North Dakota's oil and gas drilling industry has experienced rapid growth in recent years. The success of the Bakken Shale oil and gas fields has been a boon to the state's economy, creating thousands of new jobs and establishing North Dakota as the fourth largest oil producing state in the United States. Unfortunately, drilling for oil and gas is also one of the most dangerous occupations in the nation. Even under the safest conditions, oil and gas drilling can be extraordinarily hazardous for workers. A vast array of safety measures exist to protect oil and gas field workers from falls, malfunctioning heavy equipment, exposure to toxic chemicals, and other potentially hazardous conditions while on the job. However, these safety regulations are not always followed by oil field foremen and the companies that demand faster (and often times fatal) turn around times in getting the rigs up and running. Sadly, the majority of North Dakota oil field accidents occur because drilling companies, who are more concerned with earning a dollar than ensuring the safety of employees, fail to instate and adhere to proper safety protocols.

When gas and oil field workers sustain serious injuries on the job, they may be entitled to more than just workers' compensation benefits. If a third party contractor, engineer, equipment manufacturer, or your own employer's gross negligence or recklessness caused your injuries, you may have a claim in civil court for compensatory and punitive damages. An experienced, aggressive North Dakota oil field accident attorney can investigate your case and identify all responsible parties to ensure you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
