Disputes with Maritime Leaders

Diamond Offshore Injury Disputes

Offshore Drilling Leader

Diamond offshore serves as a leader in the worldwide offshore industry. They operate 24 rigs, including semisubmersibles, drillship and jack-up rigs. Their headquarters reside in Houston, Texas with offices and operations around the world. As a deep-water drilling contractor, Diamond Offshore employs thousands of workers in different locations. Sometimes those workers are placed in dangerous situations and suffer injuries as a result. The high skill and tough labor of working on rigs usually means higher pay than comparable jobs. Once an injury happens, workers can be left physically and financially troubled. Diamond Offshore and other maritime companies have certain maritime laws and guaranteed compensation they must follow. If you are injured on a rig and need guidance on your rights and what you deserve, please contact the experienced offshore injury attorneys of Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers to help you today.

 History of Success

Even though Diamond Offshore claims to operate “with respect for the lives we touch and the impact we make”, they have failed workers in the past. We have personal experience helping Diamond Offshore workers receive the compensation they deserve from an offshore injury dispute.  In one of our past claims, Willie David Williams received an $9.6 million jury award in Texas. The case is currently on appeal. No recovery has been received to date.

Edison Chouest Offshore Injury Disputes

Worldwide Deepwater Drilling Company Injuries

Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO) manages service and supply vessels for offshore operations in the Gulf of Mexico and around the world. The vessels provide transportation, construction, towing, research and other broad support to drilling operations. ECO runs shipyards located in Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida and Brazil. The vessels employ numerous levels of maritime workers in various positions. An offshore injury dispute against Edison Chouest requires experienced offshore injury attorneys like Doyle Trial Lawyers LLP.

Gulf Coast Company under Maritime Law

Edison Chouest was founded in Louisiana and maintains corporate offices across the Gulf Coast, including Houston. Edison Chouest has grown to be one of the largest maritime service providers because of their acquisition of smaller companies. Many of Edison Chouest’s hard working employees started their careers with companies that ECO acquired. Unfortunately, numerous of their workers have sustained serious injuries on the job even though Edison Chouest “is committed to providing the best possible working conditions for all of our employees”. Offshore exploration and extraction has always been a dangerous business and Edison Chouest has failed to protect workers in the past.

In a past case against Edison Chouest, we represented an offshore worker after he suffered an electrocution while on a docked offshore supply vessel.  Working as a “rescue man” for a cleanup crew, he was shocked while trying to reset a light that had gone out.
