Oil Rig Explosion and Oil Rig Fire Lawyer | Maritime Attorney

Alex R. Hernandez Jr. PLLC Can Help You

Call Now 1-888-HDZ LAW-8

Explosions in oil rigs are a reality that maritime workers have to contend with. Often, these explosions are avoidable and are caused by negligence or human error. Alex R. Hernandez Jr.  PLLC are committed to helping injured oil rig workers get their rightful compensation. The injuries suffered in such explosions are serious, and sometimes fatal. The latter scenario can lead to wrongful death lawsuits.

Explosions at oil rigs can lead to debilitating and painful injuries that can completely destroy or severely curtail your ability to stay employed and provide for your family. It is the duty of your employer to compensate you for your loss and we make it our duty to ensure that he does.  Our attorneys know what it takes to prove employer negligence. Rig owners may try to alter the scene of the accident and even pressurize you to accept the compensation they are offering. Do not agree to anything till you have spoken to a lawyer. We know more about such situations than you do, and we have your interests at heart.

Along with inherent risks of working at sea, oil rig and platform workers also work closely with potentially volatile substances. Oil rig fires and explosions frequently make national headlines, and these catastrophic accidents are usually preventable. The oil and gas industry must do more to ensure the safety of their employees. Far too many have suffered serious injuries and too many families have been forced to grieve after losing a loved one in an accident caused by negligence.

Forms of negligence which commonly lead to oil rig accidents include:

  • Failing to use proper safety measures
  • Inadequate maintenance routines
  • Failing to replace defective or worn parts

If you or a loved one suffered a serious or fatal injury on an offshore oil rig, you likely have grounds for a Jones Act claim,

We can help you with those claims.
