Were You Injured In An Offshore or Maritime Accident?

Content Goes Here…

The maritime industry is an essential employment source in Houston and throughout the state of Texas.

Houston ranks second in the country for its contribution to the maritime industry, and when Texas residents work on docks and piers, and offshore on oil rigs, refinery stations, and other important maritime positions that are inherently dangerous, they can be injured or even killed when negligence is a factor.

Our Harris County maritime and offshore attorneys are well-versed in all laws that protect workers in case of an injury or the loss of their loved ones, including the Jones Act — part of the Merchant Marine Act — which protects American workers who are injured at sea.

While not all maritime employees qualify for compensation under the Jones Act, our maritime accident lawyers in Houston will review the circumstances of your injuries and pursue the best source of compensation for your unique case.

Our skilled legal staff offers services in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin because we believe in inclusion, fairness, and justice. It is only possible to successfully represent the people in our communities when we can successfully represent all people.
