Those who choose to work in the oil fields naturally have a heightened risk of injury. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were a total of 120 fatalities in the oil and gas extraction industry in 2008 alone.
Many of these accidents are preventable, and are due to another person's recklessness at the workplace. In other situations, an employer may have failed to give their employees the necessary training or may have failed to provide adequate equipment and safety securities necessary for your job.
With the help of the lawyers at Odegaard Miller Law, PLLC, you can receive a settlement beyond just workers comp. Because we are extremely familiar with litigating for oil field accidents, we fight for you to receive workers' compensation benefits and compensation from a third party claim.
