Oil Rig Injury
Working in an oil rig can be seen as one of the most dangerous and hazardous jobs because of what it involves and the environment it creates. Workers are often exposed to long hours and long periods away from home and loved ones. The tasks being carried out are often complex and there is usually machinery involved. These factors mean that oil rig injuries are more common than some other types of workplace injuries. Our personal injury solicitors** Bradford are able to advise and assist you in pursuing any claim arising from oil rig injuries.

They will be able to give you detailed legal advice as well as provide assistance in making the claim.

Common injuries suffered on an oil rig include those suffered as a result of a slip, a trip or a fall. If somebody else is to blame, you may be entitled to compensation as a result of the oil rig injury. There are certain health and safety regulations that employers must comply with. If these are not met then there is a high likelihood that compensation will be payable. As well as minor accidents, it is the bigger and more severe injuries that make this job so risky. These bigger and more severe injuries generally mean that higher levels of compensation will be available, but as with all types of compensation claims the amount is dependent on the facts of the case. Regardless of the type of oil rig injury, you should contact our personal injury specialists in Bradford who will help you determine whether or not you are entitled to compensation.
