Oil Rig Injury Lawyers

Have you been injured while working on a gas or oil barge, rig, or platform?

Maritime injury benefits under the Jones Act and general maritime law are available to workers on gas and oil barges, rigs, and platforms – including for some injuries sustained on land or aboard the service vessels servicing these work locations.

Oil and gas platform work is extremely dangerous, with many injuries occurring during transfers from service vessels to barges or platforms.

Oil and gas workers who claim maritime injury benefits under the Jones Act may add significantly to the amount of they can recover. Whereas standard workers’ compensation typically pays nothing for pain and suffering, a claim made under the Jones Act has no limit on the amount of pain and suffering damages. What you don’t know about how the law protects you in case of maritime injury can be expensive. You wouldn’t sign a contract with an inexperienced skipper. You wouldn’t want to sign on with an inexperienced maritime injury attorney.
