Working in an oil field provides a necessary service for residents of the state of Colorado and the entire U.S. These jobs, however, can be very dangerous and workers often face serious injuries from everyday on-the-job tasks.
Accidents can occur for any of the following reasons:
- Improper safety conditions
- Dangerous, slippery, or otherwise unsafe ground or platforms
- Fires or explosions
- Equipment failure

Injuries Sustained in Dangerous Conditions
Oil field workers often face a number of permanent and non-permanent harm. These include slips, trips and falls, broken bones, hearing loss, brain or spinal injuries, and injuries to the muscles or skin. These can result in having to take time off of work to recover as well as permanent disability.
While observing basic safety rules can greatly reduce the risk of injury in this inherently dangerous area of work, sometimes oil field workers, processing plants, or transport facilities skirt safety regulations in order to cut costs. In these cases, filing a personal injury claim may be a way to prevent future accidents from occurring, giving owners and supervisors financial penalties unless they follow the rules and ensure that their workers are well cared for.

How much will it cost me to bring a oil field accident claim?
In most cases you will pay nothing at all whether your case is successful or not.
Is there a time limit?
Yes. In most cases two years, but there can be exceptions. Now is the best time to act.
In most cases? What are the exceptions?
In high risk or complex cases we may agree with you from the outset that a success fee of up to 25% may be charged. This will not be payable if your claim is unsuccessful.
Will I have to go to court?
Probably not. Most cases settle. We often need to issue court proceeding to move matters along but it is rare for a case to go all the way to trial.
