Inherent risks exist for those working in the maritime industry. Employers must maintain the highest standards of safety to ensure the well-being of their personnel. When they fail in that responsibility, employees get hurt and need immediate help in filing an accident claim under the Jones Act or other maritime laws.
The Laws Regarding Offshore Accidents Can Be Complex
The Jones Act allows crew members working in the maritime industry injured in a work-related accident to hold maritime employers accountable for negligence. It allows injured workers to file claims for recovery against their employers. The attorneys at Gainsburgh, Benjamin, David, Meunier & Warshauer, L.L.C., possess a thorough knowledge of the law coupled with courtroom trial skills.
If you have been injured or are grieving the death of a family member in an accident occurring in navigable waters, take immediate action to retain aggressive legal representation. Our Louisiana and Mississippi maritime accident attorneys pursue the best outcome and protect the rights of:
