Oil Rig Explosions
Baton Rouge Jones Act Injury Compensation Attorneys
If you have been injured on an offshore oil rig, or any other type of offshore accident, you are likely covered under the Jones Act or another federal maritime statute. These statutes provide special protection to offshore workers, including those on offshore oil rig accident claims, who have been hurt on the job and need compensation for medical expenses and lost wages.
At the law firm of Dodson & Hooks, APLC, our lawyers represent workers on offshore oil rights who have been injured, as well as the family members of those workers who have been killed on the job. With decades of experience in admiralty and maritime law, we have recovered significant verdicts and settlements for our clients, and we remain dedicated to success in every new case that we handle.
