Our firm has been dedicated to representing offshore workers for over 50 years.

Working on an offshore oil rig–whether it is in the Gulf or elsewhere–comes with major risks. As one of the most dangerous jobs, workers on the oil rigs are always at risk for injury. This is why we’ve created this interactive oil rig; to give you an idea of common injuries, where they happen, and why.
