Oil Rig Risks

Oil is a widespread commodity used in a number of products such as transportation fuels, plastics, and other synthetic materials that millions of Americans rely on. The workers who drill for oil and gas are in one of the most dangerous professions in the country. Oil rig workers are often in isolated areas, working with hazardous materials, and are at risk of experiencing more than a handful of catastrophes.

At the Chris Mayo Law Firm, our San Antonio personal injury team understands the physical and financial stress of being in an oil rig accident. That is why we strongly encourage you to seek legal compensation if you are the victim of negligence on a rig. Our legal team understands the stress that working in the oil industry can put on you and your family, and we are passionate about fighting for the rights of workers who are suffering.

Common Oil Rig Hazards

Some of the most common oil rig accidents are blowouts that cause fires and explosions, but there are still plenty of other issues that can occur on an oil rig that also lead to severe injury. Possible oil rig injuries include damage to the brain, spinal cord, burns, broken bones, and even chemical poisoning. Dealing with any of these issues can bring on expensive medical bills or emotional trauma. It is important to consider seeking legal action so that you may start recovering. Common causes of these injuries include:

  • Malfunction of heavy machinery
  • Equipment defects
  • Lack of proper training
  • Lack of appropriate safety equipment
  • Fall accidents

Our San Antonio legal team can represent clients involved in any of these accidents, and we will work hard to make the process of recovery easy for you.
