Gulf of Mexico Company Profiles
We Hold Negligent Oil & Maritime Companies Accountable
The Gulf of Mexico sees a large number of maritime and energy-related companies operating in its waters, companies that conduct shipping, transport, oil drilling, natural gas drilling and production, commercial fishing, and more. With all this hazardous work being done offshore, these oil and energy companies owe a serious duty to their workers to maintain safety standards, provide adequate training, and follow other health and safety regulations. When an offshore worker is hurt or killed, it often means that a corporation was negligent in following protocols and safety precautions.
If you or a loved one has been injured aboard a ship, on an offshore rig, or in any maritime-related occupation in the Gulf of Mexico, you need a lawyer who knows the Gulf and the companies that do business there. At Arnold & Itkin, we have recovered more than $20 billion for our clients and are prepared to see how we may be able to help you.
