Helping Injured Construction and Oil Field Workers in Alaska

There are few jobs that are as dangerous as those on construction sites and oil fields. The conditions present, with increased pressure to meet strict deadlines with overtime shifts, often result in accidents that leave workers with tragic, and sometimes fatal, injuries. Workers' compensation insurance may not be enough to fully compensate these losses and it is often possible and advisable to bring personal injury claims against third parties to assure the workers' losses are fully compensated. At the Law Offices of Howard J. Meyer, Jr., we handle injuries and wrongful death claims that have resulted from construction and oil field accidents. We have more than 25 years of experience in personal injury law, and we remain dedicated to making sure that your interests, and those of your loved ones, are fully protected. Construction and Oil Field Accidents The system of workers' compensation generally limits the ability to bring lawsuits against employers in cases of oil field and construction accidents. That does mean not, however, that you are always limited to receiving workers' comp benefits. Third parties, including subcontractors, engineers, vendors and manufacturers of equipment, may all be liable if they were at fault for accidents that resulted in serious or fatal injuries. Common accidents on construction sites and oil fields include:

  • Falls from roofs, scaffolding, rigs and other structures
  • Equipment failures and defective products
  • Crane and heavy equipment related accidents
  • Explosions and fires
  • Exposure to dangerous and hazardous chemicals and fumes
  • Electrocution and burn injuries
  • Rig collapses
  • Well blowouts
  • Welding and compressed gas accidents
  • Accidents due to OSHA violations
At the Law Offices of Howard J. Meyer, Jr., we will thoroughly investigate your accident to determine how it was caused and who may be liable for your injuries. We will pursue compensation from every party who is responsible.
