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.
