Working offshore – such as on an oilrig, freighter, or another sea vessel – can be dangerous. Even under the best conditions, the sea can be unpredictable, and accidents can and do happen.
Injuries that are often suffered in offshore accidents include:
who are employed in an industry that conducts business offshore. Through workers’ comp, you can get medical benefits and wage replacement benefits without the need to prove that you were not liable for your accident and injuries. Employers get the benefit of becoming immune to being held directly liable through a lawsuit, so workers’ compensation is often the first choice if it is available.
However, workers’ comp is not always an option for offshore accident cases. If you were not working when you were injured, or if you were working as an independent contractor who has not been covered by workers’ comp, then a personal injury claim could be your only option.
they do come with the added potential to secure larger compensation – like non-economic damages for pain and suffering – that would not be possible in a workers’ comp case.
