Drilling Rig Accidents
Working on drilling rigs is dangerous. As a result, drilling rig accidents happen, although it is our experiences that most are preventable. The companies in charge of these well sites are responsible for making the sites and drilling rigs as safe as possible for the men who work there. OSHA and other safety regulations are meant to protect workers, but all too often these safety standards are ignored or disregarded.
If you have been injured in a drilling rig accident, you may be able to get compensation in addition to workers' compensation benefits if another company's carelessness or recklessness caused your injuries.
The dangerous conditions on drilling rigs include blowouts, fires, exposure to toxic gases and chemicals like hydrogen sulfide or sour gas, and gas explosions. The use of heavy equipment on drilling rigs increases the possibility of personal injury or wrongful death.
During this time of increased oil and gas exploration, accidents on drilling rigs are becoming more common as oil and gas companies put more and more rigs into action. Many of these accidents and injuries could have been prevented if not for the negligence or carelessness of one or more companies or employees.
