Understanding Oil Rig Injuries & Your Rights
Federal laws, such as the Jones Act, protect maritime workers injured in accidents involving offshore oil rigs. This important law extends protection to sailors and offshore workers who have been hurt on the job. While these federal acts are useful to oil rig victims, they can also be difficult to understand. As such, you need to choose an offshore injury attorney who is experienced in personal injury laws, like the Jones Act, and a team who has a comprehensive knowledge of oil rig injuries & maritime law.
Offshore oil rigs are often the sites of accidents caused by:
- Cathead slips
- Heavy falling objects
- Negligent or insufficient training for equipment operation
- Dangerous grating or pipe tongs
- Falls on slippery surfaces
- Cable breaks
- Exposure to toxic fumes
- Offshore rig explosions
If you’ve been harmed by any of the situations above, do not hesitate to contact our New Orleans oil rig injury lawyers.
