There are two places named Rosebank in Scotland, and one in Lancashire, and there is also the Rosebank oil and gas field off the Shetlands. There are not likely to be any serious injury solicitors Rosebank based in any of these places however, as they are small. If you are a Rosebank resident, what could you do if you wanted to file a personal injury compensation claim? The answer is straightforward; call us at Accident Advice Helpline for expert legal advice on one of our freephone numbers given below. We are a law firm that works with a team of expert serious personal injury solicitors who are based all over the UK and the good news is that they work on a no-win, no fee* basis.
Why seek serious injury solicitors in Rosebank?
You may need the services of serious injury solicitors in Rosebank, or ones based elsewhere in the UK if you have been injured in an accident which you, along with them, could prove was not your fault. You may also be seeking a firm of serious injury solicitors in Rosebank, for example, if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove, again with the help of your injury solicitor, was caused as a result of another person’s negligence.
Oil rig accidents
Oil rig accidents make the headlines when they happen, as they can be disastrous. There was the Piper Alpha disaster in 1988 in which 167 people died off the coast of Aberdeen, Scotland. The platform was destroyed completely and it took three weeks for the fire to be extinguished under the leadership of Red Adair, the specialist in controlling such blazes.
More recently four people died when a Super Puma helicopter got into difficulties and was forced to ditch just off the Shetland Isles in August 2013. Oil rig workers who work off the coast of the UK are in danger from the elements even when being transported to and from the rigs.
Needless to say there are strict guidelines to follow when on a platform, but slips, trips and falls can occur. Working in extreme weather conditions is hazardous, and when performing manual handling tasks involving heavy machinery, injuries can occur. If you have been injured in an accident on an oil rig, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that the accident was not your fault, but due to another person’s negligence. You should consult a firm of serious injury solicitors in Rosebank or elsewhere, or us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you have in which to make a claim.
