Working offshore is no easy job. The rigors of working on or near water can make an already difficult job even that much harder. Workers who suffer offshore injuries are often severely hurt and unable to return to work for a substantial amount of time. If you have suffered offshore injuries due to an unsafe work environment, you may be entitled to compensation.
Fishermen, oil rig workers, and other seamen are all covered under maritime accident laws. In addition, there are also other laws which offer protection and the right to seek recovery for injuries, expenses, medical care, and living expenses for offshore injuries experienced as a result of an on the job injury.
