Why Do Oil Rig Accidents Occur in Oklahoma?

In many situations, the extreme levels of pressure involved in oil and natural gas extraction may cause machinery to fail, while poor communication between team members, poorly trained employees, safety violations and inadequate safety mechanisms may also be to blame. Even though the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) maintains strict guidelines for how oil rigs in the oil and gas industry should operate, some companies fail to follow these regulations — and serious accidents, such as oil field explosions, may happen as a result. Because of this, oilfield workers are often at high risk of sustaining serious injuries on the job. Many oil field workers are injured in fires and explosions, and others are hurt in falls, electrical accidents, dangerous exposure to chemicals, equipment failures, and more.

There are many different types of injuries workers may suffer from oil field accidents, and the following are some of the most common oilfield injuries:

What To Do After an Accident in an Oil Field in McAlester?

Your first step, after seeking immediate medical attention if your injuries are serious, is to notify your employer in writing that an oil field accident has occurred. You should do this even if you don’t believe your injuries are significant, as some injuries take some time to show real symptoms. If you will need to miss work to receive medical treatment, you may need to file a workers’ compensation claim to provide you with temporary oil field compensation until you can return to your job. It’s best to work with a knowledgeable oil field accident lawyer to represent your best interests and to respond swiftly if your employer or its insurance company attempts to deny your oil field claim.
