Secure Compensation After A Gulf Coast Oil Platform Injury
It’s no secret that oil platforms are dangerous places to work. If you work on an oil rig platform, your employer is responsible for your safety. If you are injured on the job, you may have options for seeking compensation for your injuries.
At Frischhertz & Impastato, we help injured offshore workers receive the compensation available for them under maritime law. Drawing on decades of experience, we will seek the compensation you deserve for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other needs.
We assist Louisiana workers who have been injured on an oil platform during personnel basket transfers, rig explosions or other accidents. Injuries may result in broken bones, spinal cord injuries and worse.
Most workers who are injured on an oil rig are covered by the federal Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. In addition to workers’ compensation benefits, you may also be able to make claims against vessels, rig owners and others for negligence.
