If you work on an offshore oil rig, you can expect hard work and long hours surrounded by heavy equipment and machinery. It is not uncommon to become injured due to job requirements involving bending, lifting or twisting. Slips and falls, traumatic brain injuries, and fire and chemical burns from oil rig explosions are, fortunately, less common, but they can happen. If you become ill or injured while working on an offshore oil rig, you may be entitled to damages.
