Offshore Injury Attorneys
Offshore disasters can have devastating impacts onshore. After the BP Horizon disaster, our firm represented thousands of small business owners who recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in lost business profits all along the Gulf Coast from Texas to Key West, Florida. Business owners were decimated by the sudden and unexpected loss of revenue in the middle of prime time tourist season. We worked hand in hand with our clients, their CPA’s, and economists to ensure we understood each client’s specific needs. That in turn allowed us to help our clients keep their doors open and survive.

Offshore Injuries FAQs
It depends on where you are injured. If injured aboard a vessel while operating on the water, you may be covered by the Longshoreman and Harbor Workers Act. If injured on land, whether in a yard or on a pier or dock, you may be covered by the Jones Act.
A claim against your employer may or may not be barred by workers’ comp laws. There are many different factors that come into play and requires a review by an attorney of your specific coverage and accident.
