Oil Field Explosions and Fires
A large number of injuries that occur on oil fields result from explosions and fires. The injuries are frequently burns, which can be extremely serious and cause a lifetime of pain and issues. Burns often result in scarring that can require additional medical attention, such as plastic surgery. Burns can also be life-threatening, as they open the body up to infection.
Burns can also occur from chemical exposure and electrocution. These injuries can be just as serious and have lasting medical and health consequences for the victim.
Eagle Ford Shale Sites
One of the newest types of oil field sites involve the tapping of Eagle Ford shale. This type of rock has been discovered to harbor natural gas and other oil resources. As a result, many oil fields and construction sites have sprung up in South Texas in order to capitalize on the naturally occurring pockets of this resource in the area. In some cases, the job site was erected so quickly that some safety precautions may have been missed. Whether the injuries resulted from the lack of safety precautions or other negligence, it is important that you seek the advice and guidance of an attorney who can help you take action through a personal injury lawsuit.
