Equipment Accidents

ND Oil Field Injury Attorneys | North Dakota Oil Rig Accident Lawyers

A large number of oil field accidents each year are caused by dangerous or defective oil field equipment. Oil and gas drilling companies are often negligent in maintaining their heavy equipment. In order to meet high customer demands, some oil drilling companies allow equipment to remain in the field without the required routine maintenance. In some situations, equipment left in operation beyond recommend service dates can cause catastrophic injuries to oil field workers. Oil and gas drilling equipment may malfunction for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Metal fatigue
  • Improper use
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Overstress
  • Corrosion/corrosion fatigue
  • Welding failures
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Design defects

In addition, if the accident was caused by defective manufacture or design of oil field equipment or machinery, we can help you file a product liability lawsuit against the equipment manufacturer.
