Types of North Dakota Oil Field Accidents
The oil and gas drilling industry is a dangerous one, as many may know. There are countless ways in which a worker can become injured while performing their job duties. The machinery involved in drilling operations is heavy and complex- a double-threat for workers. If this equipment is not properly maintained and handled, then workers are at risk for life-threatening accidents and injuries. One common way that workers sustain oil field injuries is in
gas truck accidents. One way that drilling companies transport their gas is by way of truck. If these trucks are involved in collisions then they pose an environmental threat as well as a threat to the safety of individuals. Since the truck is carrying a flammable material, there could be a
gas & oil explosion.
Oil rig workers may also become ill due to toxic exposure. If an employer does not provide their employees with the necessary safety equipment while dealing with these toxic chemicals, they may be liable in a personal injury claim. When equipment is not properly and regularly maintained, workers run the risk of becoming injured because of an
equipment malfunction, which is common in an industrial workplace. Any of these accidents can leave an individual with
catastrophic injuries that cause permanent disabilities. And finally, the very worst and most extreme types of accidents in this field result in death. If your loved one was killed in an oil field accident, our personal injury law firm can help you file a
wrongful death claim.
