The Dangers of Offshore Drilling Rigs
Offshore drilling accidents are covered by a different set of laws than those of land-based oilrig accidents. When facing an injury as an offshore rig worker or in any other maritime profession, it is important to consult with an attorney who understands the Jones Act, the Death on the High Seas Act and other maritime law statutes.
We handle a wide range of offshore drilling accident cases, including those involving injuries on:
- Jackup drilling rigs
- Fixed platforms
- Semi submersibles
- Floating drilling rigs
- Drilling ships
- Deep water rigs
Offshore Oilrigs and Helicopter Accidents
Another danger associated with offshore drilling rigs is transportation to and from the drilling platforms. Many oil companies use helicopters to get workers on the oilrigs, and many of those workers have been injured in helicopter accidents. Injuries suffered from helicopter accidents are typically severe, and all too often, fatal. If you or a loved one has been injured in a helicopter accident or any other offshore drilling rig accident, our attorneys are here to protect your rights.
