Accidents on waterways are all too common in Louisiana and other Gulf Coast states. Workers who are involved in these accidents can suffer life-altering injuries that render them incapable of continuing to perform their duties.
Worse still, those killed in these types of accidents often leave behind a family that must learn to cope with the emotional and financial turmoil caused by an accident that resulted from the negligence of others.
We Know Maritime Law
Maritime and Admiralty laws govern accidents that occur on the water or near waterways. This ancient area of the law requires specialized knowledge and skill to successfully represent those people who have suffered injuries in maritime accidents. Because so many people work in the offshore oil business in Gulf Coast states like Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Alabama, our extensive knowledge of the complex Maritime and Admiralty laws is vital for your case.

In addition, we have represented those who have worked on or used all types of watercraft or vessels such as jack-up rigs, submersible rigs, semi-submersible rigs, fixed platforms, tugboats, crew boats, pleasure boats and ferry boats.
