It may seem obvious to you that an injury you sustained onboard an oil rig, or while making your way to one on board a commercial vessel, is the responsibility of the operator or owners, but it is not as clear cut as you think. Though there are very clear maritime laws in place to protect workers harmed due to negligence, there is always the need to prove negligence before any recompense is made to the injured or the family of someone killed in an accident.
These are the reasons that a Baytown oil rig injury attorney is an absolute “must”. It does not matter if you are the worker injured and you are seeking something as basic as lost wages, or you are the family pursuing comprehensive compensation for all of those future wages and even mental anguish due to an accidental death, you need professional assistance. A Baytown oil rig injury attorney is the smartest “first step” in any case you intend to file.
Kirkendall Dwyer LLP is a dependable source for anyone in need of a Baytown oil rig injury attorney because the firm has extensive experience with maritime cases.
Maritime and offshore laws cover every sort of injury, accident, or worker. That means that the cook onboard an oil rig is just as viable for compensation after an accident as the person working on the front lines with heavy machinery. The key is to be able to demonstrate that negligence led to the injury and that the responsible parties must be made to meet their legal obligations.
Kirkendall Dwyer LLP can assist you with all of these things. They can guide you in the right direction and ensure that you approach your claims with realistic expectations and positive outcomes.
