We understand that in personal injury cases, its not always just about the money – your health is also at stake! We strive to get our clients the best possible medical treatment as quickly as possible. In many cases, we force the injured person’s employer to immediately start paying Maintenance and Cure benefits. Maintenance and Cure refers to payment of an injured Seaman’s reasonable and necessary medical bills as well as payment of daily compensation. We have a solid track record of success. We have been involved in leading National Jones Act and Maritime law cases. Because of our track record, we receive many of our cases from referring attorneys and former clients who know that we will obtain the maximum result possible for our clients. Many of our opponents recognize that we are willing and able to go the distance against them and they frequently seek to settle the cases that we have against them.
Before we started representing injured persons, we defended large maritime companies when injuries occurred. We use that past experience to the benefit of our clients. Our past experience gives us a unique insight into how best to achieve maximum results for our clients. Knowing one’s opponent is key to victory! We have an in-depth understanding of the law. Most lawyers, including many maritime injury lawyers, do not know that when an offshore injury occurs the rules of civil litigation can change dramatically. If an injury occurs on water, maritime jurisdiction frequently applies. The Jones Act and Maritime Law provide many different favorable procedural rules, laws, and potential money damages. It is critical that attorneys handling Jones Act and Maritime law cases have an in-depth understanding of the Jones Act, the General Maritime law, the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act as well as the Longshore & Harbor Workers Compensation Act.
In addition to having learned the law, it is critical that Jones Act lawyers have an in-depth understanding of vessel operations and the way that maritime companies and vessel owners operate. This is why it is very important to speak to lawyers at a Jones Act law firm with superior knowledge and experience. Our Jones Act law firm attorneys at have the experience, knowledge and resources to obtain the maximum results possible under the law. As Jones Act and Maritime law attorneys, we handle many different types of offshore injury cases. We handle cases involving all types and sizes of vessels, personnel baskets, cranes, fixed platforms, semi-submersible platforms, jack-up rigs, offshore oil rigs, offshore high pressure piping systems, tug boats, barges, crew boats, commercial scuba diving, and shoreside injuries.
