George represented me when I got injured working on a tow boat. The company was playing pretty rough with me, but George was able to get them to provide my medical care and got me a large settlement. If you work on boats, like I do, I recommend George Vourvoulias if you are looking for a lawyer who knows maritime law.

Injured Offshore?

You have special rights and protections.
Learn what they are by downloading our free guide book:

Getting hurt in an offshore accident can sometimes result in a one-way ticket home—without the benefits you’re entitled to.

Maritime work can be dangerous and even deadly, but that doesn’t mean boat owners always take care of injured workers.

Your life might be falling apart right in front of your eyes, with no way to support your family and no end in sight.

Chances are, the boat owner now considers you “damaged goods” and has given you “the one-way ticket home.” You wait at home for the call about the next job that never comes.

That’s where I come in.

I have dedicated the past 20 years to fighting for the rights of offshore workers — and have a deep understanding of the specific challenges you’re facing:

  • The pressures placed upon crewmembers
  • The “company doctors’ assessments” that try to downplay those injuries or illnesses as an effort to undercut what you are owed
  • The insurance adjusters and employers who will try to trick you into taking a lowball settlement

And I know how to level the playing field.

Did you know?

Offshore workers have special rights and protections—more so than any other workers in the U.S. If you’re injured at sea, you’re entitled to maintenance and cure: a seaman’s day-to-day living expenses, as well as a seaman’s medical costs. In other words, you are entitled to automatic periodic payments for any illness or injuries sustained in the service of the ship.

Your rights are protected, and I am here to make sure that happens.

About George

A boat-load of experience, and a passion for justice.

Maritime is a very distinct area of law, unlike any other. And not every lawyer understands the ins and outs of these types of cases. I do. I know the pressures placed upon crewmembers. My job is to use my experience and legal knowledge to level the playing field and go after big, life-changing justice for my clients.

I was working on the Mississippi River as a deckhand when we were collided with by an upbound vessel pushing 40 barges. I was the only survivor. I hired George Vourvoulias and he went to work right away. He listened to my story and he came up with a plan on how to deal with the insurance companies and the big boat owners. If you need a maritime injury lawyer who knows his stuff, call George Vourvoulias. He’ll protect you and your family and make sure you’re taken care of when things go wrong.
