With the discovery of the Bakken oil-bearing formation, thousands of workers have migrated to eastern Montana and western North Dakota to work in the oil fields. Although lucrative, working in and around oil rigs and wells is often a high stress, chaotic, productivity-driven work environment. These factors can produce disastrous results in the form of personal injury or death.
On a job site, multiple parties besides your employer may be liable for your injury. These third parties have a duty to keep the workplace safe for oil field workers and should be held accountable for their negligent actions or inactions. If you are injured in a workplace accident, you need a Great Falls oil field accident lawyer who will look out for your claims and explore all options available to get you the compensation you deserve.
