Offshore Worker Receives Substantial Settlement After Injuring Neck and Back on Ensco Rig


Maritime Worker who sustained back, neck and a traumatic brain injury while working on an Ensco Jack-Up Rig explains why he’d recommend Zehl & Associates to anyone who was seriously injured.

The Accident

“I was working on an offshore rig, about 7:30 in the morning. We were doing maintenance on an 500 pound diesel hose. It lifted up with the crane 80 feet in the air, when it broke. Hose came down, struck me on top of the head, knocking me out. I woke up in the chopper with a tremendous pain, headaches, neck, lower back, blurriness in my eyes.”

How Did The Injury Affect You?

“Getting hurt offshore really affected my life. I love my job, I love what I’ve done. I had two little girls I had to provide for, but after getting hurt, I didn’t know what to do. Getting hurt changed my life.”

I Wanted the Best Maritime Lawyers on My Side

“I knew I didn’t have a future offshore after the incident. I knew I had to turn to a lawyer. With medical expense bills coming up, I had two small daughters I had to take care of, I needed somebody to look after our future.”

Choosing the Maritime Lawyers at Zehl & Associates

” I went searching for lawyers, and I found Zehl & Associates. I gave them a call, and another two hours, Brian came up to my house, sat down with me. I explained to him what had happened. He said that he would get me to the best doctors, not to worry. He would make sure me and my family were taken care of. Basically, he kept his word.”

My Experience with Zehl & Associates

“I spoke with several other guys that were injured offshore, asking questions about their cases. They basically told me, with their lawyers, it could be months before they would hear anything, or with what was going on with their cases. They’d stay stressed out and everything. With Zehl & Associates, I didn’t have no worries. I could always pick up the phone and call and always talk to somebody, knew what was going on every week with my case. They really done a fantastic job on my case, and I thank Zehl & Associates for what they’ve done.”
