Houston Vessel Accident Attorneys

Vessel Collision and Offshore Worker Injury Representation

If you have been injured while working on a barge, tug, towboat or other vessel in the Gulf of Mexico, you need to know what rights you have under the Jones Act and other maritime laws to recover compensation for your injuries. Jobs on these vessels are inherently dangerous and there are many opportunities for people to be harmed, especially when other crew members act negligently.

At the Houston law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, our lawyers have 70 years of personal injury experience representing injury victims in Texas, including injured seamen and maritime workers. We know the hazards of working offshore and are able to speak the language of injured tug and barge workers. We also know how to pursue monetary benefits for medical bills and other expenses.

For a free consultation, call (713) 222-7211 (toll free 713-222-7211) or contact us online.

Houston Vessel Accident Lawyers

Our firm has handled boat, vessel and barge accidents resulting from:

  • Slippery decks
  • Unsafe ladders
  • Understaffed crews
  • Tow wire and bridle line accidents
  • Winch accidents
  • Hydraulic leaks
  • Collisions with other vessels
  • Lack of safety mechanisms on vessels

Often, such accidents could be prevented if the companies responsible for these vessels would take the necessary precautions to prevent them such as replacing or repairing equipment, hiring and training staff properly and putting safety mechanisms in place.
