Montana and North Dakota Oil Rig Accidents On The Rise
Throughout Montana and North Dakota, accidents at oilfields are on the rise given the number of people and businesses engaged in the trade. Safety regulations are sometimes followed and sometimes not. Even for drilling companies that strictly follow all safety regulations, incidents leading to injuries and even death are still a reality.
For oil and natural gas businesses, the bottom line is profit. The fact is, if one of their workers gets hurt, that could can mean less money in profits. Compensating an employee for injuries is expensive, and they’d rather find every excuse in the book not to pay.
Instead, companies would rather make their workers pay out of their own pocket for hospital bills, ongoing treatment, and living expenses during their time away from work. Whether it’s a big company, a contractor, or subcontractor, there is simply no excuse if you suffer and the responsible party refuses to pay you.
That is why you must contact an attorney who handles these claims. If you or a family member have gotten hurt due to a Bakken oil accident or any other oilfield injury, don’t think for a minute that you’re proving something by continuing to suffer and not coming forward with a claim.
An incident where someone gets hurt or killed could have been no one’s fault at all. As we all know, working in the oil and natural gas business is a dangerous line of work. Then again, the injuries might be the result of faulty or defective machinery, the use of improper equipment, the failure to follow safety rules, the lack of proper safety equipment, etc.

If your boss did fire you to avoid paying for your injuries, you might even be able to add a wrongful termination claim against the oil company too.
