Oil Field Accident Attorneys in Tulsa OK

Have you or a loved one suffered an injury or death while working in the oil field industry?

Oklahoma helps fuel the entire world with its reserves of crude oil and natural gas, but the work of extracting those resources is dangerous. According to the latest data from the Center for Public Integrity (CPI), more than 1,500 workers were killed during oil and gas extraction work between 2008 and 2017. Many of these deaths could have been avoided and unfortunately may have stemmed from another worker's negligence. Oklahoma is a top-five state for oil and gas production, and, unfortunately, death and serious injury will continue to be risks in the oil field. Families should know who to turn to for their wrongful death claim or to fight for compensation following a life-changing injury.

The families of oil field workers often file wrongful death claims to cover funeral and burial expenses, financial loss, compensation for grief, loss of companionship, and much more. This means that even though death has occurred, the family can still file a claim against oil field owners for wrongful death due to inadequate supervision, worker fatigue, failure to follow industry safety requirements, improper maintenance of tools, or any other forms of negligence. When a death occurs in an oil field, the worker's family needs a legal partner they can trust to look out for their best interests.

In addition to wrongful death claims, workers that sustain serious injuries in the oil field due to another worker's negligence may be eligible to file a personal injury claim. This includes head injuries, back injuries, broken bones, loss of limbs, burns, and much more. When these injuries occur at no fault of the victim, they deserve to be compensated for their injuries and other devastating consequences that may arise. Injured workers may also have the option of filing a product liability claim if defective machinery or tools were the cause of an oil field injury; however, this may depend on several factors and will require evaluation by an experienced attorney for a successful outcome.

If your loved one died or was injured while working an oil field job due to another individual's negligence, you need an experienced attorney at your side to help fight for the compensation you deserve.
