Poor equipment maintenance

Oil and gas drilling worksites are known for being extremely dangerous places. But the fact remains that most of the injuries and accidents that take place can be easily avoided if the necessary maintenance and safety protocols are carried out. Unfortunately, many oilfield owners tacitly encourage substandard maintenance in a bid to save costs. The results of doing this are often disastrous.

Legal representatives in Midland and Odessa at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess have more than two decades of experience in handling complex offshore accident cases. Our attorneys have wide-ranging experience in representing offshore workers who’ve suffered injuries due to improper equipment maintenance. We also rope in financial professionals, medical professionals, and engineers to analyze the chain of events and build a strong case. We handle a wide variety of cases arising from:

  • Failure to maintain joints, valves, and pipes
  • Failure to monitor corrosion and metal fatigue
  • Negligent repair of gas pipelines
  • Failure to control valves

Poor equipment maintenance could lead to several types of injuries ranging from minor to severe. Some of these include:

  • Back injury
  • Head injury
  • Amputation
  • Permanent scarring and disfigurement

Our legal representatives handle claims involving all types of strains, sprains, injuries, soft-tissue trauma, broken bones, and paralysis. We help you get compensation for losses such as physical pain and suffering, lost wages and income, loss of companionship, and unreimbursed medical expenses.
