Failing to Check Equipment Levels
It is extremely important for pumps and rigs to stay within certain parameters of pressure. If a coworker or manager — whose job is to check on equipment levels — fails to do so, a serious and maybe even fatal accident may occur. Oilrig explosions affect everyone on the site due to their size and power.
On the other hand, the injury may be the fault of equipment defects, rather than the negligence of an employee or manager. There are countless equipment failures or malfunctions that may exist on an oilfield. In this case, I will help you pursue justice against either the manufacturer of the defective equipment or the maintenance team that is in charge of making sure everything is running correctly and safely.
Poor Training Procedures
In some circumstances, you could’ve been the cause of your injury because you were unaware of certain precautions and safety procedures that could have prevented the accident from happening in the first place. If you weren’t trained thoroughly enough to where your trainer failed to cover certain safety procedures, they may be obliged to help pay for your pain and suffering.
Ignoring Industry Regulations
There are numerous safety rules, laws, and regulations in Texas that prevent injuries and deaths on the field. However, sometimes there are upper-level managers that put a priority of efficiency or profit over the safety of their employees.
Your attorney will be there for you so you can hold people accountable for their negligent and careless actions or management styles, but you must hire an experienced oilfield accident attorney to work your case. I have helped clients throughout the Houston, Texas area, West Texas, and Southeast New Mexico.
