Trusted North Dakota Oil Field Accident Lawyers Fighting for the Rights of Injured Workers
Handling complex oil field accident cases
Various types of accidents contribute to these injuries, including motor vehicle fatalities related to transportation between work sites, pit falls, equipment failures, crane accidents, drilling accidents and countless others. For many workers, the North Dakota oil fields offer a better life for their families. The promises of higher pay are alluring, but the lack of training and experience is believed to be a contributing factor in the shocking numbers of deaths and injuries. That is why the knowledgeable North Dakota oil field injury lawyers of Larson Law Firm P.C. work hard to obtain compensation when these hard-working individuals are harmed.
Trusted representation for various types of oil field accident cases
Our legal team has helped many North Dakota residents with their oil field injury claims, including harms related to the following types of accidents:
- Oil service truck accidents. These specialized vehicles are designed to haul heavy equipment used in the mining industry. An accident with these trucks can cause serious injuries for everyone involved.
- Oil rig collapses. These structures are built to withstand the elements and the pressure of the oil. However, poor design, construction or maintenance can lead to rig collapses. An oil field worker may become pinned under warped metal from the derrick or a broken piece from the rig could strike a worker in the head causing serious brain injuries.
- Oil field explosion or fire. When a spark hits oil, the effect can be instantaneous, leading to a dangerous explosion. An oil fire can be extremely difficult to put out, as the oil from the well continues to feed fuel to the fire. In the meantime, any nearby oil field workers are at risk of serious injury.
- Toxic fumes injuries. Dangerous fumes are common among oil fields, including crystalline silica and other types of fumes. Breathing in these fumes can have lasting impact on your health and wellbeing.
- Oil blowout cases. Built-up pressure from the underground reservoir can force oil and gases up the well with enough force to damage the drilling rig and cause serious injuries to nearby roughnecks, drillers, derrick hands and other workers. Blowouts have also been known to cause fatalities.
