Oil, gas or shipping accident

Understandably given the location of Aberdeen as the European centre for the oil industry a lot of these types of cases are not confined to the North Sea and Digby Brown’s work will often cross international borders when helping workers who have been injured in the course of their work.  Our specialist Foreign and Travel department will be able to assist when the accident happens abroad.

Unrivalled experience

The legal experience and knowledge required with these types of complex cases can only be gathered after significant time dealing day in day out with the complexities of International law, health and safety protocols in conjunction with a significant understanding of the workings of the petroleum and related industries.

The exploration and production of oil and gas is a diverse global industry. We have unrivalled experience of acting for clients injured while working in the energy industry.

We regularly deal with accidents on fixed drilling platforms on land and offshore such as accidents on the drill floor, on the BOP, on the Derrick, on helidecks and in accommodation modules.

We have dealt with accidents on vessels including drill ships, FPSO's, semi submersibles, jack ups, supply vessels and stand by vessels. 

We have dealt with cases arising from shipping accidents caused by collisions or faults with the vessel's design, maintenance or systems.

Personal injury cases in Scotland and overseas

We have dealt with a wide variety of personal injury cases in the oil and gas sector including injuries caused by explosions, defective equipment, work at height, lifting operations, helideck operations, testing, wireline, rope access, decommissioning, subsea work and manual handling operations on manual and automated assets.

We have advised clients who have been injured in Scotland and overseas including Africa, India, the Middle East, the U.S., mainland Europe and Australia acting for both UK and overseas nationals. We have pursued personal injury claims in the Scottish courts and foreign Courts applying Scots and International Law.

We have dealt with cases for employees injured travelling to and from work including accidents while platforms are under tow and accidents travelling between locations by road, sea or air. We have advised clients involved in fixed wing aircraft and helicopter accidents, including fatal accidents when we have advised the families of the deceased.

We regularly deal with cases arising from the onshore service industries including fabrication, maintenance, testing and research.

Our clients range from the most junior green hand trainees and roustabouts to senior management. We act for employees, contractors and consultants and all trades such as scaffolders, painters, blasters, welders and stewards. We regularly pursue claims against owners, operators, employers and contractors.

Oil, gas or shipping accident compensation
