Honest Lawyers for North Dakota Victims of Hydraulic Fracturing Injuries
Experienced attorneys advocating for the rights oil field workers
Hydraulic fracturing has proven to be a lucrative development for the economy of North Dakota. It’s introduction into the Bakken Oil Fields has reportedly allowed for an increased recovery of oil, without the necessity for drilling additional oil wells. For workers, this technological development has provided new jobs and a chance to obtain financial stability for their families. Unfortunately, the introduction of hydraulic fracturing has also brought new concerns about employee safety and the high risk for serious injuries. From tanker truck accidents to hazardous material exposure, individuals working within the fracking industry are at risk of harm every day.
At Larson Law Firm P.C., we have spent more than 35 years advocating for workers injured on the job. While recently introduced hydraulic fracturing technology is relatively new, our approach to legal services is more than three decades old. We believe that every client deserves just compensation for their injuries, so our skilled North Dakota hydraulic fracturing lawyers earnestly work to pursue compensation awards from all responsible parties.
The dangers of hydraulic fracturing
Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a process where a mixture of water, sand and chemicals is injected into shale rock formations for the extraction of oil and gas. The creation and maintenance of these operations requires a substantial physical labor force, but these workers routinely face a substantial risk of harm. At Larson Law Firm, our experienced North Dakota fracking lawyers have seen injuries related to a variety of fracking accidents, including;
- Vehicle crashes. These incidents commonly involve trucks carrying fracking materials and extracted oil to and from the sites.
- Well service incidents. Workers may become caught and unable to remove themselves from small, confined workspaces while servicing the fracking wells.
- Explosions and fires. These serious and potentially fatal accidents are common risks throughout the oil field industry.
- Product and equipment accidents. Injuries may result from product defects or improper maintenance of equipment.
- Chemical exposure. This common problem often stems from the chemical processes used to fracture the shale rock.
