Third Party Claims for Damages in Oil Field Accidents
Oil and gas drilling is dangerous and fast paced with long hours working on or near large, complex machinery, often in adverse conditions. If you are injured on the job as an oil field worker in North Dakota, you are not necessarily limited to workers’ compensation.
Typically, there are many contractors at an oil or gas drilling site. Generally, you cannot sue your own employer, but if the negligence or intentional acts of someone else or another company caused the accident, you may have a claim against them for additional damages to cover your losses. At Larson Law Firm P.C., we can help determine whether you have a viable case.
