If you are a worker on an offshore drilling rig who has suffered an injury, you may be able to pursue a claim under the Jones Act for benefits such as medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, and disability. With so much at stake, it is crucial to have an experienced law firm in your corner.

It is not in the interest of your employer to make sure you understand their rights, because you have much to gain and they have much to lose. That is why it is so important to have an attorney looking out for you. One of the common misconceptions is that oilrig workers are not covered under the Jones Act. This is almost always false; the Jones Act applies to jack-up rigs, floating rigs and any other rig that can be towed through the water. Even if a rig has not been moved in 50 years, it still qualifies if it could conceivably be moved.
Our firm represents oil and gas workers who have been injured in accidents related to extraction, as well as other incidents that occur on rigs such as slip-and-fall accidents, fires and explosions. We will settle for nothing less than the full compensation our clients need to recover from injuries such as head injuries, back injuries, burn injuries, shoulder injuries and repetitive stress injuries.
Due to the complexity of these cases, it is important to seek us out as soon as possible. Contact us today to arrange your free, confidential consultation.
