Common Dangers for Onshore Oil Rig Workers
Similar to individuals who are injured in offshore oil rig accidents, workers
who are around onshore drilling rigs face much of the same problems. According
to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, workers on oil rigs have
an above average risk of sustaining a nonfatal injury during the course
of their work.
Some of the most common hazards that they face include:
- Fire & Explosions
- Falling & Falling Objects
- Hazardous Machinery
- On-the-Job Fatigue
Help for Victims of Oil Rig Explosions
One of the deadliest forms of an oil rig accident is an explosion. While
these are relatively rare, the damage that they can cause is enormous-and
the affects can be life-altering for the victims and their families. One
of the most infamous oil rig explosions involved the Deepwater Horizon
offshore rig, which exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. The incident
resulted in the loss of 11 lived and injuries to dozens of the workers.
Our firm was involved in representing nearly one third of the crew. In
fact, more crew members of that oil rig turned to our firm for help than
any other firm in the country.
