Oil Rig Accidents Oil Rig Disasters Offshore Drilling Accidents
If I am seriously injured in an oil rig accident who is responsible for my medical bills and lost wages Unfortunately in today's environment there's a great push to produce as much oil as quickly as possible and as a result a lot of short cuts get taken. We're seeing a lot of calls from clients who have been injured in the oil field either onshore or offshore. If you've been injured in an oil field incident, there are several possibilities for you to obtain compensation. First your employer may have workers' comp coverage.
That will provide you with payment for your medical bills and your lost wages. If your employer does not have workers' compensation coverage you can make a claim for negligence directly against your employer. Now that's assuming you work for either the driller or one of the service companies. If on the other hand some of your injuries were caused by the negligence of a company other than your employer, such as you work for one of the service companies and another service companies conduct caused your injuries, or the driller.
President Park address nation on state affairs 4
As she approaches the midpoint of her fiveyear term in office later this month President Park Geunhye addressed the nation earlier this morning. Laying out how she plans to run the country in the second half of her presidency she sought public support for the four areas shes targeted for reform namely the public labor finance and education sectors. For details we connect to our presidential office correspondent Choi Yousun. Mark. Emphasizing that the next three to four years will be a watershed to determine the future soundness of the Korean economy President Park urged the Korean people to participate.
In the governments campaign to carry out a set of structural reforms. Referring to the unemployment rate among Koreas young people which has surpassed 10 percent the president sought public support for a wage peak system of reducing wages for older workers to hire more young people. Urging members of the older generation to give way to the young she said addressing the youth unemployment issue is key to resolving the economic and social fallout from Koreas fastaging lowbirth society. President Park then called for fairness and flexibility in the labor market determining.
Employment and wages based on a workers abilities and achievements not solely based on job security or how long the worker has been employed. The tripartite dialogue between labor management and the government on reforms has been stuck in an impasse since April after they failed to reach a compromise on a number of issues including the wage peak system. Labor unions say the system will not be effective in resolving the problem of youth unemployment. Can we expect the three parties to return to talks after the presidents remarks today Well Mark its not certain since.
The involved parties havent narrowed their differences. But the president today vowed to complete implementation of the wage peak system and abilitybased wage structure in public institutions within the year. She also called on the parties to resume negotiations while promising measures to boost the social safety net such as raising unemployment benefits from the current 50 to 60 percent of the unemployeds average wage and helping the unemployed find new jobs. President Park also talked about the other reform tasks. Concerning the public sector she vowed to unify projects that overlap between public.
DOHSA law antiquated Jones Act can help injured offshore workers
I'm Jim Adler, the Tough, Smart Lawyer. I want to speak to family members or loved ones of offshore workers, who were killed or died more than 3 nautical miles from shore. The Federal law or the Death on the High Seas Act says you can't be paid for mental anguish or pain suffering that you suffered due to the death of a loved one. All you can get are lost wages of that deceased loved one. That's just not fair, but that's what the Death on the High Seas Act says. This is an old law that needs to be changed.
But, there is a law that says you get loss wages and money for pain suffering if you were hurt, injured or incapacitated, working on a floating vessel, such as a ship, offshore rig or supply boat. How does that make any sense How is it that it's bad news for the survivors of the Deep Water Horizon disaster that killed 11 workers last year and they get nothing for their mental anguish or their pain suffering, or their loss of companionship But on the other hand, there is a law that says you get lost wages and money for pain.

Poor performance in shipbuilding industry poses risk to government finances OE
Koreas shipbuilding industry was once one of the main driving forces for the countrys economic growth. But a recent OECD report says the sector is now posing a threat to the economy. Kim Minji explains. Koreas shipbuilding industry is facing serious challenges to getting itself back on solid footing. This, according to a recent OECD report that says the global economic crisis has dented the industrys finances. The profitability, or Ebitda on sales,. of publiclytraded Korean shipbuilders stood at around five percent in 2012,. in contrast to the 11 percent in 2008.
Ebitda refers to the earnings before the deduction of interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses. The figure also falls short of the levels recorded by companies in Japan, China and Germany. The OECD report also points out that the ability of Korean shipbuilders to generate enough profit to cover their debts has declined since 2007. It says while their average debt levels were less than one and a half times larger than their profit in 2007,. the ratio was above six in 2012. To be financially stable, a companys debt level should not be more than three times.
Its profit. The shipbuilders weak performance has also led to more government involvement with government agencies increasing their ownership role in the industry. and taking on more risk. If the situation were to continue,. the report warns it could have an impact on employment and the financial sector, which could result in a domino effect on the economy as a whole. In dealing with the aftermath of the crisis,. the report says the government needs to maintain a level playing field between public and private entities,. and manage its risks.
