When you work on a maritime vessel, your safety is not guaranteed. Your average workday contains a number of operations and procedures that can be incredibly risky and dangerous. Brasher Law Firm, PLLC is in close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. Thus, throughout the firm’s 22+ years of combined experience practicing personal injury law, we have seen numerous cases concerning offshore injuries.
Our experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorneys understand the frustration and stress that can result from an injury sustained from an accident while working offshore. Not only are victims under physical pain, but they may also be crushed by expensive medical bills and a loss of income. We believe that the pain and suffering that victims of offshore accidents and their families endure should be compensated by the responsible party. Brasher Law Firm, PLLC will proudly represent employees injured on maritime vessels, including barges, fishing vessels, oil rigs, and cargo ships.

Were you injured in an accident while working at sea?

An average workday for an employee of a maritime vessel includes various dangers and risks that can lead to back, head, or neck injuries, as well as burns and loss of limbs. While vessels have regulations to enforce the safety of operations and a safe work environment, they are often violated by the negligence or recklessness of an employer or coworker.
Offshore injuries can be caused by the following common offshore accidents:
  • Deck accidents
  • Equipment failures
  • Machinery malfunctions
  • Falls from heights
  • Slips
  • Explosions and fires
  • Falling cargo
  • Chemical exposure
  • Drowning
If such an accident causes you an injury, the financial burden should not be on you. Rather, the responsibility should lie on the parties who failed to provide adequate supervision or risk assessment, or failed to adhere to standard safety protocol. Our Beaumont personal injury lawyers want to help you hold them accountable for jeopardizing your well-being and are prepared to fight for your compensation.

Know Your Maritime Rights

At Brasher Law Firm, PLLC, we want to ensure that you understand your legal options and rights. Under maritime law, including the Longshore and the Jones Acts, you have the right to pursue compensation for injuries caused by offshore accidents. The Longshore Act allows maritime workers who do not qualify as “seamen” under the Jones Act to take legal action for injuries sustained on the job.
The Jones Act decrees the following three primary rights of seamen:
  • The right to sue employer for negligence
  • The right to sue owner of vessel for unseaworthiness
  • The right to seek “maintenance and cure”
If such an accident causes you an injury, the financial burden should not be on you. Rather, the responsibility should lie on the parties who failed to provide adequate supervision or risk assessment, or failed to adhere to standard safety protocol. Our Beaumont personal injury lawyers want to help you hold them accountable for jeopardizing your well-being and are prepared to fight for your compensation.
