How do I know if I have an oil worker injury claim?
For all injury cases, including oil field injuries, liability must be established. That means the person that caused your injury must have owed you a duty and their breach of that duty caused you damage. This legal concept is often used by corporations or insurance companies to scare people into thinking they do not have a claim. DO NOT BE FOOLED. The duty standard used by North Dakota courts applies to almost every one – including businesses. We all have a duty to act reasonably and if we fail to do so, we are liable for the injuries we cause.
Liability can be established by someone’s negligent, reckless, or intentional behavior. This can be caused by various factors, including:
- Faulty maintenance of machinery that lead to an injury
- Managerial noncompliance with safety regulations
- OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) violations
- Employee lack of training before handling dangerous equipment
Do not be bullied or pressured by the insurances companies into accepting a lower settlement than you deserve or even worse – no settlement at all. Call the North Dakota Oilfield Injury Lawyers today to schedule your free consultation.
What compensation is available to injured oil workers?
There are several forms of damages that are broken into two categories: General Damages and Special Damages. General Damages are things that are more difficult to put an exact number on, like how painful your injury was. Special Damages are those that have an exact dollar amount, such as the exact cost of your medical expenses. Here is a breakdown of the damages you may be entitled to if you have been injured by the wrongdoing of another.
General Damages for Oil Field Injuries

- Emotional Distress
Special Damages for Oil Field Injuries

Can I sue if I was injured while working in an oil field?
Many times yes. Do not be pressured into thinking that workers compensation is your only avenue to recoup compensation for an injury or accident that took place at work. In many cases there may be a liable third party. This means that just because your injury happened while on the job – there may be another person or company liable to pay for damages not covered by workers compensation, like:
