Working at sea or offshore is a very common job in Louisiana – and it can be very enjoyable. However, there are many dangers that lurk there as well. While the maritime and oil & gas industries provide many wonderful job opportunities, accidents on ships, rigs and platforms are an all-too-common fact of life.
If you’ve been injured in a maritime or offshore accident, we urge you to contact Bryan Fisher and the legal team at Fisher Injury Lawyers immediately. We possess a full understanding of the complexities of maritime law – in addition to a great deal of experience in winning personal injury cases in this specialized field. Our team includes an experienced admiralty lawyer who will fight for your rights and help ensure that you get maximum compensation for your injuries.
As most maritime-related and offshore injuries occur in areas that are not covered by state Workers’ Compensation laws, getting the compensation you deserve from your employer can often turn into a legal battle. When such disputes arise, Fisher Injury Lawyers is here to help. We have a wealth of experience defending roustabouts, roughnecks, drillers, toolpushers, fishermen, cruise line employees – virtually anyone who works offshore or on ships and boats.
In addition, we are very well versed on the Jones Act. Under the parameters set forth by the Jones Act, injured seamen may be entitled to a variety of benefits if their injury stems from negligence, defective equipment or a variety of other sources. If your injury is the result of any fault of your employer or the vessel itself, we will see to it that you receive the maximum benefits of the Jones Act including maintenance, cure and unearned or lost wages.
Maritime and offshore injury cases present complexities that are different from other personal injury cases. But you can rest assured that the legal team at Fisher Injury Lawyers is up to the challenge and will provide you with outstanding legal representation to help you win the compensation you deserve.
