Our attorneys have successfully helped maritime injury victims since we opened our doors. Our maritime attorneys know that maritime injuries can be life-changing, turning a routine day at sea into a devastating trip to the emergency room. Many of these injuries are preventable, however, and when you become severely hurt because of a boating accident, or unsafe working conditions at a port or at sea, you deserve justice – and you need legal help from an experienced maritime lawyer.
Houston Jones Act Lawyer
Maritime law is complex–there are several different sets of rules governing water-related injuries, such as the Jones Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, the Death on the High Seas Act, and general maritime doctrine. Determining which legislation is applicable is essential to preparing a successful case – and not all lawyers are familiar with the intricacies of each law. We are familiar with these laws because a significant part of our practice is devoted to helping maritime workers—and we evaluate each situation carefully to make sure we present an appropriate and effective case on your behalf. We have successfully recovered damages for clients including maintenance and cure, past and future medical expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
