Liability for Oilfield Defective Equipment Accidents:

Oilfield defective machinery accidents are devastating and preventable, often caused by the negligence of training protocols or adequate manufacturing. Since oilfield defective equipment carries inherent safety risks, the oil industry is legally required to follow strict training protocols and regulations. The purpose of these strict training protocols is to protect workers’ health and ensure a safe working environment on the oilfield or any other related job site.

The sad truth of the matter: these training methods are usually insufficient and poorly executed due to various factors. When strict regulations and training protocols get ignored, the results are irreconcilably catastrophic: severe injuries or the loss of an innocent life.
