If you have been injured at work, the site owner, general contractor or a subcontractor may be liable for your injuries and damages. We routinely work with the industry leaders from regulatory agencies like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and top industrial safety experts to determine who is responsible for workplace accidents. Workplace accidents in North Dakota have increased with the boom in the Bakken oilfield recently. North Dakota is now the No. 5 most dangerous state in the nation for workers.
We are available to consult with you if you think you may have a case, or a claim, based on a work-related accident or injury from North Dakota, or if you are concerned about the worker safety in the Bakken oilfield. With the increased drilling and work activity in and around the Bakken field, we are available to represent injured workers, injured subcontractors, vendors, or to talk with you about your rights.
The Spence Law Firm, LLC has the experience and expertise to fight for injured workers and to hold responsible parties accountable, no matter how big and powerful the defendant. We have been prosecuting industrial accident cases for decades, from coast to coast, and we work regularly in the West in North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Montana, Utah, and Idaho. With every case, we strive to defend workers’ rights and to promote permanent and positive change in the workplace.
We have obtained substantial verdicts and settlements for the following clients:
*a $5.35 Million settlement for a widow and surviving teenage daughters of a man who sustained fatal injuries and burns over 92% of his body when the man was inspecting a boiler tank at a power plant in Ohio;
*the family of a 38-year old man who was working in a crane bucket that contacted overhead power lines, electrocuting the worker and killing him;
*a man who was severely burned at a gas plant because the hot-zone work area where he was cleaning with a vacuum truck was not properly locked-out and tagged-out. Gas from the plant was released through the line, into the tank where he was working, causing a flash-fire explosion.
