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.

Louisiana Oil Rig Explosion Attorneys

Working on an offshore rig requires the use of heavy equipment on high seas, often for long work hours. We have been involved with many offshore oil rig accident claims, including those involving:

  • Back injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Falls
  • Wrongful death

Our firm uses its experience and resources to thoroughly investigate each injury claim. We work to determine what happened, who is at fault and what statute covers the accident in question.
