If you have been injured while working at sea on an oil rig, oil drilling ship, semi-submersible, crew boat, or oil supply ship, you may have a claim for money damages under Federal Maritime law. The Jones Act and general maritime law create rights for damages against your employer which includes coverage for all medical expenses.
When you are injured because of the negligence of an employer, you may be entitled for compensation for lost past and future wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, future medical expenses, and costs of retraining. Because of the extreme physical requirements placed on offshore workers, injuries that result in a worker unable to complete any of their duties may make them unfit for work. There are few if any light duty jobs for workers on an oil rig, oil supply ship or crew boat.
In most instances, jack up rigs, floating oil rigs, and lay barges that move from location to location are vessels in navigation and create rights under the Jones Act for workers injured while working aboard these structures. In most cases, the Jones Act provides more liberal damages than damages available to workers on fixed production platforms who are limited by compensation under the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act.
To learn if you do indeed have a personal injury case the first step is to get in touch with an injury lawyer. In general, you and your injury attorney will have to prove three things in order to recover in a personal injury case: that you suffered damages, that the defendant was negligent, and that the defendant’s negligence caused your damages. Even if you have a valid claim, though, your injury attorney will have to investigate whether or not you would be able to collect on your claim. If the other party does not have insurance or other assets, then it may be that you have a valid claim but will not be able to collect on it.

The monetary value of your injury claim depends on any number of issues. For instance, a case’s value is influenced by the nature and extent of your injuries; the amount of your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other financial losses; pain and suffering; and present and future disability. However, even taking those conditions into consideration there are significant differences in the amount of money a plaintiff can expect to actually collect. This is based on the amount of coverage offered by an insurance company, or the assets of the defendant. Other factors influencing collection including any partial fault on the part of the injured person, the amount of time the victim(s) choose(s) to spend with litigation versus a quick settlement. There is no way for any injury attorney to accurately predict the value of any personal injury case. However, an experienced injury lawyer should be able to consider the particular factors that weigh into your case and give you an overall picture of what to expect in general terms.
The primary goal of most insurance companies is to protect their bottom line- not your particular interests. The lifeblood of any insurance company is to take in as many premiums as they can while paying out as few claims as they can. Many insurance company employees are trained to minimize or deny your claim as quickly as possible. Representatives from insurance companies use a variety of tools to do this sometimes even pretending to be on your side and want to help you get your claim resolved quickly. A good personal injury lawyer will negotiate with the insurance companies as your representative and either work with-or against-them depending on what your claim needs.
