Workplace Accident in Texas

Our client was an English oil rig worker working in Texas. He was being transferred from an oilrig in a metal cage which was accidently dropped into the water below.  Our client thought he was going to drown, but managed to struggle free and was later rescued by coastguards.

Our client suffered severe post-traumatic stress as a result of his ordeal.

We managed to bring his claim in England, although his accident happened in America. This meant that he would receive higher compensation. After tough legal argument, the Defendant caved in a week before trial and our client won £270,000 in compensation.
