Offshore Oil and Gas Injuries

Thornhill Law Firm has successfully litigated claims by injured workers who engage in the offshore oil and gas industry. Movable rigs, semi-submersible rigs, drilling barges, and other floating facilities which are classified as vessels entitle claimants to relief under the Seaman’s Statutes. General maritime law and Jones Act Seaman’s Statutes created by Congress and the Federal Courts often apply to such claims. The United States Constitution gives special protection to maritime claims under the Savings to Suitors Clause of the Constitution. Maintenance and cure payments are assured injured workers under these statutes and cases. A team of lawyers has been assembled to address recent catastrophic offshore explosions, such as that we have heard reported in the news about the Trans Ocean Limited Semi-submersible Rig. The proven trial skills of Tom W. Thornhill have served well claimants who must through the courts obtain relief from responsible persons.
