Skilled Legal Counsel After Offshore Injuries
Many offshore workers face dangerous working conditions every day. Safety hazards and accidents at sea can result in serious, catastrophic injuries and even death for these workers. The Jones Act provides maritime workers and their families with a system to recover financial compensation for work-related injuries and losses.
Unfortunately, filing a Jones Act claim is not easy for injured workers or the loved ones of those killed in fatal offshore accidents. Unlike under workers' compensation laws, injured seamen and women must show that someone is at fault for their injuries to obtain compensation under a Jones Act claim.
At Leigh Law Firm in The Woodlands, we take on complex cases like maritime accidents and get workers and their families the best possible results. We are a plaintiffs-only injury firm, and our lawyers are proud to represent seamen and women and their families.
If you work on a barge, offshore drilling rig, fishing boat, cruise ship, casino ship, charter boat, or any other type of boat, ship or sea vessel, you are likely covered under the Jones Act.
A Track Record You Can Trust
Whether your chief concern is medical bills, lost wages, or taking care of your family or yourself, you can trust that we will dedicate the full force of our resources to getting you the compensation you need.
We seek full and fair compensation for offshore injury victims, and our successful track record shows that we are more than willing and able to do what is best for our clients.
In some cases, such as when an injury is caused by defective equipment or an independent contractor aboard a vessel, it may be possible to pursue a third-party lawsuit in addition to a Jones Act claim.
While no amount of compensation can undo your physical and/or emotional pain and suffering, a successful claim under the Jones Act may result in compensation for:
- Past and future wage losses
- Past and future medical costs
- Pain, suffering and emotional distress
