A jack-up rig is a type of mobile oil platform that uses supporting legs to balance the rig on the sea floor. These legs may be raised or lowered in order to maneuver the rig. Typically used in shallow waters, jack-up rigs continue to be built around the world for oil and natural gas drilling. Jack-up rig workers face a number of hazardous conditions when working on these platforms.
At Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., our lawyers represent individuals who work on jack-up rigs and other drilling rigs throughout Texas and the Gulf Coast. For nearly two decades, our attorneys have helped injured workers and their families with personal injury claims. We have a thorough understanding of the laws involved with these claims and how to pursue the appropriate compensation for our clients.
