What Are Common Oil Field Injuries?

Thousands of hardworking Texans work in oil fields to provide for their families. Unfortunately, the highly combustible materials and heavy machinery used in oil fields can sometimes cause very serious accidents. These accidents can side-line workers for extended periods of time and leave them with exorbitant medical bills.

Although oil companies should be taking all of the standard precautions to ensure the safety of their workers, some companies are not proactive enough. Oil companies can be held accountable for on-duty injuries that their employees sustain.
