Injured at the Bakken Oil Field? We Can Help!

Throughout the Great Recession, there is one area of the United States that has flourished, and that is in the North Central states. One of the primary reasons for this is the Bakken Oil Field, which has been in a state of constant growth. Jobs in the oil industry pay considerably well, not only because of the value of the resource they provide, but because of the tremendous risk that comes with working on oil fields. Injuries are fairly common, and injured workers do not always get what they are due.

The causes of injury on oil rigs are numerous. Most injuries in the industry are caused by transportation accidents, contact with equipment, and fires. All of these are completely preventable with the proper training. People, however, are not perfect, and sometimes things slip through the cracks. The Bakken Oil Field is one of the highest-producing oil fields in the world, and is especially prone to risk. The higher the risk, the greater the necessity for safety training. Oil companies atBakken need to take especially great precautions in both on-site practices and pre-employment orientation. When they do not, injuries happen. Most injuries on oil rigs, when not fatal, make workers unable to work for the rest of their lives, especially in the oil industry.
