Knowledgeable North Dakota Oil Rig Accident Attorneys Seek the Compensation You Deserve

Holding negligent parties accountable for your pain and suffering

The oil industry gives a huge boost to the economy of North Dakota, particularly through the Bakken oil fields. North Dakota has the second largest oil reserve in the United States, and along with Texas, our state accounts for half of the crude oil production in the country. Workers flock to the Bakken region because of its rich oil deposits, which equates to a steady income for employees and their families. But this huge oil boom has also brought about increased accidents, injuries and fatalities.

At Larson Law, our experienced North Dakota oil rig accident attorneys thoroughly understand how the oil industry operates, especially since the oil boom is right in our backyard. We also understand that large oil companies often avoid accountability for employee injuries and fatalities. With our extensive legal background representing oil rig accident cases, we are committed to getting you full and fair compensation for your injuries.

Quality representation for oil field workers

Oil drilling is extremely dangerous and risky work. In 2022, work deaths increased in North Dakota: about 9.8 out of every 100,000 workers died that year, making our state the second deadliest in the country. About a quarter of those deaths were related to “mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction,” though this number excludes transport accidents or downstream fatalities.

Even with reasonable and necessary safety precautions in place, accidents on an oil rig can unexpectedly happen and cause disastrous results. Our skilled North Dakota oil field injury lawyers have seen the long-term effects of these injuries, including those related to:
