Offshore and maritime workers have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only are their jobs at risk due to the volatile oil market, virus outbreaks on oil platforms and working vessels are a concern due to the close proximity within which people work, the sharing of equipment and the distance from medical facilities. Furthermore, inconsistent prevention practices by maritime and offshore employers put maritime and offshore workers at greater risk of contracting COVID-19. Lewis, Kullman, Sterbcow & Abramson, LLC is currently handling cases where offshore and maritime workers have been exposed to and/or contracted COVID-19 while at work.
