We specialize in protecting the rights of offshore workers injured while working on the outer continental shelf. We are dedicated to ensuring that you receive the compensation and support you deserve under complex maritime and offshore laws.

Understanding Continental Shelf Injuries

Working on the outer continental shelf presents unique risks and challenges. Injuries can occur due to equipment failure, hazardous conditions, or accidents.

  • Accidents: From slips and falls to explosions, accidents on oil rigs can be life-threatening. Our legal team is experienced in handling these complex cases.

Legal Protections Under the OCSLA

The Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA) extends federal law protections to workers on the outer continental shelf. This includes compensation for injuries and fatalities, often incorporating provisions from the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). Our attorneys are experts in OCSLA cases, ensuring that you receive the full benefits and protections afforded by the law.

  • Workers’ Compensation: Under the OCSLA, injured workers are entitled to medical care, rehabilitation, and compensation for lost wages. We guide you through the claims process to ensure you receive all entitled benefits.
  • Employer Liability: Employers are responsible for maintaining safe working conditions. We hold negligent employers accountable and seek compensation for your suffering.
