Louisiana Offshore Injury Attorneys
Baton Rouge Offshore Lawyers Serving Nationwide
Especially in our Gulf Region, maritime and offshore injuries occur frequently. Whether you or your loved one works on an oil rig or in commercial shipping, the ocean can be a brutal place to work, and these settings unfortunately see similar accidents and catastrophes as those in a refinery or manufacturing plant. Regardless, it is the responsibility of owners and management to provide safe working conditions for their employees. There is no excuse for allowing vessel and rig workers to be injured by unsafe conditions or inadequate policies or training.
However, as many offshore workers know, management tries to get away with using smaller and smaller crews to accomplish the same tasks that usually require a full workforce. This increases the likelihood of a dangerous accident. One, because smaller crews require more work from every worker, the odds of mental and physical exhaustion increase. Two, when individuals are asked to do things that normally require two or three people, they're far more likely to hurt themselves. Our offshore lawyers in Louisiana have seen the results of these practices firsthand. When Gulf Region workers suffer life-changing accidents, they call Arnold & Itkin to help rebuild their lives and protect their family's future.
Arnold & Itkin LLP is there to put to work our industry expertise to winning compensation for offshore employees who unfairly suffered injury or death.
