Galveston, Texas Maritime Injury Lawyer

Do you work in the maritime industry? Have you been hurt while on the job? Did you know that you cannot file a workers' compensation claim? Do not panic.

We can help you take immediate and meaningful action.
Call 281-335-0015 for your free initial consultation on contingency fee cases.

Maritime injuries are regulated by the Jones Act, a federal law. Fortunately for you, it is generally easier to prove your case under the Jones Act than under state worker’s compensation laws. If you suffered a serious injury due to the unseaworthiness of a vessel, or if your employer failed to provide a safe sea vessel, we can help.

Protecting Maritime Workers

From commercial fisherman and seamen to merchant marines and ship cooks, we protect the rights of all maritime workers. Since maritime workers are not able to make workers’ compensation claims, filing a personal maritime injury claim is the only choice. However, unlike a workers' compensation claim, there is no limit to the amount you can collect in a personal injury claim.

Maritime Injury Types

We protect the rights of workers who have suffered any type of maritime injury. If you have suffered a ship injury, we can help you protect your rights. Over the years, we have helped a variety of maritime workers who have suffered a variety of maritime injuries:
  • Work Related
  • Capsizing 
  • Falling Overboard 
  • Wrongful Death 
  • Slip and Fall 
  • Collisions

Some accidents, such as those occurring on a jacked-up sea rig, may or may not qualify as a maritime accident. You can find out more about your rights by consulting with an experienced attorney.
