Discover how Arnold & Itkin fights corporate cover-ups after oil rig explosions and secures justice for injured offshore workers. Watch now to learn about our record-setting success.
Advocating for Oil Rig Workers
After an explosion, while the injured is getting taken to the company doctor, the lawyers, investigators, and risk managers show up on site and start taking statements. The companies are trying to protect themselves and shape the message so that it’s not their fault—it’s the injured person’s fault.
When someone gets hurt while working offshore, the companies immediately go into coverup mode. It’s not the men and women you work with offshore. Those aren’t the people who are making the decisions. The people making the decisions after you get hurt offshore are claims handlers or risk management or insurance companies and their crisis response lawyers. What they want to do—what’s part of their playbook—is to start building an evidence trail that whatever happened isn’t the company’s fault. They’re going to blame the worker.
We have experience dealing with high-profile, high-stakes cases. The higher the stakes, the dirtier the companies get to try and protect themselves. You need to have somebody who’s been fighting these companies—not letting them take advantage of their people and ensuring their families are taken care of for life.
Since Kurt and I founded the firm, we have always been committed to continually setting the bar higher. That’s part of the reason that we’ve been able to have this track record of unbelievable success. Of record-setting results.
We’ve recovered billions upon billions of dollars.
They talk about our firm—when we go to mediation, when we go to court—defense lawyers say, “They get the AI premium.” Let me tell you what that means: Arnold & Itkin cases get paid more than anybody else.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed while working offshore, you can’t afford to hire a mediocre lawyer. You need the best lawyer.
No matter what.
