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 Firm, P.C., 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 2015, The AFL-CIO Death on the Job Report stated that North Dakota was the most dangerous state to work in, and 14.9 deaths per 100,000 workers happened as a result of oil field accidents that year alone.
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:
- Well blowouts
- Fires and explosions
- Slip and fall accidents
- Machinery failure due to improper maintenance
- Swinging and falling equipment, such as cables and pipes
- Toxic chemical spills
Legal assistance for injuries related to oil rig accidents
Injuries occurring on an oil rig may be caused by a variety of factors, such as company negligence, equipment malfunction and human error. The most common injuries on oil rigs include:
- Severe burns and lacerations
- Broken bones
- Crushed by heavy equipment
- Soft tissue and muscle damage
- Limb amputation
- Head and traumatic brain injuries
- Hand and foot injuries from machinery incidents
- Spinal and back injuries
- Respiratory and lung issues resulting from exposure to toxic chemicals
Unfortunately, fatalities are also common occurrences on oil rigs. These structures are erected for the purpose of accessing and maintaining an oil well, and they are not always safe for workers.
At Larson Law Firm P.C., our accident attorneys work on your behalf to get you the money you fairly deserve for your injuries. Because of our close proximity to North Dakota’s oil fields, our oil rig accident attorneys work closely with industry professionals to help determine liability in your case. Even if you are an out-of-state resident and only worked temporarily on a North Dakota oil rig, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
