Common Injuries in Oilfield Accidents

There are a number of ways workers can suffer injuries, and therefore quite a few obligations oil companies have in taking safety measures. Some of the common injuries include the following: 

Slip & Fall

Oilfields are often situated in remote and rugged terrain, where safety hazards lurk around every corner. Workers may slip and fall due to uneven surfaces, slick floors, or debris left on the ground. This type of accident can result in broken bones, head injuries, and other serious injuries.


Oilfields use a lot of heavy machinery and electrical equipment, and workers may come into contact with live wires or other electrical hazards. Electrocution can cause severe burns, and internal injuries, and even lead to wrongful death.

Chemical Exposure

Working with oil and gas involves coming into contact with a wide range of chemicals, some of which can be toxic if inhaled or ingested. Workers may suffer from respiratory issues, skin irritation, or other health problems due to chemical exposure. These are problems that often manifest themselves after the fact, and our Laredo oilfield accident attorney will work meticulously in gathering evidence of their origins. 

Rig Collapse

Oil rigs are massive structures that require careful maintenance and upkeep. If something goes wrong, such as a bolt or cable breaking, the entire structure can collapse, causing catastrophic injuries and death. 

To prevent these types of accidents, oilfield companies must take steps to ensure worker safety. This includes providing proper training, equipment, and personal protective gear, as well as following industry safety standards and regulations. Companies should also conduct regular inspections and maintenance on their equipment and structures to ensure that everything is in good working order. When companies fail in these and other obligations, they must be held accountable. 

The Limits of Workers Compensation 

Employees who are injured on the job in any industry are eligible for workers’ compensation. But workers comp is quite different from a personal injury lawsuit, and it’s important that the difference be understood. 

Workers’ compensation payouts are often lower than what might be obtained in a personal injury settlement. The reason is that workers comp covers injuries of all kinds, whereas personal injury settlements can only happen when there is negligence on the part of the employer. After a serious injury, the needs of an injured employee are likely to be considerable. 

However, Texas law does prohibit an employee from filing a lawsuit if they also file for workers comp. The decision on what path to pursue is a significant one. Our Laredo oilfield accident lawyers can be counted on to give reliable counsel, and then fight vigorously for what injured workers deserve.
