Oil Field Product Liability / Faulty or Inherently Dangerous Equipment

When the margin for worker safety is already narrow, as is the case for anyone working on or around a drilling rig, it is critical that the machinery that they count on is performing as it should (visit our Products Liability page for more information).  When these machines fail, either because of faulty design, inherent danger, poor maintenance, or dangerous retrofitting, the opportunities for serious injuries increase exponentially.  In addition, manufacturers owe a duty to the public and the companies to whom it sells its equipment to ensure that those products have been properly tested prior to their use in the oil fields to safeguard users from coming to serious harm.
