Working offshore on a large ship or oil rig is a dangerous job. Significant injuries can occur even when things seem to be going fine. If you work offshore on a boat or on an oil rig and suffer an injury, Park & Durham is available to assist you. We have represented injured offshore workers under the Jones Act where significant compensation was obtained for these injuries. These laws could apply to you if you were injured on a tanker, a barge, a ship, a fishing boat, or on a massive offshore oil rig. Sometimes catastrophic injuries and death occurs at sea or on an offshore oil rig when there is an explosion or fire. The Jones Act is an important federal law that was designed to protect those who work in these dangerous areas at sea. Park & Durham has the experience and expertise to represent you in this highly specialized area of personal injury trial law to seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and injuries.
