Gulf Coast Offshore Oil Rig Accident Injury Lawyers
Injuries Sustained in Hurricanes | Failure to Properly Anchor a Rig | Failure to Take Adequate Safety Precautions Before or During a Hurricane | Failure to Evacuate in a Timely Manner | Delays in Shutting Down Operations
The last place you want to be when a hurricane comes in off the Gulf is on an offshore oil or gas rig. Unfortunately, unless the owner or operator of the rig comes to get you, you have nowhere to go. In hurricane force winds, the likelihood of injury, or even death, on a platform in the middle of the ocean can be substantial. As a result, many offshore oil and gas rig owners provide additional anchoring for their rigs during hurricane season. Even so, with the tools available to predict the weather, there is simply no excuse for injuries suffered on an offshore oil or gas rig because of a hurricane, other than the negligence or carelessness of the rig owner or operator. If you have been hurt on an offshore rig during a hurricane, let us help you pursue full and fair compensation for all losses.
At Bailey & Galyen, we have more than a quarter century of experience handling personal injury claims, including cases where individuals have suffered injury on an offshore oil or gas rig. We take a no-nonsense approach, carefully investigating the facts and circumstances of your injury, and traveling to the scene of the accident, if necessary. We know from experience that oil and gas rig injury claims can be complicated. We work closely with a range of expert witnesses, from geologists and engineers to medical professionals and financial planners, putting together the most compelling evidence and arguments for your full financial recovery.
