Helping Victims Of Oil Rig Platform Accidents
Working on an offshore oil rig is extremely dangerous. Wet conditions, blowouts, explosions and other potential hazards can all contribute to accidents that can lead to serious injury or even the deaths of platform workers. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in an oil rig platform accident, I am a local lawyer in Houma who can explain your rights and legal options.
The Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA) allows workers to seek compensation for medical care, loss of income and other considerations when they are injured while working on a platform on the Outer Continental Shelf. The OCSLA also includes provisions for surviving family members to receive compensation if a loved one is killed in an oil drilling platform accident.
