Oil Field Injuries and Wrongful Death
Were You Injured in an Oil and Gas Field Accident in the Barnett Shale Field?
North Texas and the Barnett Shale are in the middle of an oil and natural gas boom. This oil and gas work is dangerous work. The Barnett Shale Field is a huge reservoir of natural gas beneath a large section of of Northern Texas. Every possible protection must be in place to protect workers from personal injury and wrongful death.
Oil workers can stuffer deadly serious and fatal catastrophic injuries on the job or work site. Many of these accidents occur because of heavy equipment and mechanical failures. Others personal injuries occur because lack of proper and safe training, from failure to use proper safeguards or from errors in the drilling process.
While these injuries can vary, many can be catastrophic — especially when you are dealing with pipes and industrial equipment that weighs thousands of pounds. This is true when oil field workers are forced to work long stretches of time without adequate rest periods and forced to take chances or cut corners with their safety protocols just to complete their work faster.
Shale field exploration and gas extraction often requires specialized heavy equipment and operations that make shale fields among the most dangerous workplaces in America.
