Admiralty & Maritime Injury Attorneys
Louisiana Offshore Injury Lawyers
With its vast coastline, Louisiana has a rich history of offshore industries, including oil and gas, shipping, and fishing industries, with over 300,000 Louisianans employed in these fields. Like oilfield and chemical plant jobs (insert link to our oilfield chemical tab), injuries and deaths often occur in these jobs. Falls, explosions, burns, and exposure to hazardous substances are just some of the ways one can be injured while working on the water. If you have been injured while working on a ship, barge, ferry, oil platform, jack-up rig, or other water based transport, your ability to recover damages for your injuries will likely be governed by a special body of law known as maritime or admiralty law. Your claim is also likely to arise under several federal statutory laws, including the Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers‘ Compensation Act, and the Death on the High Seas Act, among others.
In most of these cases your right to recovery depends on where you fit within this complex body of laws. For this reason, maritime law is a highly specialized area of law which requires skilled representation to ensure recovery for injuries you may have sustained while on the ocean.
If you have been injured while working offshore, on the river, or on a cruise ship these laws could apply to you. Please contact the attorneys at Webre & Associates to discuss your rights and remedies.
