Workers’ Compensation Claims
Workers’ compensation is a system set up to make sure injured workers get the compensation they need to recover from their injuries and their time away from the job.
However, employers often argue over the benefits you should be entitled to. An experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer can fight for your rights under the workers’ compensation system.
Jones Act Eligibility
In cases where the drilling platform was floating and not a fixed structure, you may be eligible to bring a claim against your employer and the rig operator for your injuries under the Jones Act, which protects American workers injured at sea.
Third Party Injury Cases
You may also be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for your injuries, depending on the specific circumstances surrounding your injury.
With decades of experience representing injured victims, our attorneys have the knowledge and skill to fight for your rights when you have been injured on an oil rig.
