Offshore Injury Claims

Our maritime litigation practice handles all types of maritime claims in almost any offshore industry, including:

  • Oil rigs
  • Barges

  • Common Causes of Maritime Accidents

In these physically intense work environments, a number of things can go wrong. Equipment can fail unpredictably due to a manufacturing defect, poor maintenance, or incorrect installation. Helicopters can crash and vessels can collide with each other or with large objects due to a captain’s negligence. People can be hurt loading or unloading cargo, in rough seas, or being transported to offshore locations. All of these factors and others can lead to a serious injury. We have skillfully handled personal injury matters that occurred on offshore oilrigs and platforms, fishing boats, barges, ships, and all types of marine vessels and fishing boats. We have experience regarding the requirements for making a claim under the Jones Act and the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, which cover maritime injuries in state or federal waters.
