Seeking Compensation For Injured Offshore Oil Workers
The ocean can be a dangerous place, especially for offshore oil workers. If you have suffered injuries while working on or traveling to an offshore oil rig or platform, you can claim compensation for your medical costs and lost wages.

Get The Jones Act Benefits You Deserve
Cases involving offshore drilling rigs present different legal issues than those on fixed offshore production platforms. At Spagnoletti Law Firm, we have extensive experience in both types of cases. Our lawyers understand the nuances of the applicable laws and how to obtain results for injured offshore oil workers.
If your accident occurred on a jack-up drilling rig, for example, you may be able to claim compensation under the Jones Act. This can provide you with significantly greater compensation than you would obtain from the workers’ compensation system. The Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act covers workers injured on fixed oil production platforms. Wherever you were injured, Spagnoletti Law Firm will seek the compensation you are entitled to.
Our firm represents U.S. citizens and foreign maritime workers injured in offshore accidents. We will be your strong advocate, seeking the best possible result for you.
