Admiralty and Maritime Accidents

Texas Offshore Injury Attorney

Admiralty and maritime law deal with many issues. Accidents are one of them. These laws are intended to protect people who work offshore and to help them recover fair compensation when they get hurt. Laws alone will not ensure that you will be treated fairly by your employer, other businesses, and insurance companies. For that, you need experienced and aggressive representation.

At Clay Dugas & Associates, we provide the kind of experienced and aggressive representation that has been getting results for our clients in the Texas, Louisiana region for more than 25 years. Our practice includes:

  • Jones Act claims
  • Shipping accidents / boating collisions
  • Commercial fishing accidents
  • Longshoreman accidents
  • Accidents on processing vessels
  • Explosions on pressurized vessels
  • Oil rig construction accidents
  • Cruise ship accidents

As a firm, we handle both Jones Act cases involving quartered crew members and passengers of cruise ships, yachts, and other navigable vessels, as well as personal injury claims involving negligence on the part of product manufacturers or people other than the injured person’s own employer. We do not hesitate to take these cases to trial if that means a fair result. We know what we’re doing. We know how to investigate these accidents and we will move fast to document and preserve critical evidence.

We also know how to take care of our clients. We will respond immediately to your initial call and meet with you personally. If you do have a valid personal injury or Jones Act claim and decide to hire us, you will work closely with your lawyer and be kept fully informed and involved in the case as it progresses. And while we are always aggressive in trying to resolve cases as quickly as possible—we are equally thorough in making sure that we handle your case correctly at the same time.
