North Dakota, Minnesota & Montana Oil Field Accident Attorneys
In North Dakota and Montana, energy extraction is a booming industry, and individuals are coming to work in the energy sector in record numbers. Unfortunately, oilfield accidents are abundant and often result in serious personal injuries. Potential hazards include exposure to hazardous chemicals, toxic substances or explosions, being involved in a motor vehicle or truck collision, or bodily injury caused by defective industrial equipment.
Oilfield Injury Compensation Recovery
Although you may have been working at the time of the accident and may now be receiving workers’ compensation benefits, this may not be your only source of recovery. If you are injured by a company/contractor who is not your employer or an individual who is not a coworker or employer, you may be entitled to additional sources of recovery.
If your injury occurred while you were working, at the very least you should file a claim with Workforce Safety & Insurance. You should also contact Maring Williams Law Office to discuss your injuries and to determine whether there are additional sources of recovery to which you are entitled.
