Maritime Injuries and the Jones Act — Knowledgeable Representation for Complex Cases

Injuries occurring at sea on oil rigs are highly complex and involve both state and federal laws. I have significant experience handling complicated maritime injury cases and will work hard to obtain maximum compensation on your behalf.

Maritime injuries are governed by the Jones Act, which entitles employees to bring legal action against their employer, rather than seeking benefits through Louisiana's workers' compensation system. In order to be successful, you must prove that your employer was negligent.

This could include failing to enforce safety guidelines, giving improper instructions, negligently maintaining machinery or contributing to an unsafe workplace. I will work hard to prove your claim and hold your employer accountable for your injuries.
