Maritime laws govern accidents that take place on the water or near waterways. This field of law is complex and requires specialized expertise. The Get Gordon team has local Alexandria, LA lawyers with an advanced understanding
of the offshore oil business and all aspects of the maritime industry. This knowledge and experience will be invaluable when handling legal cases involving maritime accident injuries that happen on submersible and semi-submersible
rigs, jack-up rigs, fixed platforms, tug boats, crew boats, ferryboats, pleasure boats, and other vessels.
The Jones Act gives offshore workers who are considered “seamen” federal protections, which includes crewmembers, divers, deckhands, and captains of ships, boats, and other water vessels in navigation. The Alexandria maritime attorneys
at our firm have represented a considerable amount of Jones Act claims. Jones Act lawsuits are filed against employers for personal injuries sustained by seamen employed by the company who were injured in the course of work.
