Offshore Oil Worker Injuries Attorney in California

Representing Oil and Gas Workers and Their Families Around the World

Offshore oil platforms are located in dangerous environments where serious injury and death can occur in many ways: from accidents occurring on boats or helicopters while being transported to the platform, diving injuries, equipment used on the platform, and gas fires and explosions. At Banning LLP, our lawyers represent injured clients, as well as the family members of offshore and land-based oil and gas workers who die in fatal accidents.

Our attorneys represent injured oil workers, rig service workers and refinery workers whether they are injured on land or off shore. Our international law practice represents individuals of all nationalities. From our office in Rancho Santa Fe, California, our lawyers help oil workers who are injured in the Gulf of Mexico, the Pacific West Coast, and Alaska and other offshore oil rig platforms around the world.

Protecting Your Rights

The laws that apply to those injured or killed at sea are different from those that apply on land. For example, if you are injured while being transported to an offshore oil platform or while on a movable platform, you are not covered by state law. Instead, your injuries are covered by maritime law. Under maritime law, you may have claims under the Jones Act or the General Maritime Law. Under either the Jones Act or the General Maritime Law, you will need to prove liability against your employer, a third party or the vessel itself in order to receive compensation.

Our lawyers have a depth of experience in the Jones Act, the General Maritime Law, the Death on the High Seas Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, and other U.S. maritime and admiralty laws that apply to oil and gas workers. We also have a track record of success in representing oil and gas workers who are injured on land.

Contingency Fee Representation: We represent oil and gas workers on a contingency fee basis, advancing all costs needed to prove your case. If we are unable to obtain compensation for you, you will owe no fees or costs.
