Injured While Working Offshore

“I was working on a jackup rig as a cook. I fell, burnt over 80 percent of my back. I hurt two discs in my lower back. It was really painful.”

How The Injury Affected You And Your Family

“It was really hard on me and my family, mostly my family because I couldn’t provide for them.”

My Company’s Response

“The company that I trusted so much, they abandoned me. Every time I called them and tried to get them to pay medical bills, or try to help me with even groceries or whatever, they wouldn’t respond to me. They’d just tell me somebody would get back with me.”

The company wasn’t concerned about how I was doing. They just kept trying to rush me back to work.”  “Two days after the accident, they was telling me that I’ll be back to work in two weeks. They were just trying to keep from reporting my injury to the Coast Guard, so they wouldn’t get in trouble. They had no concern with my injuries, my family, or what was going on with me.”

I Realized I Had To Protect Myself And My Family

“I had two choices. I could have hired a lawyer or I could lose everything. I decided to take that step and hire a lawyer.”
