Offshore Oil Rig Injuries


The 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion that caused the deaths of eleven British Petroleum employees informed the country as to just how dangerous working on an oil rig can be. However, anyone who has ever been employed on an oil rig knows the frequency that less publicized accidents occur.

Often these accidents and injuries occur because of poor work conditions, improper supervision, failure to comply with safety regulations, failure to maintain equipment, et cetera. Very often the owner of the rig or the company that is leasing it is negligent in ensuring the safety of their employees. When injury or death occurs as a result of employer, owner or operator negligence, the parties involved are entitled to compensation for their damages.
