Oil Derrick Falls in North Dakota
Individuals who work on oil rigs face some of the most dangerous work environments in the United States. Oil derricks are very tall and often place workers at risk of falling or being struck by falling objects while they are on the ground. Oil derrick falls can result in serious injuries or death if an individual slips and falls while on the job. Slip and fall accidents can occur when a worker falls from high up on the derrick or from tripping on a platform. Oil derrick workers face serious risk of catastrophic injuries; when injuries do occur, our firm's experienced North Dakota big rig and oil rig lawyers can help injured parties pursue compensation.
