What Kind Of Maritime Claim Do You Have?

Maritime law involves complex federal rules and statutes that govern how much compensation you and your family are entitled to after an injury at sea or in port. Depending on the facts of your case, you may have a claim under the Jones Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA) or general maritime law.

Whether you are a seaman, a longshoreman, a fisherman or an oil rig worker, it is crucial that you have a skilled maritime law attorney on your side to effectively use the applicable law and help maximize the compensation you receive.

Our West Bank attorneys represent workers injured on all types of maritime vessels, including tug boats, fishing trawlers, tanker ships and offshore oil platforms and drilling rigs. We can investigate maritime accidents anywhere in the Gulf South, including the Port of New Orleans, Plaquemines Port and Port Fourchon.

Injured maritime workers and their families often have a lot of questions about the law. We can answer your questions and keep you informed throughout the duration of your case.
