Marathon Oil Accident Attorneys
Helping Marathon Oil Corporation Workers & Contractors
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Marathon Oil Corporation is an international, independent company that runs exploration and production operations for oil and natural gas. The company was originally created in 1887, and from the start, it has been in the oil production business. It operates mainly in the United States as well as off the coast of Equatorial Guinea. As of 2021, the corporation employed roughly 1,500 people, 29% of whom were based in Equatorial Guinea. Marathon Oil Corporation is listed as MRO on the New York Stock Exchange.
Like other industry titans, Marathon Oil Corporation is skilled at protecting its assets and bottom line. Unfortunately, some companies protect their bottom line by cutting corners on safety practices and using unfair litigation practices to keep injured workers from suing or getting the compensation they need to survive.
Offshore Accidents & Fatalities Go Underreported
After the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) was formed, and safety policies were enhanced. Even so, investigations have found these policies deficient to the point that many deaths go unreported—not only a downplaying of offshore accidents and injuries, but a failure to tally and officially report fatalities. This is because according to the parameters for reporting fatalities, nearly 50% of deaths in the Gulf of Mexico between 2005 and 2019 did not meet the official requirements for making it onto a report. Even official government records of fatal offshore accidents are woefully incomplete.
Our Marathon Oil Injury Attorneys Level the Playing Field
Corporations like Marathon Oil have the ability to counter any litigation that comes their way. When workers are injured or their families need to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, companies like Marathon Oil will focus on limiting their liability and prolonging litigation. With billions in revenue, it's not hard for Marathon-sized companies to bloat cases with investigations, filings, and requests, which are delay tactics to try to avoid accountability.
