Charleston Oil & Gas Accidents
Have You Been Involved in an Oil or Gas Accident?
Working in the oil and gas industry can be a potentially lucrative venture, but also a very dangerous one. Although the U.S. energy boom has made job opportunities available in the oil field and gas plant, inexperienced workers, lack of strict regulations, and lack of proper training have led to poor practices and unsafe working conditions.
Accidents which can occur in the oil filed include the following:
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Fire and gas leak explosions
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Dangerous malfunctions with machinery, heavy equipment, and pipes
- Dangerous blowouts in drilling operations
At Berthold Law Firm, PLLC, we understand that pursuing compensation for oil field and gas accidents can be arduous due to such a complex legal process. If you have been seriously injured in an accident caused by oil or gas, our Charleston legal team is dedicated to protecting your rights.
