An Aggressive Advocate, When You Need It Most.

Oil And Gas Worker Injuries

Advocating For Injured Oil And Gas Workers

As the demand for crude oil and natural gas production has increased over the past two decades, exponential increases in drilling activity have occurred in Pennsylvania and other shale-rich areas across the country. Both consumers and companies have benefited from the boom in supply. To support these gains, unfortunately, employee safety often takes a hit.

Drilling for oil and natural gas is hazardous even when all safety protocols are followed and machines are up to code. The risks multiply on sites with little oversight and minimal concern for workplace safety. The extreme increase in demand for crew members and equipment has led to undertrained employees and improperly maintained equipment being placed into service.

When accidents do happen on-site, oil and gas workers suffering injuries and their loved ones can contact my Williamsport law firm, Stapp Law, LLC. For over two decades, I have represented central Pennsylvania employees in various industries who file workers’ comp claims. Guided by my extensive legal background, I navigate the workers’ comp process and hold employers responsible for their negligence.

Using The Law To Ensure Companies Compensate You For Noncompliance

Relying on inexperienced oil and gas field workers and unsafe equipment has resulted in a significant increase in work-related injuries, including pipeline explosions, blowouts and deaths.

When your employer or supervisor puts profits ahead of your well-being, I take action. As a committed attorney, I provide aggressive and skilled counsel to those who have been hurt as a result of:

  • Fall injuries
  • Injuries from falling objects
  • Well pad injuries
  • Truck accidents
  • Power tool injuries
  • Chemical exposure
  • Large machinery and equipment accidents

If you have been injured during the course of your employment in the oil or gas industry, contact me right away. During your free, no-obligation consultation, I will study the events leading up to your accident, review medical records and analyze any forms your employer has asked you to sign. I will take the time to explain your legal options and the results of the decisions you make.
