Offshore and Seaman Injuries

Business Law Whether you are a sailor, seaman, an officer, a harbor pilot, an oil worker, a technicianWhether you are a sailor, seaman, an officer, a harbor pilot, an oil worker, a technician, or a helicopter pilot, if you are injured while working offshore or near navigable water, you may be eligible to pursue a claim under the Jones Act. The Jones Act gives injured seamen the right to file suit against their employer for damages that occur on vessels, including oil rigs. In addition to reimbursement for your medical bills, you are entitled to compensation for past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, and for emotional distress.

Employers are responsible for maintaining a safe work environment. If their failure to do so resulted in your injury, we can help. Because insurance companies rarely compensate you quickly or fairly, no matter how serious the injury is, your stress can go on for years. Your injuries may keep you from work and play, and mounting medical bills may prevent you from returning to normal life, even after you’ve healed. I.S. Law Firm has the experience and knowledge to help you get back on track, armed with the compensation you deserve.
