Offshore Rig Injuries

Houston Texas Offshore Rig Injury Attorney Maritime Lawyer

Offshore work is recognized as dangerous work, and many oil rig workers suffer serious injuries that can result in lost earnings, a long recuperation, and in some cases permanent disability. If you have been injured while working on an offshore rig, you are entitled to full compensation under federal laws known as the Jones Act and General Maritime Law.

Harold Eisenman P.C. , a Houston lawyer with more than 36 years of handling maritime injury cases including injuries that occur on offshore oil rigs. Even though oil rigs and semi-submersible rigs do not move under their own power, they are considered "vessels" under the Jones Act.

The Jones Act offers offshore oil rig workers the full measure of coverage for any injury they suffer, including back injury, neck injury, broken bones, head injury, hand injury, brain injury, and spinal cord injury. Your right to compensation is limited only by the extent of your injury, and may include:

  • Lost wages and earning capacity
  • Loss of physical capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Loss of household services

Most employers treat injured oil rig workers well immediately following an injury. However, this honeymoon period can end after a few weeks or months. Then your employer can cut off your maintenance and cure benefits and put pressure on you to accept a minimal recovery.

To preserve your right to full compensation, it's important to consult an experienced maritime lawyer as soon as possible after you are injured. Sometimes hiring an attorney needs to be confidential for a variety of reasons, which are best explained in a private consultation with an experienced maritime attorney.

Consultations are always free.Contactmaritime lawyer Harold Eisenman, P.C. to discuss your oil rig injury case. All of the work we do is on contingency. This means Mr. Eisenman advances all costs of preparing your case and only charges a fee (a percentage of the recovery) when the case is successfully concluded. If there is no recovery, there is no fee.
