If you have experienced an offshore accident or injury, hiring an experienced maritime injury law firm to represent you can help you navigate the complexities that come with a claim so that you and your family’s best interests are represented. The last thing you want is your case to be dismissed on a technicality. 

An experienced Louisiana maritime attorney will fight to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve – taking on your employer’s lawyers and insurance company with precision and dedication.

Louisiana accidents and offshore injuries we have worked with before

The Maritime Injury Law Firm represents workers in New Orleans, Louisiana, and the Gulf Coast who have obtained offshore injuries and illnesses. 

Though this list does not cover every accident that can happen when working offshore, it does list some of the most common accidents that occur.

  • Slips and trips, as well as falls from height and falls overboard
  • Fires, explosions, and exposure to toxic substances, and extreme temperatures
  • Equipment and machinery accidents
  • Injuries from falling, flying, and swinging objects

Unfortunately, the injuries obtained from these accidents often impact offshore workers and their families for years to come, which is why it’s so important to hire a dedicated maritime law firm to help you obtain the compensation you need to move forward.

What are some of the most common injuries that offshore workers obtain?

Some of the most common injuries to workers we see at The Maritime Injury Law Firm involve:

  • Injuries to the spinal cord, head, neck, and shoulders
  • Broken bones, crushed limbs, and loss of limbs
  • Cuts, lacerations, scarring, and burns
  • Respiratory illnesses, heart disease, and lung damage
  • Hypothermia and frostbite
  • Lead poisoning, asbestosis, and dermatitis
  • Brain damage and hearing loss
  • Fatalities

Unfortunately, the injuries obtained from these accidents often impact offshore workers and their families for years to come, which is why it’s so important to hire a dedicated maritime law firm to help you obtain the compensation you need to move forward.

Obtaining compensation for these injuries (or compensation for the loss of a loved one) is not as easy as you would hope. This is true even if you or your loved one is not at fault. 

Maritime employers will often try to settle for amounts that are far less than what the case is worth, which is why it is essential to have an attorney with experience in maritime law represent you. 

Why calling our Louisiana maritime injury law firm is key to your case

After an offshore accident or illness, any mistake you make throughout the claim and lawsuit process could cause your case to be dismissed – no matter how severe. 

The Maritime Injury Law Firm will guide you through every step to ensure that you do not lose your right to compensation. The sad truth is that your employer (or late loved one’s employer) will do everything within their power not to pay – no matter the circumstances surrounding your accident, or the years of service you have dedicated to the company.

Compensation for offshore accidents and injuries varies greatly.

They can include:

  • Maintenance and cure benefits
  • Receiving lost earnings
  • Medical care and expense coverage
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Compensation for wrongful death
