Compensation For Injured Oil Rig Workers
Offshore oil extraction is an important industry in our state, putting money in the pockets of thousands of workers. But make no mistake, it is dangerous, difficult work that results in more than its share of serious accidents.
At the Law Offices of Michael J. Schneider, we represent workers who have suffered serious and even fatal accidents, seeking dollar compensation for their losses. We have decades of legal experience and a strong commitment to helping each of our clients obtain compensation for their losses, damages and personal pain and suffering they have endured. We are here to fight for you.
Protecting The Rights Of Injured Seamen For 45-Plus Years
Our clients include engineers, mechanics, maintenance professionals, drillers, crane operators, welders, electricians, floormen and roustabouts. Injuries arise from burns, crushing, explosions, toxic air, falls and falling objects. Causes include blowouts and spills, equipment accidents, lifting and loading accidents, inadequate safety measures, rig collapse and helicopter accidents.
We serve clients who are injured anywhere oil is being drilled offshore – the Chukchi Sea, the Beaufort Sea, Prudhoe Bay, off the North Slope, Cook Inlet and the Arctic Ocean.
The wild west days of oil rigs have largely given way to well-maintained, automated, high-tech sites where safety gets greater consideration. The Jones Act and general maritime law have developed to protect everyone involved. But serious accidents, including fatalities, still occur. When they do, the Law Offices of Michael J. Schneider is there to help you and your family.
