Hurt In An Accident On An Oil Rig?
If you have been hurt while working on an oil rig, it is important to recognize that this is not a standard work accident or personal injury claim. Your case may be governed by the Jones Act or other maritime laws, rather than land-based accident laws. Needless to say, you want to choose an attorney with experience in these types of cases and who understand the applicable body of law. At Johnson & Crew in League City, we have devoted our careers to these cases and have an established record of success in claims like yours.
Experienced Representation In All Oil Platform Injury Cases
We have experience representing drillers, welders, engineers, crane operators, toolpushers, floorhands, catering team members and all other staff on offshore oil rigs. We represent workers who have been injured due to:
- Fires and explosions
- Falling objects
- Falls from scaffolding and other heights
- Equipment accidents
- Chemical and harmful substance exposure
- Repetitive motions
We also represent oil platform workers who were hurt in transit to or from a rig on a crew boat or other form of transportation.
As a law firm dedicated specifically to handling offshore accident claims and representing maritime workers of all kinds, we understand the dangers inherent to oil platform work. When you come to us with a case, you will not need to spend time setting the stage so we understand what happened. You can talk to us about the situation without worrying about whether or not we get it. We do get it, and we are able to take the information you provide, conduct any necessary investigation, work with experts as appropriate, and build a case designed to help you get compensation. If the need arises to take your case to trial, you can be comfortable knowing that we can accurately educate jurors and judges about the details surrounding your work and the oil rig accident.
