Oil Field Explosions
Oilfield work is considered to be one of the most dangerous professions in the world. The risk that comes with the daily demands of the job constantly place workers in the position of possible injury or death. As with negligence, an injury or death in an oilfield can occur through an act or lack thereof on the part of management. Proper training in the handling of dangerous materials or equipment can limit accidents, but failing to provide this training will greatly increase the chances of a mishap. Any of the following can result from the dangers of oil field hazards:
- Severe burns
- Deafening (from an explosion)
- Heavy equipment-related injuries
- Severe exhaustion
If a worker has suffered an injury or if a family has lost a loved one due to oilfield work, a personal injury attorney should immediately be contacted. Consider one from McAllen’s J. Gonzalez Law Firm as their experience in oil industry accident litigation is second to none.
