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 Helena, Billings, and 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.
The lawyers of Odegaard Kovacich Snipes have a long history of helping workers who have been seriously injured in oil field accidents.

We have recovered some of the largest verdicts in the history of Montana, and we are confident that we will be able to help you with your case.
We understand that your job is your livelihood, and we make sure that you will be protected throughout your claim. We carefully review your case to learn who was responsible for the injuries that you have suffered. We then take all of the necessary steps to get things moving forward as soon as possible.
