Both the state of Texas and the federal government have specific rules that include minimum pipeline safety regulations for oil and gas pipeline operators and workers. It is the responsibility of the pipeline company to implement and enforce adequate safety programs that protect both workers and the general public.
Any worthwhile safety plan should include guidelines for preventing catastrophic events and action plans for responding to them when they occur. In addition, every pipeline worker should receive specialized training that addresses his or her responsibilities for prevention of and response to catastrophic events.
In cases where a company’s inadequate safety practices and training contribute to the cause or severity of a pipeline accident, injury victims likely have grounds to seek compensation. Proving the shortcomings of a company’s safety program is very difficult to accomplish. If you or a loved one has been injured in any type of oil or gas pipeline accident, you should have your case reviewed by a qualified Dallas-Fort Worth lawyer.
