The Yancey Law Firm has handled injury cases related to working offshore in the oil and gas industry, 18 wheeler crashes, car crashes, airplane/helicopter crashes, drilling rigs, tugboats, supply boats, jackup boats, diving vessels, derrick barges, pipe laying barges, industrial/refinery explosions and other industrial casualties, defective products, including defective medication and exposure to chemicals in the work environment, including asbestosis (which causes mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer).
