Experienced North Dakota Lawyers Handling Oil Industry Deaths
Providing compassionate representation for grieving families
Losing a spouse or other close relative has a profound impact on your life. Not only do you miss out on the companionship and relationship you have built, but you may also be left without the financial support you need to move forward and handle daily responsibilities. These are the unfortunate circumstances placed upon far too many families of oil field workers. The dangers of these workplace sites have led to numerous injuries and fatalities.
At Larson Law Firm P.C., we understand that no amount of compensation can ever make up for the life that has been taken from you. However, we also know that a substantial settlement can assist with the financial challenges of your tragic loss. Our experienced North Dakota oil filed death lawyers help you seek justice through a wrongful death action. For more than 35 years, our firm has provided compassionate advice and skilled representation to injured workers throughout North Dakota.
Helping families through the most difficult times in their lives
Wrongful death cases can be difficult to traverse without quality legal representation from knowledgeable North Dakota oil field injury lawyers. The laws of our state only allow certain individuals to institute oil field death claims, including:
- A surviving spouse
- Surviving children
- A surviving parent
- A surviving grandparent
- The personal representative of the decedent’s estate
A surviving spouse has the superior right to file a wrongful death claim. Individuals with lesser priorities can demand that the person with the superior right file the claim. If that person refuses to oblige within 30 days, the party pursue a wrongful death claim of his or her own.
