6 Common Causes of Well Site Injury & Death Situations

Attorney Samuel D. Madia has handled a lot of cases involving serious and fatal injuries at well sites. Initially, Samuel defended oil and gas operators and contractors in these types of lawsuits. In this role, Samuel was typically at the well site the day of the incident, or within days of the incident, in order to collect evidence, interview witnesses, and consult with various experts.

At Shaffer Madia Law, Samuel now represents injured workers as well as the families of workers who were killed at well sites. Samuel uses his experience to hold operators and contractors responsible for his clients’ injuries and deaths. In virtually all the cases that Samuel has worked on involving well sites, the tragic incident that resulted in injuries or fatalities could – and should – have been avoided.

Based upon Samuel’s experience, here are some of the most common causes of incidents at well sites:

  1. “Profit over safety” mentality.
  2. Improper and/or inadequate training.
  3. Equipment malfunctions.
  4. Poor site design and faulty equipment placement at the well site.
  5. Failure to eliminate and/or control ignition sources.
  6. Failure to evaluate for confined spaces.
