Working on an oil rig is clearly one of the most dangerous environments that you could work in. In addition to the long hours and being away from friends and family for long periods of time, employees are exposed to extreme weather conditions and have to work with dangerous substances and heavy machinery.

Oil Rig Injury Claims Lawyers

If you have suffered an injury following an accident on an oil rig that was not your fault then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation against your employer, who has a duty of care to ensure that you are safe whilst at work. In order to make a claim you should speak with one of our personal injury solicitors** Wakefield who specialise in accidents that happen whilst at work. Our personal injury solicitors** Wakefield will help you to establish liability, estimate your likelihood of success and  negotiate a settlement on your behalf, all of which they will do on a no win no fee* basis which means you do not have to worry about expensive legal bills.

Common injuries following accidents on oil rigs include slips, trips or falls, inhaling harmful substances, burns and accidents caused by misuse of heavy machinery. You can make a claim provided your employer is at least partially to blame because your employer must comply with health and safety regulations and accidents usually flow from these standards not being met. Obviously the more severe the injuries the higher the level of compensation will be. In addition you can also make a claim for any other losses that you have had to bear from medical expenses and travel costs to loss of income.

Regardless of the type of oil rig injury, you should contact one of our personal injury specialists in Wakefield within three years of the date of the accident that resulted in the injury. Any claim brought outside this time period may be blocked by your employer and will require special permission from the court (which will only be granted in very limited circumstances).
