Maritime law is complicated and requires professional attorneys well-versed in the intricacies of this specialized law to do an adequate job of protecting clients’ rights. That is where our firm can help. We have some of the top maritime lawyers Houston, no matter what your injury on the sea, in the sea, or even by the sea actually is. Although we are located in Houston, we represent people all over the United States in incidents regarding maritime law.
Maritime incidents can be legally complex and are often different than laws that govern other kinds of accidents or incidents of neglect. We have represented clients involved in offshore oil rig incidents and many other kinds of maritime incidents. Our clients have been hurt, or a loved one was killed on drilling rigs, barges, drilling ships, or other watercraft transporting supplies or people to and from fixed oil or gas platforms and we have offered them the best representation possible.
If you find yourself hurt because, negligence of a pleasure boat, the top maritime lawyers Houston can ensure that your rights are protected. Recreational boats and personal watercraft may be smaller than cruise ships or working ships and boats, but the Coast Guard and the state of Texas expect them to operate under the same rules. If you or a loved one is injured or dies due to a boating collision and you believe the other party was neglectful, contact our firm to ensure that your rights are protected.
Work on the Seas
Sometimes when seamen are injured while working on cargo ships, boats, or barges, they feel that they have few rights and opportunities, even if the owner of the vessel was neglectful. We can help represent your rights, or the rights of your family. A family may need to file a wrongful death suit—and we understand how the Jones Act, the Death on the High Seas Act, or the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act might be part of your lawsuit. Attorneys without our level of expertise and knowledge in maritime law are not as skilled in protecting your rights, or the rights of your loved ones.
Don’t leave your case to attorneys who do not understand maritime law. We can help protect your rights and pursue monetary compensation to help pay for lost time working, physical therapy, or other expenses. If you are employed in a harbor, as a longshoreman, or work on a vessel, we can help ensure that you have the best representation possible when you go to court.
We can also help you if you have been hurt in a car accident. Just as competent in helping our clients who have been hurt on the water, we offer that same fierce representation for those injured on the road. Stop by and let us see how we can best help you.
