Working on an oil rig comes with a price. You spend weeks, or even months, away from your family to labor tirelessly, putting your life on the line every day. There's always the possibility of serious injury, or even death. A single human error or the slightest malfunction of a machine can spell disaster.
Violations are a main cause of explosion. Failure to follow state and national laws, not using best practices, continuing to use outdated or malfunctioning equipment, and forcing employees to work long hours can result in an array of accidents.
Once emergency medical treatment has been administered, contacting a personal injury attorney is the next step on the path to obtaining your rightful compensation. Robert Grossman works tirelessly to accurately document and professionally represent your lawsuit to obtain a fair and reasonable settlement.
Oil rig explosions on can cause serious injuries including burns, head trauma, suffocation, broken bones, or death.
While you might be eligible to receive workers compensation from your employer, you may also be able to collect funds for damages from the rig's owners, independent contractors, or any other party who is at fault.
To maximize your settlement, do not agree or sign documents from anyone without consulting an experienced Woodlands personal injury attorney. You need a professional who understands the best ways to handle oil rig injury claims.
