The Right to Independent Medical Care

Time and again, in the aftermath of an offshore accident, a worker's employer or an insurance company will pressure an injured individual to see a particular physician. You have the right to seek independent medical care from a physician of your choice. An offshore injury lawyer from our firm can assist you to make sure this important right is protected.

As an aside, you also have the right to seek an independent evaluation of your injuries. An employer and an insurance company has the ability to have you evaluated by a physician of their choosing. However, you also have the right to obtain your own evaluation from a qualified physician.

The Right to Have Your Medical Bills and Expenses Paid

If your situation is similar to most other people who have suffered offshore injuries as the result of an accident caused by the negligence of some other party, your medical bills and expenses are mounting. You may face ongoing medical treatment for an extended period of time.

You have the right to have your medical bills and expenses covered. The protection of this important right represents another area in which an experienced, committed offshore injury attorney from our firm provides invaluable professional assistance to someone in your position.

The Right Not to Talk

Many employers, not to mention insurance companies, will pressure you to give a statement regarding the accident and your injuries. In the grand scheme of things, pressuring you to make a statement before you obtain legal representation is only designed to trip you up and have you say things you really do not mean. Employers and insurance companies literally attempt to trap you in making statements against your own interests.

You have the right to say "no" when requested to make a statement, until you have the opportunity to consult with legal counsel. Odds are that your employer, or an insurance company, will immediately be at your door seeking a statement from you. This illustrates the necessity of seeking legal assistance directly after an accident.

The Right to Recover from Your Injuries

Another tactic used by offshore rig employers, and associated insurance companies, is to press you to return to work prematurely. An offshore injury lawyer from our firm will make sure that you are no improperly pressured to return to work until you have fully recovered from your injuries, and received a doctor's "OK" to go back.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
