When a worker is injured offshore, the results may be catastrophic and can include the suffering of a serious or potentially life-threatening injury or even death. Companies employing workers offshore have the responsibility to provide proper equipment and training to protect their employees. When they fail to do so, workers and their families have the right to receive compensation for injuries suffered on the job.
Given the hazardous condition workers must operate in, there are any number of injuries that can happen in the offshore workplace. Maritime injuries occurring in these situations include burns, head injuries, brain damage, back injuries, loss of limbs, exposure to toxic chemicals, and even death.
Offshore injuries can also happen in any number of areas, including the oil platform, drilling rigs, vessels, docks, and other different types of offshore structures.
An employer or their agent may be found negligent if they commit an act allowing a workers or their supervisor to engage in unsafe activities, failing to perform proper maintenance, failing to adhere to industry recognized safety standards, or engaging in any activity in which someone exercising ordinary care would not partake under similar circumstances.
The lawyers at Raizner Slania are dedicated to holding offshore companies responsible for harm to their workers. We have been successful in suits against companies such as Diamond, Schlumberger, Baker Hughes, and Hornbeck. It is the responsibility of these companies to provide safe working conditions and to give their workers the training, protection, and compensation they need. We are not afraid to fight these large corporations or any other party responsible on your behalf. If you or a family member has been injured offshore, give us a call to evaluate your claim.
