Offshore

Injuries suffered while working on offshore oil and gas platforms can sometimes result in very complex legal cases. The attorneys at Anderson, Dozier, Blanda & Saltzman have many years of in-depth experience in this complicated area of law. As one of the top offshore law firms in Louisiana, we have been representing injured oil and gas workers for decades – and have successfully litigated numerous cases involving oil rig injuries in both state and federal waters.

Some of the most common injuries suffered by victims in offshore cases include:
  • Head trauma
  • Neck injuries
  • Spine injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Burns
  • Loss of limbs
  • Broken bones

Because of the variety of structures used in the oil and gas exploration and production industry, the first step in these cases is to properly identify the true nature of the structure and its precise location. Where the structure is a fixed platform resting on the bed of the Gulf of Mexico in federal waters, the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA) will entitle injured workers access to the jurisdiction of federal court. The federal statute allows the injured worker to recover damages from the party responsible for the accident.

In addition to OCSLA, our legal team has a thorough understanding of all laws and statutes that may apply to offshore and/or maritime injury claims. Our attorneys have the knowledge and skill to thoroughly evaluate and investigate your unique situation to determine whether you have a claim – ensuring that you receive the best possible representation in these often complicated cases.

Our law firm is dedicated to helping the victims of offshore accidents maintain their lives after they suffer a serious injury or other tragic event. Once we accept your case, we will provide you with financial support for vital medical care – and we can also help you find a physician, if needed. In addition, we provide counseling, support and guidance throughout your case. And just as importantly, we will handle all aspects of dealing with insurance companies, filing your legal claim and litigating your case from start to finish. You can rest assured that we will be here to help you throughout the entire legal process as we work toward obtaining the full value of your claim.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Finding yourself in the middle of a personal injury case is not a pleasant experience. I could not have been more blessed than to have Mr. Boyd Anderson represent me in that difficult time. He treated me and my family with respect and earned my complete trust. Mr. Anderson is an extremely skilled attorney and did an exceptional job with my case. His support staff, Tammy and Donna, are also amazing to work with. They are very thorough and took care of every detail, so that I could concentrate on healing. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Boyd Anderson to family and friends. Angie T.

Boyd Anderson, along with his associates and staff always keep you in the know. He is very personable, offers great advise and he saw my suit to the end personally. It’s very rare that an attorney personally responds back to emails and calls. Not to mention the accolades, experience and expertise is top notch and really impressive. I would definitely recommend this firm to anybody if they are serious about winning. This firm gets the job done and exceeds expectations. Shantele J.

With the plethora of advertisements one sees nowdays, it's difficult to discern just who is best qualified to represent you if you need legal assistance. An overabundance of tv commercials does not necessarily point one in the correct direction. When I needed help, I choose Boyd Anderson and his firm. Best decision I ever made. Superlative service throughout the legal process...and I very much appreciated the prompt attention to details I suspect other firms would have probably overlooked. Anderson's team and experience made a huge difference in my life...an exceptional group of professionals...for sure. Paulette P.
