Oilfield/Construction Injury in Alaska

Oilfield Accident Lawyer in Anchorage

I do not handle workers compensation cases. But a manufacturer or other party may be required to pay damages for catastrophic injuries or death in an oilfield or construction accident. The Law Office of Gregory J. Grebe has successfully sued on behalf of employees for third-party negligence.

I have practiced personal injury law in Alaska for over 30 years. Based in Anchorage, I am available to represent construction workers and oil production workers in Cook Inlet, on the North Slope and throughout the region. I have personally flown by helicopter to platforms in the Inlet and visited drill rigs on the North Slope to understand what caused an injury or death. I offer a free consultation to determine if you have a claim beyond workers' compensation. Call 1-800-490-3946.

Oilfields Accident Lawyer in Anchorage

I have represented the interests of oil platform and drilling rig workers in Cook Inlet and pipeline workers on the North Slope in a range of serious and fatal accidents:

  • A man whose hand was chopped off because of disabled guards on a pipe rack
  • A worker who severely injured his back when a winch was started without a proper signal
  • The family of a man who was knocked off a stabbing board while directing pipe, falling to his death
  • The family of a man chewed up by a ditch digger

Anchorage Construction Accident Attorney

I can represent construction tradesmen in all types of work-related catastrophes:

  • Crane, derrick, backhoe and heavy equipment accidents
  • Electric shocks, explosions or fires
  • Welding and compressed gas accidents
  • Falls from ladders, structures or rigging
  • Trench collapses
  • Failure-to-guard injuries from power tools and saws
  • Old, defective or improperly maintained equipment

Under Alaska law, you cannot sue your employer for negligence. But you may have a case against the company that manufactures or services equipment that caused the injury, or for an on-the-job vehicle accident. Most importantly, I know how to evaluate your case. I understand state and federal safety regulations and have access to industry experts who can testify about how a machine failed or show that its design was inherently dangerous.

I do the extra legwork to get my clients the compensation they deserve, knowing that they may never again earn a living in the oilfields or construction trades. Contact my Anchorage office for a free initial consultation at 1-800-490-3946.

NOTE: We do not handle workers' compensation claims only negligence lawsuits against third parties. You are always entitled to workers' comp benefits for a work-related accident. If you need a lawyer, there are several that limit their practice to this area.
