Houston Offshore Oil Rig Injury Attorney
Texas Drilling Construction Site Lawyer
If you’ve been hurt at work, a Houston offshore oil rig injury attorney can be your new best friend. Working on an oil rig is an extremely difficult, physically-trying, tough job. Between the long hours of manual labor, working with large machinery, and risk of human error, many things can go wrong, and there’s limited time to react — before and after injury. Statistically, about 4.2 percent of all oil and gas workers are hurt while working on site. In Houston, Texas, an oil rig position is very common, meaning offshore rig injuries are more and more frequent as well. Having a lawyer with the appropriate experience is the only way to be covered.
Your Personal Injury Rights
After injury, there is a possibility that your employer may try to convince you that a lawyer is not necessary while handing you numerous amounts of documents to sign. It’s possible that they’re attempting to confuse you into waiving your rights. It’s imperative for you to understand your rights, and make sure that you are compensated for your injuries/suffering. After all, if you’ve been injured as the result of negligence, from a co-worker, boss, or employing company, you deserve your fair reward to cover at least your hospital bills, if not more.
While this may be your first and only oil rig injury, it is likely that your employer has dealt with incidents similar to yours before. Because of this, your oil rig employer may try to legally relieve the company of all responsibility regarding your accident. It’s important for you to seek professional consultation after an injury like this, and before signing any documentation. The faster you have a lawyer on your side, the better- as soon as someone with experience defending cases like yours is behind you, the better your chances are of not being left behind.
