Foreign Waters Our Attorneys Fight for Maritime Workers

U.S. Maritime Workers in Foreign Waters

Serving Workers Nationwide from Offices in Houston, Texas & Baton Rouge, Louisiana

After the oil spill that devastated the Gulf of Mexico, an official moratorium was declared. Although deepwater drilling has reached a standstill domestically, this does not mean that this applies worldwide; in fact, many areas still allow this type of exploration, including Great Britain and several African countries. To take advantage of these foreign opportunities, it's been reported that there have been at least three oil rigs that have left the Gulf, taking with them many domestic maritime workers who are looking to keep a paycheck.

However, regardless of where an offshore worker is employed, no matter whether it's in Angola, Brazil, Nigeria, or the Persian Gulf, it is important to keep in mind that the nature of maritime work is dangerous. Location doesn't change that and, in fact, can aggravate that danger.

For instance, around the North Sea, the conditions are notorious for being fatally dangerous and often the cause of offshore accidents. So much in fact that according to a report released by the British Health and Safety Executive's Office, the area around the North Sea saw a nearly doubling in major injuries and wrongful deaths in 2009. Many of these incidents were associated with the area's lack of focus on the safety of the workers.
