Houston Texas Oil Platform Injury Attorney 


Oil platforms are located in a harsh environment, and many workers are injured while working on platforms or while being transported to platforms on boats or helicopters. If you have been injured in an oil platform accident, you are entitled to benefits under the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act. You may also be eligible for what is known as a "third-party" claim if someone other than your employer or a co-worker is responsible for your injury.


Harold Eisenman P.C. , a Houston lawyer with more than 36 years of handling oil platform injury cases on the western Gulf coast. I offer a free consultation and my services to help injured oil workers obtain the full amount of compensation to which they are entitled.

Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation benefits are limited and do not include compensation for damages such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and punitive damages. However, if your injuries were caused by a third party, an experienced attorney can help you collect the full measure of compensation from the negligent party.


Examples of negligent third parties may include:

  • A contractor who is responsible for gangways, steps or other facilities on the oil platform.
  • A manufacturer of equipment used on the oil platform.
  • A company that transports workers to and from an oil platform. (If you were transported on a boat, you may also be entitled to compensation under the Jones Act.)


To preserve your right to full compensation, it's important to consult an experienced 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 attorney.


It's important to consult a lawyer who is experienced in handling maritime cases. If your third-party injury claim is not handled correctly, you could end up waiving any rights to future compensation under the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act. Handling these cases incorrectly could cost you thousands of dollars and forfeiture of future medical care.


Consultations are always free.
Contact personal injury lawyer Harold Eisenman P.C. to discuss your 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.
