But the very act of drilling vast hydrocarbon reserves to retrieve oil and gas – under massive pressure and at inhospitable locations – can cause sudden explosions, blowouts, fires and ruptures, all with a risk of injury to the entire on-shift workforce.
Not to mention day-to-day manual handling injuries, machinery accidents, falls and burns.
An injury lawyer’s role in dealing with drill-worker injuries is to piece together all the events that contributed to the event and determine what system-of-work failures were responsible and the fair amount of compensation that the insurer should pay to you and your family.
You have the right to maximise your compensation outcome by choosing an injury lawyer with intricate knowledge of oil and gas drill accidents and the type of injuries that result.
You are entitled to select legal representation from an accident injury law firm with years of experience in platform and drill rig work practices and with those of industries that support and service drill sites.
Our team will – with the aid of safety engineer experts we recruit to the job – thoroughly examine every element of each event so all accident liability issues are fully exposed and all witnesses accounts are comprehensively scrutinised.
Our oil and gas accident injury compensation team extends its services Australia-wide and throughout South-East Asia and the Indo-Pacific region.
Substantial injury compensation can be sought for burns, blunt trauma, crush injuries, dismemberment, chemical injuries and falls.
Damages for expense recovery, lost income, loss of future earnings, paid and unpaid care, pain & suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and other losses relating to your particular circumstances are available to injured employees and contractors.
In cases where workers cannot fully recover due to the serious nature of the injuries, damages are recoverable for lifetime care.
Services cover contested court hearings and the negotiation of out-of-court compensation settlements for all drilling and support industry accidents.
You are entitled to secure the services of a legal team whose knowledge of platform and drill rig work practices gives them – and you – confidence in your case and allows them to charge no upfront costs and only get paid on success.
