Over $750 Million in Verdicts and Settlements and One of the First Maritime Law Firms Hired by Workers Injured on the BP Deepwater Horizon

In addition to having recovered over $750 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients in the past 5 years alone, we were one of the first law firms to hired by multiple workers who were injured while working onboard the BP Deepwater Horizon when it tragically exploded in April 2010.  While many law firms are still trying to resolve their cases today, our Offshore Injury lawyers were able to reach a highly favorable (and confidential) settlement on behalf of all of our clients within 18 months of filing suit against BP and Transocean.

As a result of the settlements, our clients will never have to worry about how they’re going to provide for themselves or their families again.

Transocean Rig - Jones Act Lawyer Houston-based Transocean just announced plans to scrap 4 of its rigs, specifically the Deepwater ExpeditionTransocean Legend, Transocean Rather and GSF Arctic III. Until very recently, all 4 had been designated as "held for sale." The move is expected to cost the company $300 million to $325 million in non-cash charges, net of taxes, during the first quarter of 2015, according to a statement issued yesterday. The company also announced plans to scrap 12 other floaters in addition to the 4 rigs already named. This announcement comes just a few months after Transocean's December 14th statement which divulged plans to scrap 7 other rigs, the Sedco 710, Sovereign Explorer, Sedco 700, Sedco 601, J.W. McLean, GSF Arctic I, and Falcon 100 costing the company $100 million to $140 million in non-cash charges, net of taxes. As oil prices remain low, and probably will for the foreseeable future, more and more companies will be taking extreme cost cutting measures like Transocean in order to make sure they are still around and able to do business when prices finally start to go back up. In the meantime, that will undoubtedly leave many offshore workers without a means of earning the money they need to support their families. Only time will tell whether or not this worrying trend will continue.
