Oil Rig Accidents
Montana Oil Rig Accident Lawyers
Seeking Justice for Injured Workers in Big Sky Country
Workers from around the United States have migrated to the Baaken Oil Field to take advantage of the oil boom and the high-wage jobs it has produced. Most of these jobs require workers to spend long hours operating oil rigs and other dangerous machinery under extreme conditions. Some companies put profit above safety and ignore labor regulations which can result in accidents and catastrophic injuries to workers.
Oil rig accidents often cause injuries to workers due to the following:
- OSHA violations
- Inadequate safety equipment
- Machinery malfunctions
- Inadequate fall protection
Standing Up for Injured Oil Rig Workers
Under Montana law, oil rig workers are generally barred from filing a personal injury tort lawsuit against their employer, however, they may obtain compensation for their injuries against third parties, such as other contractors, subcontractors or the owner of the well site itself. Oil rig workers may also be able to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of a defective product if it caused their injuries on the oil well site.
