Were You Injured in an Oil Field Accident in the Bakken Shale?
The Bakken Shale Formation is a rock unit occupying about 200,000 square miles of the subsurface of the Williston Basin, underlying parts of Montana, North Dakota, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
New extraction technologies have opened up opportunities to drill and produce oil and gas from shale formations around the country. These technologies have opened more jobs in the Bakken Shale formation in the United States and Canada.
Legal Help for Workers On The Bakken Shale - No Fee Unless We Win
But there’s a problem with working on the Bakken Shale.
Oilfield work is one of the most dangerous jobs on earth and work in the Bakken formation is no different. For example, almost all crude oil contains Hydrogen Sulfide gas, and some wells in the Bakken formation have higher concentrations. Also, some contractors have offered workers higher bonuses for drilling fast, pressure that can lead to increased injuries.
Accidents in the petroleum industry can often involve multiple parties and contributing circumstances. It is vital that you have a litigation team with the experience and knowledge in these complexities to handle your case.
Workman’s Compensation is only the beginning of what may be owed to an injured worker. In a complex work environment, liability for compensation may be sought from the company that owns the wells, contractors or manufacturers of defective equipment.
