Comprehensive Help for Workers in Denver & Jefferson County
Working in an oil field provides a necessary service for residents of the state of Colorado and the entire U.S. These jobs, however, can be very dangerous and workers often face serious injuries from everyday on-the-job tasks.
Accidents can occur for any of the following reasons:
- Improper safety conditions
- Dangerous, slippery, or otherwise unsafe ground or platforms
- Fires or explosions
- Equipment failure
Whatever the situation, if you’ve been hurt while working on an oil field, processing plant, or transport center, The O’Connell Law Firm, P.C. may be able to help. Contact our skilled personal injury attorney today.
Injuries Sustained in Dangerous Conditions
Oil field workers often face a number of permanent and non-permanent harm. These include slips, trips, and falls, broken bones, hearing loss, brain or spinal injuries, and injuries to your muscles or skin. These can result in having to take time off of work to recover as well as permanent disability.
While observing basic safety rules can greatly reduce the risk of injury in this inherently dangerous area of work, sometimes oil field workers, processing plants, or transport facilities skirt safety regulations in order to cut costs. In these cases, filing a personal injury claim may be a way to prevent future accident from occurring, giving owners and bosses financial penalties unless they follow the rules and ensure that their workers are well cared for.
