Offshore Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers

Representing Texas Offshore Workers After a Slip or Fall

Slip and fall accidents may seem like minor incidents, but on an offshore rig, they can have life-altering consequences. At Jolly Roger Law, we understand the unique dangers faced by offshore workers in Texas. If you've been injured in a slip and fall accident, our experienced team is here to fight for the compensation you deserve.

How Slip & Fall Accidents Occur Offshore

Unlike a slip and fall on solid ground, offshore slip and fall accidents can happen due to a combination of factors and unforgiving conditions. Offshore environments present numerous slip and fall hazards.

Slick Decks

Oil spills, leaks, or even leftover ocean water can create slippery surfaces, especially on walkways and work areas. Improper cleaning and maintenance can significantly increase the risk of a slip and fall accident.

Tripping Over Equipment

Crowded work areas with cluttered walkways, unsecured hoses, pipes, or loose cargo containers can cause workers to trip and fall. Inadequate lighting or poorly marked obstructions further increase the risk of accidents.

Over-Strenuous Lifting Tasks

Offshore jobs often involve lifting heavy equipment or materials. If you are asked to lift or carry something exceeding weight limits or without proper assistance, you may lose your balance and fall, resulting in serious injuries.

Possible Damages To Recover

Offshore slip and fall accidents can cause a variety of injuries with costly consequences. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical Expenses: Past, present, and future medical costs associated with your injury.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for lost income due to your inability to work.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional pain caused by your injury.
  • Loss of Earning Capacity: Compensation for the future wages you are no longer able to earn due to your disability.

The specific damages you can recover will depend on the circumstances of your case.
