Oil Rig Accidents
The Bakken Oil Field and other areas of North Dakota are well-known for oil drilling rigs, and employ a large number of individuals in this industry. Due to inherent dangers connected to oil drilling, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) has regulations specific to these rigs that assist in preventing serious and fatal injuries. Unfortunately, many companies and their employees fail to comply with these regulations, and when this happens, injuries and wrongful deaths happen. If you or a loved one has been injured or died due to this negligence, you deserve compassionate and competent legal representation to ensure that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled. North Dakota Oil Rig Accident Lawyers have extensive experience in successfully litigating these cases for their clients.
Types of Oil Rig Accident Injuries
Accidents occurring on an oil rig are rarely minor; instead, they almost always involve traumatic injuries, including:
- Chemical burns
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Permanent, partial or total paralysis
- Broken bones
- Loss of limbs
Even if the injured individual survives, they normally cannot return to work for some time, if ever, and, in the meantime their bills are piling up, and their families are left without a way of paying for them or providing adequate support to meet the daily needs for them or their dependents.
We want to strongly emphasize the importance of contacting Traynor Law Firm before you accept a settlement, or payout, of any kind, from an oil field company, or their insurance company. In most of these attempts, it is common for them to coerce you into a much lower settlement than you deserve. You do not have to acquiesce to their demands; you have legal rights that will allow you to receive the compensation that is fair and just for the injuries you received, or for the loss of a loved one in a wrongful death.

- All hospital bills
