North Dakota Oil Field Injury Case

Meyer, Shaffer & Stepans represented a client who was working on a casing crew when his fingers were amputated during an incident on a drill rig floor.  Due to the inattention of the defendants and failure to use proper safety equipment, our client’s hand was caught between the stump and top drive and four of his fingers were severed. Like many well locations, various companies were involved in the ownership and operations related to this well site. Through research and discovery, we were able to determine which parties were responsible for injuries that occurred on this location and pursue justice for our client. The Firm was able to resolve the case to the client’s satisfaction ahead of trial.
