This is why our reliable legal team works diligently on your behalf to recover the maximum compensation you deserve for your injuries, including lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Establishing fault for oil and gas explosion accidents
There are many factors involved when it comes to determining liability for oil and gas explosions. Working with metal machinery and fuel can be a lethal combination under unfortunate conditions. Some of the leading causes of oil and gas explosions include:
- Oil rig fires and explosions. Even small fires can quickly escalate to an explosion in an oil field. Workers are at risk of toxic fume inhalation and serious burn injuries.
- Blowouts. Oil rig blowouts can cause extremely dangerous, life-threatening explosions.
- Corroded and damaged oil pipes. Compromised pipes can allow oil leaks into or onto the ground. It only takes one spark to potentially ignite the leaked oil into an explosion.
- Defective products and equipment failures. The products and equipment used on an oil field must meet safety standards to prevent serious dangers. When these products are defective or improperly maintained, they can cause explosions.
Determining negligence in gas and oil accidents is a lengthy and complicated process. As your legal advisors, we thoroughly investigate the evidence in your case, including interviews with involved parties. Sometimes multiple people or entities can be negligent for your accident, including oil and gas companies and contractors. We earnestly work to obtain a just settlement, but our skilled litigators also prepare for court on your behalf.
