Drilling Rig and Related Injury Lawsuits

Date: December 14, 2009

Working on or around drill rigs, transporting materials and equipment to and from drill rigs and interacting with drill rig construction and operation can be very dangerous. Companies involved in the operation of the sites and drill rigs are responsible for injuries which occur to workers on site and to the public injured due to company negligence.

If you are a worker injured at a drill site, a worker injured in an off site drill related accident or a member of the public injured as a result of a drill company\’s negligence, you may have a claim for money damages.

Drilling rig related accidents can include drill site fires, explosions,chemical exposure, truck accidents, heavy equipment accidents and other accidents which can result in injury or death.
