Injuries Due to Overwork, Improper Training, and Unsafe Oil or Gas Work

Working on an oil or gas rig can be dangerous, and there is no safe way to speed up the process or cut corners for increased economic gain without placing the livelihood and lives of workers at stake. When employers fail to properly train employees, limit work hours to reasonable time frames, and neglect to maintain equipment properly, injuries and/or deaths are inevitable in this field of work. All employers in the state of West Virginia are required by state and federal law to provide employees with a safe and healthy work environment, and take necessary measures to protect them. If your employer has neglected to reasonably safeguard you from workplace dangers and you have been seriously injured, contact our law firm right away at: (304) 292-4381. We know that workers’ compensation is inadequate to cover your expenses while injured. We offer a free initial consultation for injured workers, as well as survivors of those whose lives have been lost, to determine whether a personal injury or wrongful death claim is an option for recovery of your losses. We serve injured victims in Wheeling, Morgantown, Huntington, Charleston, Parkersburg, and throughout West Virginia.
