Top-Rated Law Firm Helps Victims of Oil Field Accidents Resulting in Catastrophic Injury

Obtaining justice for injured oil field workers

The Bakken shale oil field in western North Dakota has boosted the state and local economies — and is a major factor in America's battle to limit dependence on foreign oil. At the same time, drilling for oil is a dangerous job, and extracting oil and gas through hydraulic fracturing — "fracking" — may entail more risks beyond those encountered in standard onshore and offshore drilling situations.

At Yaeger & Jungbauer Barristers, PLC, workers who have been in oil field accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries have a place to turn. We are St. Paul/Minneapolis serious injury attorneys who know how to achieve results for those who have been injured, and who understand the Midwestern work ethic. In addition to being named one of the country's top law firms by U.S. News & World Report, we have successfully represented thousands of injured railroad workers and other hard-working men and women who have sustained serious on-the-job injuries. As oil field accident lawyers with a national reach, we work on behalf of gas- and oil-field drillers, roughnecks, and others from Prudhoe Bay to the Gulf's offshore rigs.

Workers compensation may not be enough

As an injured oil field worker, you are probably covered by workers compensation. If you or a family member has suffered a burn injurytraumatic brain injuryspinal cord damage or another catastrophic injury, workers comp may not be sufficient to cover a lifetime of pain and loss of income. If a contractor, supervisor, or other entity's negligence or careless behavior led to your injury, you may be able to file a third-party lawsuit in addition to your workers compensation claim. Even the manufacturer of a defective product, such as a defective bolt, may bear liability. An experienced Yaeger & Jungbauer Barristers, PLC oil field accident attorney leaves no stone unturned in maximizing your recovery for oil field injuries caused by:

  • Natural gas or oil explosion
  • Blowouts
  • Gas leaks
  • Transportation accidents
  • Falling pipes or debris
  • Equipment accidents
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Defective machinery, equipment or components
