Were You Or A Family Member Injured In An Offshore Accident?
Years ago, Congress passed the Jones Act, aimed at protecting seamen and offshore workers injured at sea. If you were injured or if a family member was killed on a vessel in navigable waters while engaged in commercial fishing, offshore oil drilling or other maritime activities, under maritime law you are not limited to workers’ compensation as the sole remedy against the employer. The Jones Act provides a means of obtaining compensation after the death of a husband, wife, mother or father at sea — including on offshore oil rigs.
Contact a Texas lawyer at the Law Office Of Gregory P. Lee PLLC to schedule a consultation regarding any offshore accident which may be covered under the Jones Act.
We offer free initial consultations for injured longshoremen, seamen and their families in search of legal advice after an offshore oil rig accident or any other accident covered by the Jones Act. Offshore and seagoing vessels that will qualify a worker to file a claim under the Jones Act may include any ocean-going vessel: crew boats, tugboats, commercial fishing boats or cruise ships.
If your offshore injury does not qualify for a claim under the Jones Act, we are prepared to explore other possible remedies on your behalf, such as a third-party liability claim.
