Offshore work can be dangerous for the workers—whether they are roustabouts, drillers, roughnecks, or another type of worker. Still, the danger can be reduced when all of the workers, supervisors, and company management follow safety protocols to the letter.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Oil and gas companies can ignore safety regulations in favor of increasing profits, supervisors and safety officers can be lax in their duties, and equipment can be faulty.
Hundreds of accidents happen offshore every year, many of them resulting in the injury or death of the worker involved. These injuries cost the workers, both physically and financially. As they recover, they’re faced with significant hospital bills and income lost from being unable to work.
If you have been injured in an offshore accident caused by someone else, you deserve justice.
