Inherently dangerous work sites, including oilfields and construction sites, are replete with hazardous conditions and perilous situations. Heavy equipment, dangerous machinery and scaffolding all contribute to the heightened risk of serious injury in these fields. This high level of danger necessitates certain safety precautions by employers. Negligence, such as insufficient training or ineffective supervision, often leads to serious injury or death.
If you have suffered an injury working in these industries, you may be unable to perform essential job duties, everyday activities, or even return to work. It is important to speak with a knowledgeable workplace attorney who can evaluate your individual situation and explain your legal rights.
