Has someone in your family - a son, a husband, a father - been seriously injured in the work place in the offshore waters of the Gulf Coast area? Offshore accidents are very common in the offshore workplace. When such accidents occur, legal questions arise as to the compensation requirement owed to the injured worker from the company involved, and as to the legal obligations of the company to the worker involved.
At The Dwyer Law Firm, our offshore injury attorneys can assist you in developing an understanding of the various avenues available to ensure that you are compensated for medical costs and suffering. Offshore injuries usually occur because of employer negligence, but whatever the cause, the employer is legally responsible to ensure a safe work environment and to protect its employees against avoidable hazards.
Our years of experience in dealing with offshore accidents have revealed a common cause: certain requirements on the company’s part are not adhered to. Our experience in the area of offshore injuries allows us to identify negligent company actions.
