$9.1 Million Settlement for Maritime Worker Injured Offshore

Ryan Zehl obtained a $9.1 Million settlement for an offshore worker who sustained a concussion and neck and back injuries while working on a jack-up rig.

The Defendant—a major oil and gas company—disputed liability, as well as the extent of our client’s injuries, and refused to initially offer more than $500,000 to settle the case.

After our maritime lawyers took over 20 depositions in the case, which established that the Defendant violated both company and federal safety procedures, the defendants agreed to settle the case for $9,100,000.

The settlement greatly exceeded our client’s expectations and will ensure that he’ll have the resources to take care of himself and his family for the rest of his life.

Attorney’s fees: $3,640,000
