Oil Derrick Accident

Oil derrick accidents can cause traumatic injuries and even the wrongful death of a loved one. Oil derrick workers often have to work at extreme heights, from which they can easily fall and suffer catastrophic injury. Furthermore, extremely heavy equipment and combustible substances are routinely used in and around oil derricks.

Common oil derrick injuries that Kirkendall Dwyer LLP handles include broken bones or fractures, burns from rig fires, chemical burns, fall injuries, crush injuries, spine injuries, loss of hearing or loss of sight injuries, brain injuries, as well as many others.

Workers’ compensation is generally not an adequate remedy for an injured oil field worker. Since your injury was likely caused by someone else’s faulty oil rig equipment or someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to additional financial recovery.

If you have suffered an oil derrick injury, don’t let the companies you worked hard for give you the run-around. Let the oil field attorneys at Kirkendall Dwyer LLP make those at fault answer for their conduct.
