Oil Field Accidents

Minot Oil Field Accident Attorneys

Oil field accidents can be devastating. The injuries they cause are often fatal and those who survive may never fully recover. Oil field accidents that injure and kill multiple workers sometimes make headlines, but the accidents that only harm one worker are far more common. There are many inherent dangers in the oil field, and that is why there are also safety regulations. When companies violate those regulations, our Minot oil field accident attorneys are here to help you hold them accountable so that you can collect the full compensation that you deserve.

Types of Oil Field Accidents

Our Minot oil field accident attorneys represent oil field workers who are injured in all types of oil field accidents including:

  • Blowouts and gushers
  • Collapsed rigs and decks
  • Fires and explosions
  • Truck accidents
  • Exposure to toxic fumes
  • Electric shock and electrocution
  • Falls from heights
  • Slip and fall
  • Workers struck by falling objects
  • Defective machinery and equipment accidents

Getting the Compensation You Deserve

You may be eligible for Workers’ Compensation, and if you are you should file a claim as soon as possible. Workers’ Compensation will pay your medical bills and replace up to two-thirds of your lost income. It starts paying quickly and you do not need to prove fault.

But, two-third of your income, for a limited amount of time, is not enough if you have been seriously injured. If you are eligible for Workers’ Compensation you are not allowed to sue your employer, but there may be other avenues of compensation. There are typically multiple companies involved in the oil field and you are still allowed to sue anyone other than your employer who was responsible for your accident.

Through a personal injury lawsuit you may be able to recover full compensation for your injuries including your future medical expenses, full lost wages and future lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and more.

Loved ones of workers who are killed in oil field accidents may be able to recover the full compensation they need through a wrongful death suit.

Our Minot accident attorneys have the experience and dedication to win these challenging cases. We are not afraid to stand up to the oil companies and other powerful opponents so that injury victims like you can get full and fair compensation.
