Working in a Texas oil field or in the gas industry can be a dangerous occupation. The risk of accidents and injuries can be great due to the nature of the work. If safety standards are not maintained, proper training is inadequate, if errors are made in the drilling process or equipment malfunctions or is defective, the worksite may be set for a serious accident. Working around industrial pipes and drilling equipment weighing thousands of pounds puts workers at risk when drilling fires or explosions occur. Oil field workers can be struck by the falling debris of pipes and steel rigging or other objects, can suffer burns from fires and explosions, as well as a host of other injuries, many of which can be catastrophic and even fatal.

Employers or the manufacturers of equipment who are negligent in their actions are often at fault in oil field accidents and injuries. Employers are obligated to provide safe working conditions and sites for those they employ; when safety is sacrificed for profits, they may be held liable for the injuries which result.
