New Orleans Oil Field Injury

Our country runs on oil, and there are good men and women putting their lives on the line day in and day out to help make sure that the oil we need for everything.

Yet, despite safety regulations and standards, workplace injuries in the gas and oil industry happen far too often than they should. From safety precautions getting ignored to overworked employees and faulty equipment, things can turn ugly on the job real fast.

If you or a loved one work or have worked in the oil fields and have been or were injured on the job, you may be entitled to fair compensation for your injuries and suffering.

Common Causes of Louisiana Oil Field Injuries

While each situation is unique, below are some of the most common reasons or causative factors we see as it relates to work-related injuries, hospitalization and deaths in the Louisiana oil field industry.

Oilfield injuries are often the direct or indirect result of:

  • Toxic chemicals and/or fumes
  • Fatigued equipment operators
  • Poor communication
  • Fires and explosions
  • Falls or spills
  • Insufficient safeguards
  • Failure to adequately maintain equipment
  • Inadequately trained or supervised employees
  • Intoxicated workers
  • Failure to observe safety standards and precautions
  • Defective or malfunctioning equipment or other machinery

If any of the above sound familiar, our Louisiana oil field injury attorneys at GCJ Law firm can help. Our team will fight for your rights, help investigate claims and be the advocate you need in your corner to get you the compensation you deserve.

Common Types of Louisiana Oil / Gas Rig Injuries

Harvesting and working with oil is an inherently dangerous profession, requiring significant safety training and often involving demanding physical requirements.

Working in what are often isolated locations with major industrial equipment only lends to the risk involved, with many accidents being both life-altering and catastrophic in nature. As such, oil rig injuries are often degrees more devastating than other types of workers’ compensation claims.

Below is a list of some of the most common types of injuries we see sustained while working in Louisiana Oil Fields:

  • Bone breaks and fractures
  • Burns
  • Orthopedic damage
  • Neck and back trauma
  • Falls, trips or slips
  • TBI
  • Eye trauma or vision loss
  • Loss of limb
  • Chemical exposure
  • Lung irritation
  • Internal traumas
  • Skin irritation

While injuries are not always preventable, there are a number of precautions that can be taken in order to help ensure the safety and well-being of workers and decrease the likelihood of adverse events from occurring.

If you feel like your employer could have or may have been able to do more, but didn’t, give the GCJ law firm a call today to consult with one of our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys.
