Fixed Platform Injuries
Suffering After an Injury or a Fatality on a Fixed Oil Platform?
Maritime law is among the more complex areas within personal injury practice, and our attorneys have decades of experience ranging across many accident and injury types — including those related to work on fixed platforms.
At Doyle Raizner, our clients have benefited substantially from our well-earned, in-depth knowledge of laws enabling injured workers and families left behind to pursue monetary compensation for damages. If you or a loved one was harmed due to negligence causing a fixed platform injury, contact us now to arrange a personal, informative consultation.
Your Case May Depend on Your Attorney’s Knowledge of Complex Statutes
We know from intense study, research and case experience that pursuing monetary compensation for a fixed platform injury typically requires knowledge of laws entirely distinct from the Jones Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and other U.S. statutes. It is important to know that not all personal injury lawyers — including those with a maritime focus — have a firm grasp of these laws and the nuances of fixed platform cases.
Fatalities at Sea — Serious Injury Litigation — U.S. and International Cases
Our maritime injury lawyers can interpret and explain your rights under state laws — which may overlap to some extent with the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act and other federal statutes. We are determined to find the most appropriate approach and strategy for your case involving:
- A wrongful death due to the negligence of a U.S. company operating and maintaining these fixed platforms, which are fixed to the seabed
- Serious injuries ranging from brain and spinal cord damage to career-ending or career-altering back, neck, knee, shoulder, and other injuries
- Burn injuries resulting from offshore oil rig explosions and fires
Our respected law firm is prepared to handle fixed platform injury cases originating in the Gulf of Mexico or in international waters far from our offices in Houston and Galveston. Whether your injury on a fixed platform occurred in the North Sea, the Middle East, or off the coast of Texas or Louisiana, we want to serve you well in your quest for justice and monetary compensation.
