Oil Rig Explosion Attorney
Injured in an oil platform fire or explosion? We can help!
For an oil rig worker, an explosion is one of the most dangerous maritime accidents that may occur. Though they may be surrounded by water, oil platforms are high-risk areas for fires and explosions. In rough seas and weather, these rigs seek out and extract oil from deep beneath the ocean floor. Heavy machinery operating off electricity and fuel is used to conduct various aspects of an oil platform's day to day operations. All it takes is a single spark to set a fire that causes widespread damage. An oil rig may even completely sink as a result.

Recovering Benefits for the Victims of an Oil Rig Explosion or Fire
The injuries caused by an oil rig fire or explosion may be severe. A worker may suffer from the following:
- Extensive Burns
- Exposure to Toxic Chemicals
- Hearing Loss
- Brain or Spine Injuries
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
The medical expenses associated with these injuries alone are enough to cause financial difficulties or ruin. An offshore rig worker may be unable to return to his or her previous duties or may be unable to work at all. A maritime injury claim for an oil rig explosion can address all monetary damages and long-term injuries the worker may face, including medical bills, lost earnings, loss of future earnings, and possibly non-economic damages.
