Beaumont Maritime Accident Attorneys

Offshore Injury Lawyers Serving Southeast Texas

Serious injuries can happen all over, even offshore and at sea. Those working in a maritime environment can sustain injury or death in many ways, from refinery explosions to shipping or boating accidents. Certain laws have been enacted to help protect seamen, such as the Jones Act. This federal law allows seamen injured in the course of duty to make a claim against their employer for personal injury damages. These workers would otherwise receive no compensation as they are not covered by the same state or federal workers’ compensation laws that land-based workers are.

While the Jones Act and general maritime law serve to protect seamen, no guarantees exist that anyone injured offshore or at sea will receive fair treatment from their employers, other entities that may have been involved, or the companies that insure them. An aggressive Beaumont maritime accident lawyer at Clay Dugas and Associates will protect your best interests and you can rest assured that your case will be handled with meticulous care and unswerving commitment.

Get the legal advice and support you need after a maritime injury by calling (409) 226-0990 as soon as possible. We offer free consultations and take cases on contingency.
