Offshore Rig Drowning Our Goal: Winning & Winning Big

Offshore Rig Drowning Incidents

Experienced Drowning Lawyer for Victims Nationwide

On offshore oil rigs, the risks are high and the hours long, leading to a number of accidents and fatalities among workers each year. On any given day, oil rig workers are asked to complete hazardous projects and often find themselves in perilous conditions. If a friend or family member has drowned as a result of an offshore oil rig accident or sustained injuries from a near-drowning, a drowning lawyer at The Doan Law Firm, P.C. can help. Attorney Jimmy Doan and his team have extensive experience representing injured victims or surviving family members in wrongful death suits across the United States.

Understanding Oil Rig Worker Rights

Although offshore oil rig workers are a vital part of our economy, they also face inherent dangers in their day-to-day duties. Maritime laws such as the Jones Act offer protection for these workers who may be injured or even killed on the job. Under this act, employers must offer seaman a reasonably safe environment in which to work. Employers must also keep the vessel, in this case, the oil rig, properly maintained and in safe condition. Since the regulations under the Jones Act are strict, one only needs to prove the employer was partly responsible for a worker's injury or death.

Offshore rig workers are also entitled to maintenance and cure under maritime law. Simply put, an employer must provide for the injured worker while he or she recovers regardless of who is responsible for his or her injury. Expenses in the maintenance category can include rent and mortgage payments, food, property taxes, and homeowner's insurance. The cure portion of this maritime law covers medical treatments and expenses. In addition, surviving family members of deceased offshore rig workers may also be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
