What Are My Rights as an Injured Worker?

As an injured offshore worker, you have the right to an attorney; you have the right to get your medical benefits taken care of; you have the right to not talk to someone. After an accident or injury occurs, many companies start gathering evidence, and they are not always gathering evidence that demonstrates how things really happened. They are certainly not gathering it in a way that is favorable to the injured worker. The best thing you can do is to get your own doctor, not one selected by the company.

You should also get in touch with a lawyer right away to make sure that your rights are being protected.

When someone is hurt in this dangerous environment they need to ensure that they have taken every step possible to protect themselves. I can assure you from past experience that when someone is hurt offshore, there is typically a lawyer, an investigator of the company, on spot prior to that person reaching the hospital.

So pick up the phone, call us, and learn what you need to do to ensure that you protect yourself.
