Many hard-working people from all over the country are drawn to work in North Dakota’s oil fields by the promise of good pay. For this reason, they submit to long hours and often dangerous working conditions. They know that if they do not, there are others who will readily take their place.
Some accidents are unavoidable. However, many others are the result of carelessness and haste. When negligence results in serious injury or death, the injured worker or his family may be entitled to compensation. This often includes damages above and beyond any worker’s compensation payments available. At Conlin Law Firm, we help oil field injury victims, no matter where they currently reside, with their North Dakota injury claims.
Many people travel hundreds of miles from home or family for the financial opportunities that working in the oil fields offer. When injured, they must return home, having often lost the ability to support their family, and having incurred burdensome medical expenses. At Conlin Law Firm, we want to work with clients to allow them to concentrate on their physical and emotional recovery. Our goal is to help them, as far as possible, return to life as they used to know it. People who are willing to do the grueling work required in oil fields are not looking to get rich quick from a lawsuit. However, they do deserve fair compensation to pay for their medical treatment and to support their family while they're unable to.
Because many North Dakota oil field accident victims return to homes out of state after their injuries, it is often especially difficult for them to seek recovery. In addition, they are faced with the challenge of seeking compensation from corporations protected by insurance companies and attorneys with experience defending against injury claims. Under these circumstances, it is terribly difficult to secure a fair settlement without experienced and savvy representation to help level the playing field.
In the area of personal injury law, it costs no more to hire a good lawyer than an unskilled one, and the right attorney can make a world of difference. Conlin Law Firm has over thirty years of experience helping victims of serious personal injuries, including those injured in oil field accidents. The firm has a solid record of success on behalf of oil field accident victims.
Conlin Law Firm is focused on the big picture--helping our clients reclaim their lives--as well as on the details of the case. Our initial consultations are used to gather information that will help us to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each case, but also to hear and respond to client concerns. We are thorough in our analyses and straightforward with potential clients. If we don't believe it's in someone's best interest for us to open a file, we'll explain why and help the accident victim explore other options.
Conlin Law Firm has developed a protocol for addressing oil field accident cases. When we find a case is worth pursuing, we begin a process of in-depth investigation, including consulting experts, interviewing witnesses, reviewing medical records, and gathering other evidence. We know it's important to our clients to get answers, so we keep them informed of their cases' progress and welcome their calls and questions.
Conlin Law Firm deliberately maintains a low volume of cases so all members of the team can be actively involved with each case and client. Though we understand not every case will go to trial, we prepare each case as if trial is certain; we know our clients get the best outcomes, whether in settlement or in a courtroom, when cases are meticulously prepared.
We encourage North Dakota Oil Field accident victims who are wondering if they have a legal case to contact us as soon as possible. A consultation with Conlin Law Firm will resolve worries and answer questions. In addition, the earlier a case is brought to us, the better our opportunity to locate witnesses and preserve evidence that might otherwise be lost to delay.
