North Dakota Oil Rig Accident Lawyer
Injured while working on an oil rig in ND?
Even before the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon, rig workers were said to have one of the most dangerous jobs.
The recent oil boom in North Dakota has called even more individuals to the oil and gas industry. In fact, there are still many rigging jobs that remain unfilled in this northern state. This growth in the economy has also shown an increase in the amount of work-related injuries due to the dangerous nature of the job. Although oil work may be dangerous by nature, many of the accidents that take place in this occupation could have been avoided if the proper care would have been taken by employers and coworkers.

Types of North Dakota Oil Field Accidents
The oil and gas drilling industry is a dangerous one, as many may know. There are countless ways in which a worker can become injured while performing their job duties. The machinery involved in drilling operations is heavy and complex—a double-threat for workers. If this equipment is not properly maintained and handled, then workers are at risk for life-threatening accidents and injuries.
One way that drilling companies transport their gas is by way of truck. If these trucks are involved in collisions then they pose an environmental threat as well as a threat to the safety of individuals—especially since there could be a gas and oil explosion.
Oil rig workers may also become ill due to toxic exposure. If an employer does not provide their employees with the necessary safety equipment while dealing with these toxic chemicals, they may be liable in a personal injury claim. When equipment is not properly and regularly maintained, workers run the risk of becoming injured because of an
equipment malfunction, which is common.
