelis step in. We represent oilfield workers who have been injured on the job at refineries and drilling sites across Oklahoma, Texas and the United States. Our knowledgeable team will leverage our deep understanding of the oil and gas industry and workers' rights to advocate for you.

The oil industry has a troubled reputation for providing hazardous working conditions for its employees. The legal team at Brewster & De Angelis is committed to holding negligent employers accountable for injuries and deaths resulting from their failure to prioritize worker safety.

Following an accident, the allure of a quick settlement from the responsible energy company can be strong. However, injured workers who build a solid case for trial often stand to recover significantly more. The Tulsa oilfield accident attorneys at Brewster & De Angelis are dedicated to helping you construct a robust case, maximizing your potential recovery following an oilfield incident in Oklahoma.

Common Causes of Oilfield Accidents: A Closer Look

The oil drilling industry is inherently risky, with daily serious injuries and fatalities reported at oil rigs and drilling sites nationwide. Accidents can stem from a variety of factors, including negligent colleagues, inadequate safety equipment, ineffective safety measures, or any other number of reasons. Given the high-stakes, fast-paced nature of the oil industry, even minor errors can escalate into catastrophic accidents, causing widespread property damage and injuring numerous workers.

Here's a closer look at some of the more prevalent causes of oilfield injuries:

  • Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals: Workers often come into contact with dangerous chemicals, which can lead to health complications over time.
  • Untrained Workers: Workers without adequate training can make mistakes that lead to accidents.
  • Slips and Falls: Wet or uneven surfaces can lead to slips and falls, resulting in injuries.
  • Structural Failures: Collapsed work rigs and decks can cause severe injuries or even death.
  • Defective Equipment: Manufacturing or installation defects can cause equipment to malfunction, leading to accidents.
  • Equipment-Related Accidents: Heavy machinery can crush workers or be injured by falling, rolling, or flying equipment.
  • Explosions and Fires: These are common in an environment where highly flammable materials are handled. They can cause severe burns, injuries, and even loss of life.
  • Vehicle Accidents: These occur when transportation used in and around the drilling sites is involved in an accident.
  • Electrical Burns: Faulty wiring or handling of electrical equipment can result in severe burns.
  • Insufficient Safety Measures: Lack of proper safety equipment or inadequate training can increase the likelihood of accidents.
  • Falls from Heights: Workers often have to work at great heights, increasing the risk of serious injuries from falls.
  • Lack of Supervision: The absence of proper supervision on job sites can lead to negligence and accidents.

Understanding the common causes of oilfield industry accidents can help prevent on-the-job injuries and contribute to creating safer work environments in the oilfield industry.
