Gas Pipeline and Oil Rig Catastrophes
No doubt about it--jobs on platforms, oil rigs, and pipe decks are dangerous. Every day, people work with heavy equipment and uncovered oil machinery. Even though these workers are skilled, some errors will happen, like oil spills and rig falls. Oil rig and gas pipeline accidents rarely result in minor injuries. Oil and gas are flammable and explosive, respectively, and these operations use heavy equipment. When injuries occur, they are severe, if not fatal. Our workers compensation lawyers can get you the help you recover lost damages if you have been in a gas pipeline or oil rig accident on the job.
Injuries from oil and gas errors can include:
- Crush injuries, like crushed foot or crushed finger
- Broken bones
- Tool pusher injury
