Offshore/Oil Rig Injuries Off The Louisiana And Gulf Coast
An Attorney Experienced In Offshore Accident Claims
I am attorney Donald Siegfried. With nearly 25 years of litigation experience, I have handled all types of maritime claims for injured oil rig workers, including:
- Helicopter transport injuries
- Offshore vessel accidents
- Fall injuries
- Serious head injuries from falling equipment
- Fractures, crush injuries
- Basket transfer accidents
- Rig failures
- Crane accidents
- Lifting injuries
- Winch, chain and power tool accidents
If you are a Gulf Coast oil rig worker who has been injured in an accident during transport or while working on or near the rig platform, you are entitled to maintenance and cure benefits under the U.S. Jones Act. When choosing an attorney for an offshore or maritime accident, be sure to select one who is experienced and knowledgeable in this special area of the law.
An Experienced Maritime Law Attorney Can Make A Difference
Call my office at 620-429-0476 or contact me by email to arrange a free consultation to discuss your case with an experienced Louisiana oil rig injury attorney. From offices in Alexandria, I represent clients in Admiralty Law cases throughout Louisiana and other states along the U.S. Gulf Coast. I handle all maritime litigation cases on a contingency fee basis. You will pay NO attorneys' fees unless I help you recover monetary damages.
Throughout your case, I will be available and responsive to your calls and questions. As a solo attorney, I offer the advantage of being able to work directly with my clients.
Do You Qualify Under The Jones Act?
Rules for determining which types of workplace accidents qualify for maintenance and cure under the Jones Act can be confusing. In general, if you are an oil rig worker, your burden of proof for a claim will be somewhat less than if you worked onshore. Depending upon your employment circumstances, you may qualify for your state's workers' compensation benefits or be eligible to sue the negligent party under Louisiana's tort law
. Some injured workers assigned to rigs far out in the Gulf qualify for benefits under the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA). I am ready to answer all of your questions to help you recover the full monetary damages you and your family are entitled to for your injury.
