The oil industry is deeply rooted and an important part of Brownsville’s local economy. Many locals work in the industry and on oil rigs as part of the nation’s energy industry. Despite every safety standard and precaution, there is still an element of danger in working on an oil rig in the Gulf. Oil companies have a duty to always keep workers safe. While the track record is generally good, because of the nature of the work, danger does still exist, and can be made worse when safety standards are not followed as they should be.
Have You Been Injured in an Oil Rig Accident?
When you are injured in an accident on an oil rig, you are covered by workers’ compensation insurance, and you will at least be partially covered while you recover from your injuries. However, depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to a lot more in the way of recovery.
You will need the help of an experienced oil rig accident attorney to help you determine if you were the victim of a substandard work environment or if your employer did not take every precaution to protect your health. Sorting through these issues can be a highly complicated process, but necessary to make sure you get what you are entitled to receive for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. If your injuries are permanent, the stakes will be raised considerably, meaning you must make sure you have an aggressive attorney who will fight for every dollar you should receive.
