When dealing with Offshore workplace Injuries, Experience Matters

If you are injured while offshore, the laws can get complicated very quickly. The laws governing your injuries and potential remedies depend upon who you are, where you were, and what you were doing at the time of the accident. Because of this complexity, it is important that you seek the advice of a Houston maritime attorney with experience handling legal claims related to offshore injuries around the Gulf Coast.

  • Offshore oil rig injury: We frequently represent oil and gas industry workers who have been injured or killed working on drilling rigs (semisubmersible rigs and jackup rigs), lay barges, drilling ships, supply boats and crew boats that service drilling rigs. We also handle nonvessel injuries, including those that occur on fixed platforms.
  • Seamen injuries: We protect the interests of seamen who are injured while employed on a cargo ship, boat, barge or other vessel. We also represent families of seamen who have lost their lives in wrongful death lawsuits, based upon general maritime law, the Jones Act, the Death on the High Seas Act and the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act.
  • Pleasure boat accidents: The U.S. Coast Guard and Texas state agencies establish rules for safe boating. However, many recreational boat and personal watercraft operators don’t know that they are subject to the same laws and rules as ocean-going vessels and other commercial operators. Filing a boating collision injury claim against a negligent boat or watercraft operator is typically complicated and may involve the highly specialized application of admiralty laws.
