Have you been injured while working on an offshore oil rig, only to find that the insurance company wants to offer you a settlement? Before you agree to anything or sign any paperwork that may give away your rights to take the matter to court or to receive added compensation, contact a Baytown oil rig injury attorney at Kirkendall Dwyer LLP. An experienced maritime attorney will be familiar with the Jones Act and will know all of your rights as well as to what damages you may be entitled.
The thing with insurance companies is this- they want to pay as little as possible. It’s simple math. The less they pay you, the more money they make. This means that even though the numbers in that initial offer might sound good, they are probably far less than you are entitled to. Without a Baytown oil rig injury attorney on your side, the insurance company is likely to see you as underrepresented and unable to fight for your full entitlement. With Jones Act claims, this can include past and future pain, suffering, lost wages, mental anguish, disfigurement, fringe benefits, and more.
By choosing to work with an experienced Baytown oil rig injury attorney, you gain the support of someone who understands maritime law and the Jones Act who is willing to fight on your side. Negotiating with an insurance company can be notoriously difficult, especially when dealing with an area of law that has so many nuances. Don’t try to go it alone, not when we can help. We don’t charge our clients up front, so you don’t have to worry about trying to come up with legal fees. We don’t collect money until you do.
