Texas Drilling Rig Accidents and Injuries

Although the oil industry has advanced their drilling technologies over the years, oil drilling rigs and offshore oil platforms are dangerous places to work.  Oil field workers and oil rig workers face several different types of hazards in their work environments. From exposure to toxic chemicals to the exposed moving parts of heavy industrial equipment; the towering oil rigs, oil platforms, and pump jacks are simply dangerous to work on. Even when using the most optimum safety conditions, oil rigs and drilling accidents can occur.

Oil Rig Accidents and Drilling Injury Claims

Oilfield workers can be injured due to unsafe conditions, poorly maintained equipment, or malfunctioning equipment.  An oil rig accident, a natural gas drilling site injury or offshore oil platform accident can sometimes result in death due to heavy machinery accidents, falls from great heights, crushing accidents, explosions and electricity hazards.
