You Have Rights

Oil rigs and platforms are very dangerous working environments. Fortunately, injured workers have many available remedies for compensation. Depending on the facts of your case, you may be eligible for benefits by filing a Jones Act claim or other admiralty law claim.

Jones Act Claims

The Jones Act only applies to seaman. You are likely a seaman if you worked on an oil rig or platform that is a jacked-up, or moveable rig. If so, you are entitled to maintenance and cure benefits, which includes a daily living expense benefit and compensation for necessary medical care, including any necessary hospitalization, medication, surgery, physical therapy, rehabilitation and other care.

You are entitled to maintenance and cure benefits under the Jones Act if your injury was caused by the negligence of your employer or a co-worker. Negligence may be proven in many ways. Our attorneys know how to uncover evidence of negligence in Jones Act claims.

Other Injury Claims For Oil Rig Injuries

If you worked on a fixed oil rig or platform, you may need to pursue compensation through other means, including a personal injury or workers' compensation claim. Our attorneys have experience in such claims, so we can provide the experienced representation you require.

We have helped workers who have sustained a wide range of work injuries, including back and neck injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, loss of limb, brain injuries and other serious injuries. You can rely on us to fight for the full compensation you deserve.
