Oil rig accidents are notoriously dangerous and we only have to look at the recent oil rig disasters to see how severe the consequences can be. As a result the amount of compensation that can be claimed by an employee who suffers an injury on an oil rig could be substantial. Compensation claims for oil rig injuries are of course made against employers as they have a duty of care towards the health and safety of their employees which includes providing appropriate training and safety equipment.

Oil rigs are dangerous because of the substances on board the rigs (aside from the oil) and because they are far out at sea which means they are exposed to severe weather conditions and difficult to get to if urgent medical attention is required. There are any number of injuries that can be sustained on oil rigs but the most common are likely to be: burns, inhalation of harmful substances, slips, trips or falls and injuries caused by or through the use of heavy machinery.

Oil Rig/Offshore Accident Claims

The amount of compensation that can be claimed for an injury sustained on an oil rig will depend on the seriousness of the injury and a number of other factors such as recovery time, government guidelines and the amount awarded in previously decided cases (although these will only act as guides as no two cases are the same). Most cases will not go as far as court and the compensation will be negotiated by our personal injury solicitors** in Bristol.

If you have suffered an injury on an oil rig then you are entitled to make a compensation claim against your employer. You should make this claim with the assistance of our personal injury solicitors** in Bristol who will be able to work on your case on a no win no fee* basis. This means that you do not have to worry about expensive legal bills and can focus on recovering and making the claim.

You should note that in addition to the physical injuries you could also make a claim for psychological injuries and any consequential loss such as medical bills, travel expenses and loss of income.
