  • Can I receive compensation for an oil rig injury?

LaGarde Law Firm has extensive experience in oil rig injury cases. If you suffered an injury while working on an oil rig, onshore or offshore, then you should contact us as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights.

If you are an oilfield worker who was injured on the job, then you may be entitled to compensation from your employer or from another party. Oil rig injuries are often preventable accidents that result from failure to follow safety procedures, from improper maintenance or training, from equipment malfunction or failure or from a variety of other causes. When you consult with LaGarde Law Firm about your case, we will determine whether your injury was the fault of your employer or of another entity, such as an equipment manufacturer. We will take all appropriate legal action, including filing a personal injury lawsuit, to obtain the compensation you deserve.

When deciding on legal counsel to represent you in your oil rig injury case, it is important to choose a firm with extensive experience with this type of law. LaGarde Law Firm regularly represents injured oilfield workers, and we are highly knowledgeable about this type of case. Depending on the circumstances of your injury, it may be covered under the Jones Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act or under another law. Attorneys with LaGarde Law Firm are licensed to practice in both Louisiana and Texas, so we are able to pursue your claim in the venue that is most advantageous to your interests.
