Causes of Oilfield Accidents & Injuries

The average oilfield is a workplace of hazards. Heating substances, pressurized pipes, electronics, heavy equipment, and more are all present on oilfields and oilrigs. It is your employer’s responsibility to make certain all safety precautions are made to prevent accidents involving these hazards.

Safety failures that can cause an oilfield accident include but are not limited to:

  • Inadequate training: Every person who works on an oilfield must be highly trained in terms of both their unique job responsibilities and safety etiquette. Failing to train everyone accordingly and provide routine safety retraining puts everyone at risk of a workplace accident.
  • Lack of supervision: An oilfield will only run as smoothly as its supervision allows. Did your supervisor fail to provide oversight in your workspace, adding to the chances of some form of accident occurring?
  • Poorly maintained equipment: All parts of the equipment on an oilfield need regular inspections and maintenance. Part failures can cause a disaster, such as a pipe explosion or fire.

Wrongful Death Claims for Surviving Family Members

Unfortunately, oilfield accidents are rarely minor. The Department of Labor (DOL) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) note that oilfield and oilrig work are some of the most dangerous in the country, resulting in fatalities in many cases. If you lost a loved one in an oilfield accident, then we can help you file a wrongful death claim to pursue justice for them and their memory.

In a wrongful death claim following an oilfield accident, you can seek damages for:

  • Cost of final medical treatments
  • Pain and suffering experienced by decedent and family
  • Wages decedent would have likely earned in their lifetime
  • Funeral and burial expenses

  • Mr. Clark clearly cares about his clients and goes out of his way to keep them informed, and make them feel at ease.

    “Mr. Clark was able to handle my divorce which I had been told by several attorneys, would be a very difficult divorce to file. He was able to handle it, and within one month I was divorced. Mr. Clark clearly cares about his clients and goes out of his way to keep them informed, and make them feel at ease. I would highly recommend Mr. Clark. I foresee Mr. Clark as being one of the top attorneys in Texas. Thank you Mr. Clark.”

  • Stephen made the most difficult time in my life bearable, and for that I am forever thankful.

    “I had the privilege of having Stephen Clark represent me in my child custody case in Collin County (July 2015). Stephen was very professional and him and his assistant were always very quick to respond to any concerns and questions that I had. Stephen first met me in his office on a holiday weekend to discuss my stressful situation. As much as I hated giving him weekly updates of the chaos in my life, he always listened and knew what to say to calm me down. My Ex hired what he calls a "bulldog" attorney who has practiced law for over 38 years in Collin County. Although it intimidated me a little bit, Stephen did not let that phase him and did not back down in the courtroom. Stephen made the most difficult time in my life bearable, and for that I am forever thankful. He did what was in the best interest of my daughter and now I am happy to say that I have peace in my daily routine.”

  • After less than ten minutes of deliberation, the Jury returned with a unanimous verdict of Not Guilty.

    “My experience with Mr. Clark was nothing short of superb. Following a marijuana related DUI arrest during which no evidence was found, Mr. Clark helped guide me through the long, arduous court process and ultimately mounted a successful defense against the state in a trial by jury. The prosecution brought forward the "Drug Recognition Expert" who arrested me that night as well as a toxicologist from Austin. Mr. Clark effectively cast doubt on the Expert's ability to objectively judge who may or may not be under the influence of any substance, then proceeded to question the toxicologist until he admitted that the results of the blood test they had taken from me that night were inconclusive. After less than ten minutes of deliberation, the Jury returned with a unanimous verdict of Not Guilty. I would highly recommend Mr. Stephen Clark for his professionalism, courtesy, and expertise.”

  • He was No Nonsense with the opposing party and we had a smooth and expedient victory.

    “Mr. Clark won a Breach of Contract case for me in a very short amount of time. I am very pleased to have worked with him. I most appreciate the fact that he kept on top of everything! He prompted me throughout the different stages of my case. He was No Nonsense with the opposing party and we had a smooth and expedient victory.”

    Diana

  • He was respectful in every situation and was mindful of the details involved.

    “Stephen was brought in on my case involving divorce with children and has been a great help. He checked in regularly and kept me updated on anything going on. He let me know if there was anything he needed from me to move things along. He advised me after carefully researching and even asking his peers what would be best. He was respectful in every situation and was mindful of the details involved.”

    Jeremy

  • I highly recommend Stephen Clark for your family court matters.

    “Mr. Clark recently helped me with a Pro Se dissolution. We have 3 children. Mr. Clark was very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of family court in Dallas County. He offered excellent advice for structuring the decree to be fair to all parties (as that was my wish) and I was able to complete the Prove Up with no issues. His input allowed me to answer the judge's questions correctly to avoid the pitfalls that I saw others make that same day in court. I was well armed ahead of time with instructions on how to file, and what to do and say on the day of the prove up. It was reassuring to already have ALL of the documents filled out ahead of time as I saw others struggling to finish up the paperwork that the court clerk handed out on prove up day. His fees were very reasonable and he was very timely in preparing the documents and make the few modifications that I requested. He was accommodating of my schedule and respectful of my time. After our initial meeting, we were able to correspond through email and that is a big help as we're all faced with very busy schedules. I highly recommend Stephen Clark for your family court matters.”

    Brian

  • Because of him, I have one of the greatest relationships that a father could ask to have with his daughter (My Everything)

    “Mr. Clark is the most Genuine, Selfless, human being I've encountered. His integrity is bar none. He went above and beyond mine, and everyone else's expectation and delivered results no one thought were possible. Because of him, I have one of the greatest relationships that a father could ask to have with his daughter (My Everything) Thank you, Mr. Clark. Thank you for believing in me…”

    Timothy

  • Another attorney I hired made many errors. Mr. Clark was able to take my case in midstream & "rescue" me

    “ He came highly recommended to me & now I in confidence would recommend Stephen Clark to any one needing attorney services.”

    Patrick

  • Thank goodness that chapter is closed, and I’m now ready for a much brighter and happier future.

    “Just wanted to let you know that I was happy with the level of attention you gave to every detail regarding my divorce. It was quick and painless, and I never had to take off work to get the paperwork done. I appreciate you representing me in court. Thank goodness that chapter is closed, and I’m now ready for a much brighter and happier future.”

    Teresa

  • You showed caring, as well as being professional in court proceedings and that impressed on opposing counsel that you meant business.

    “I had the opportunity to work with Stephen Clark on what I consider a very difficult divorce that was made worse by the mistakes of my previous lawyer. She did not present any evidence on my behalf and the judge made a ruling based on missing evidence. Then Stephen came in and tried to correct the wrong. Even though we could not get the ruling reversed he tried hard and I felt did everything he could by law. However the judge refused to hear our presentation, which could have been the turning point. I also feel you were there as an advisor and friend not just someone there to take my money which means a lot to a person that is going thru traumatic events. You showed caring, as well as being professional in court proceedings and that impressed on opposing counsel that you meant business. I know you're going to do well and be a high stakes attorney, but don’t lose sight of the little guy or right from wrong and true justice because from what I saw from the other lawyers I really lost trust in the justice system.”
