Common work injuries can happen on oil fields

Oil field workers face certain risks every day at work. When you consider the ways you could suffer an injury in your place of work, you may be thinking about major accidents, fires and other significant events. However, these are not the only ways that you could end up hurt as a result of your job duties.

Some of the most common work injuries are not the result of major catastrophic events, but instead, they often relate to common workplace hazards and minor issues. No matter the nature of your work accident or job-related injuries, you have the right to seek support. Through your Texas employer's insurance or other type of coverage, you may be able to get the medical care and help you need for a full recovery.

What risk factors are you facing?

Even the most basic tasks on a oil field can come with certain risks. For example, one of the most common work injuries is overexertion. These are injuries and conditions that develop as a result of doing the same tasks repeatedly. This means that someone who sits at a desk and types could suffer harm from these injuries, as could someone who lifts heavy objects all day long.

Another common injury that could happen on an oil field are falls. Whether it's slipping on the wet floor in the office or falling off a ladder, falls from any height can result in painful injuries and the need for medical care. Another risk factor to consider is the possibility of being struck by a falling or moving object. This risk is present on an oil field for many different types of workers.

What can you do next? 

If you suffered injuries in an accident at your place of work, you could have a rightful claim to benefits. However, this is not always an easy process, and the insurance company probably does not have your best interests in mind. It may be helpful to work with a legal ally from the initial stages of your claim in order to lower the chance of complications.

An assessment of your case can be a good place to start if you are hurt and unsure of where to begin. This can help you understand whether you have a claim and what steps you need to take next. You do not have to suffer through the aftermath of your oil field accident alone.
