Common Injuries Experienced by Oil and Gas Workers
If you work in the oil or gas industry, you know how dangerous it is when a pipe bursts, a heavy machine breaks, or toxic chemicals begin to leak. In many cases, such accidents can result in serious injury. Some of the most common injuries experienced by workers in this industry include:
- Major burns
- Slips and falls
- Injury by heavy machinery
- Brain and spine injuries
- Complications resulting from exposure to toxic chemicals
- Multiple fractures
As an oil or gas worker, you are seven times more likely to be seriously hurt or killed on the job, when compared with workers in other industries. With the frequency of explosions, blowouts, fires, and other potentially violent accidents, it is no surprise that so many oil and gas employees or contractors have been hurt at work. However, though the industry is dangerous, your rights are the same, and our firm is here to protect you. Our legal teams have talent and experience to compete with the biggest companies in the world.
