A worker dies every six weeks in the Bakken Oil Fields, but Brendan Wenger
died in an explosion during his very first day on the job. Paul Odegaard
grew up near the Bakken Oil Fields of the Williston Basin. He merged his
legal practice with Matt Braukmann's practice to form Odegaard Braukmann
Law, PLLC to represent workplace injury accident victims in Montana. Both
Paul and Matt deeply care about their injured clients and do not want
them further harmed by corporations, insurance companies, and finance
companies as they attempt to recuperate.
The Public Broadcasting Service reported on an Occupational Health and
Safety Administration investigation into the dangerous BakkenOil Fields.
OSHA reported that the oil or energy companies are shielded by layers
of contractors whom they hold liable for accidents. With oil prices dropping
and the annual production of barreled oil below expectations, contractors
can not say no to oil producers who show no regard for workers' safety.
Brendan's parents recorded that OSHA did not understand oil well operations.
In Brendan's case, Oasis Energy paid no penalty. Instead, Oasis shifted
the blame onto the contractors. They stated that a sudden unexpected puff
of air in the otherwise safe well was an act of nature.
