By the very nature of their work, seamen, longshoremen, and offshore oil & gas workers are exposed to many conditions and substances which cause them serious illnesses and injury and even death. Sometimes an illness will manifest itself years after exposure to toxic substances. Unfortunately, some offshore companies and their insurers treat injured workers unfairly – often putting pressure on workers not to seek legal assistance to obtain all remedies to which they are legally entitled.
If you are injured offshore protect your rights by contacting Gomez Law Firm.
