The Right to an Offshore Injury Lawyer

is your right to legal representation. The reality is that the laws and
procedures associated with an offshore injury are complex. In fact, not

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.
