Accident at work within oil industry
Our client had an accident at work while off the coast of Africa, suffering a serious hand injury.
At the time of the accident, our client was employed by an Asia-based company and was working on a vessel operated by a UK based company but owned by a European-based firm.
Multi-jurisdictional issues with offshore accidents
The case is a typical example of the multi-jurisdictional issues which are increasingly prevalent in cases involving an increasingly mobile offshore workforce.
Like other similar cases in which Digby Brown are involved, the potential value of the work injury claim will have to reflect the specific circumstances of our client’s employment in the oil industry.
Learn more about the clients we have helped in the oil industry or if you would like to discuss you own circumstances, please either call us on 0333 200 5925 or fill in our short enquiry form and someone will be in touch.
