Types of Oil Field Accidents

Although the oil industry has advanced their drilling technologies over the years, oil drilling rigs and offshore oil platforms are dangerous places to work.

Oilfield workers can be injured due to:

  • Unsafe conditions
  • Poorly maintained equipment
  • Malfunctioning equipment
  • Improper training
  • Falls from great heights
  • Crushing accidents
  • Explosions
  • Electrocution
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals

When you call the Law Office of Shane McClelland, we can promptly investigate your accident and begin the evidence discovery process. We take the time to interview workers or bystanders, consult with industry experts, and identify the negligent parties. Our Katy oil field injury attorney can also assist if your loved one was killed in an oil field accident and you wish to pursue a wrongful death claim.

Oil Drilling Rig Accidents and Liability

Dangerous drilling and pipeline work have become a way of life in Texas. When these jobs result in injury to you or the death of a loved one, you need an experienced oil rig accident attorney in Katy who understands product liability and premises liability issues as well as the different sources of compensation that may be available for your claim. Depending on the job site and location, several different companies and/or parties can be held liable for the incident. Identifying the responsible parties and holding them accountable is the key to collecting the maximum compensation for your injuries.

A typical oil field injury claim could implicate:

  • A subcontractor
  • A third party on the job site
  • A government entity
  • An equipment manufacturer

Filing a lawsuit against the oil company, an oil refinery equipment manufacturer, or an oil field maintenance contractor can sometimes be the best way to recover damages. The Law Office of Shane McClelland can help you determine the appropriate avenue to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
