Common Oil & Gas Accidents & Injuries
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are approximately 27 fatalities for every 100,000 oil and gas workers, and countless other workers are seriously injured. Why is the injury and death rate so high in this industry?
There are many factors that make the oil and gas industry an inherently risky one for workers. The very nature of the work itself, long work hours, the use of dangerous machines and heavy equipment, and various weather events all play a role. Unfortunately, so does negligence. When workers and employers fail to follow proper safety protocols, catastrophic accidents can happen.
Some of the most common oil and gas accidents include:
- Fires and explosions
- Defective machinery and equipment
- Transportation accidents
- Slip and falls
- Exposure to harmful/toxic substances
- Faulty tools
These accidents often lead to devastating injuries, including but not limited to:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Crush injuries
- Accidental amputation
- Broken bones
- Severe lacerations and abrasions
- Internal organ damage
- Long-term illness
In many cases, these injuries prove fatal and families are left to pick up the pieces. At The Ammons Law Firm LLP, we believe that no one should have to fear being injured or killed in the workplace. Our Houston oil and gas injury lawyers are committed to fighting for justice and recovery on behalf of those affected by devastating oil and gas accidents.
