Over 40 Years Of Experience With Oil Rig Injury Cases
Offshore oil drilling is a dangerous occupation — many risks are known to offshore oil workers when they leave land and venture out to sea. However, company cost-cutting and overlooked safety regulations present dangers that result in the serious injury or death of many oil employees each year.
At Vincent J. DeSalvo, Attorney at Law, we represent oil rig injury clients in Houma, Baton Rouge and throughout the Gulf Coast. You know the dangers that come with your job. That does not mean that you do not have rights.
Maritime Injuries And The Jones Act — Knowledgeable Representation During Complex Cases
We have significant experience handling complicated maritime injury cases and will work hard to obtain maximum compensation on your behalf.
Maritime injuries are governed by the Jones Act, which entitles employees to bring legal action against their employer rather than seeking benefits through Louisiana’s workers’ compensation system. To be successful, you must prove that your employer was negligent.
This could include failing to enforce safety guidelines, giving improper instructions, negligently maintaining machinery or contributing to an unsafe workplace. We will work hard to prove your claim and hold your employer accountable for your injuries.
