Holding All Parties Responsible for Your Injuries with an Oil Field Injury Lawyer
Obtaining Justice in Your Oil Field Injury Case
Oil and gas extraction is big business in the United States. About 500,000
people work in the field when it comes to oil and gas extraction across
the country, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
The work undertaken by oil field workers is extremely dangerous. The Occupational
Safety and Health Administration rates oil field work in the extraction
industry to be seven times more dangerous than the average of all industrial
Approximately 80 oil field workers are killed annual in accidents. Thousands
of hard-working individuals are injured in oil field accidents each year.
An oil field injury lawyer is an invaluable resource when it comes to
protecting your own legal rights in the aftermath of an accident.
Because of the complexity of the oil and gas industry, a primary challenge
associated with protecting your legal interests is making sure all negligent
parties are duly held responsible for your injuries. This task alone underscores
the importance of discussing your case with an oil field injury lawyer
from The Doan Law Firm legal team at (800) 349-0000.
Justice Demands Making All Responsible Parties Pay for Your Oil Field Accident Injuries
Oftentimes, the drilling and operation of an oil rig involves a web of
different legal entities. These can include everything from an oil refinery
company, an oil transport enterprise, a rig operator, equipment manufacturers,
land owners, the companies purchasing refined product, and other contractors
involved in a site.
The stark reality is that in your oil field injury case, multiple parties
may be responsible for the accident that resulted in your injuries. For
example, if there was some sort of mechanical malfunction at a drill site,
a number of parties could be legally liable for the accident and your
injuries. These may include parties ranging from an equipment manufacturer
who created a defective item to the rig operator who may have failed to
properly train you, and the rest of your crew, for this type of event.
Others may be legally responsible for your injuries as well. These may
include companies purchasing refined product, oil transport company, and
even a refinery. A skilled, experienced oil field injury lawyer is charged
with demonstrating the legal connection between these different enterprises,
the accident, and your injuries, damages, and losses.
