Worldwide Deepwater Drilling Company Injuries
Edison Chouest operates a fleet of offshore service and supply vessels that support deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and around the world. These ships include anchor handling vessels, construction vessels, tractor tugs and other large supply boats used for offshore drilling. The company boasts affiliate shipyards in Louisiana, Florida, Mississippi and Brazil. The vessels employ a variety of positions including ton-masters, seaman and engineers. Offshore injury disputes against companies like Edison Chouest require knowledgeable offshore injury lawyers like Doyle LLP.
Louisiana Roots, Houston Presence and Jones Act Employees
The company was founded in Louisiana and still maintains corporate offices there in addition to Houston, Texas. The company employs a number of hard working vessel crews, many of whom started their careers with other maritime employers who were acquired by Edison Chouest. The company’s rise as one of the larger marine transportation providers in the world is traced to their acquisition of smaller companies and the absorption of those employees. Even though Edison Chouest “is committed to providing the best possible working conditions for all of our employees”, unfortunately, many have sustained serious injuries while engaged in dangerous offshore drilling support work.
