Drilling Rig Injuries

Occupations that involve drilling for oil, on land or at sea, are some of the most hazardous and injury-prone jobs in America. The severe injuries and fatal accidents that can occur create complex issues of liability and who is responsible for paying compensation to clients, including third-party claims against equipment manufacturers. Victims of oilfield accidents worry about losing their jobs, supporting their families and recovering from their injuries after an incident has occurred.
