Accidents happen. And when the pace of construction is frantic and combines
with a state government encouraging more oil production from the Bakken
Oil field, more accidents happen. As Karen Uhlenhuth
discussed in Midwest Energy News, more than 9000 accidents related to the oil and gas industry were reported
between 2009 and 2013 to North Dakota's Workforce Safety and Insurance
Agency. The story alleges that these
construction accidents had two main causes: 1) companies that exposed workers to high-risk situations
and 2) "a state government that is failing to protect workers in
hazardous occupations and that is beholden, financially, to the industries
it is supposed to regulate."
But, the oil field workers do have options to get compensation if they
are injured while performing their duties. OdegaardBraukmann Law PLLC
is a firm of Montana attorneys with a proven record for providing personalized
attention to each case to get the worker's payment for their injuries.
