Louisiana Maritime Lawyers
Protecting the Rights
of Injured Workers
The New Orleans maritime attorneys at The Maritime Law Center for Personal Injury understand the devastation a serious or fatal injury can have on you, your job and your family.
Our maritime personal injury attorneys have been helping seamen and workers throughout the United States who have been injured in the Gulf of Mexico and on the Mississippi River. Quite simply, if you have been injured while working on a waterway, you need experienced maritime lawyers to help you obtain the compensation you require to recover physically and emotionally, and to pay bills and take care of your family.
Maritime law encompasses a variety of state and federal laws, including the Jones Act and Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. We have particular expertise in pursuing Jones Act claims on behalf of injured seamen.
You can be assured that your employer’s attorneys have a full understanding of these laws and how best to protect the company. We offer clients the same protection through our complete knowledge of maritime and admiralty law. We know which laws apply to the facts of your case, how to file maritime injury claims, where to obtain proper medical care, how to negotiate against powerful adversaries, such as large companies and their insurers; and we know how to litigate maritime injury and wrongful death cases in state and federal courts.
In addition to being well-versed in the complex aspects of maritime law, we have, through our many years of experience, amassed significant knowledge about nearly every waterways job, from shipboard officers and crew members to longshoremen and dock workers. We also have handled claims involving nearly every type of vessel and equipment, including platforms, spars, jack-up rigs, crew boats, lay barges, tankers, freighters, semi-submersible rigs, dredges, tugs, tows, supply boats, fishing vessels and cranes.
You can count on our commitment to your cause and our professionalism in handling your maritime law matter.
If you have been injured or a family member has been killed while working on the water, let us relieve your stress and anxiety by ensuring your rights are protected, even if you decide not to file a claim. We offer a free, confidential consultation in which we can answer your questions and help put you on the path to recovery.
Proudly serving workers throughout the country who have been injured in the Gulf of Mexico, Mississippi River or other navigable waterway.
