Maritime and Offshore Injury

Texas’s Leading Maritime & Offshore Injury Attorneys

 

Maritime and offshore workers have been a vital part of the American economy since colonial times. Despite advancements in safety technologies and government regulation, maritime and offshore workers have an extremely high risk of suffering an on-the-job injury.

When these workers endure an offshore injury, they often face physical, mental and financial stress.

At the Amaro Law Firm, our Houston maritime and offshore injury lawyers understand the difficulties these workers can endure in the wake of a maritime accident or offshore injury. We also know how challenging the recovery process can be. This is particularly true considering that employers and their insurance providers tend to be focused on underpaying or denying workers’ injury claims (to preserve their own bottom lines).

That is one of the main reasons why our Houston maritime attorneys are dedicated to:

  • Protecting injured maritime workers’ rights
  • Helping them pursue all available legal remedies
  • Maximizing their financial recoveries so they can restore their lives.

Causes of Maritime & Offshore Injuries

On a daily basis, maritime and offshore workers encounter an array of hazards, including (but not limited to):

  • Slick surfaces
  • Heavy, unsafe loads
  • Heavy, complex machinery
  • Exposure to dangerous, toxic and volatile chemicals.

 

When employers or others fail to provide essential training, fail to maintain equipment or otherwise act negligently, these (and other) hazards can result in maritime accidents like (but not exclusive to):

  • Explosions and fires
  • Vehicle, vessel and tug collisions
  • Helicopter crashes
  • Lifting accidents
  • Falling accidents, including slip and falls, falling from elevated areas, equipment falling on workers, etc.
  • Diving accidents
  • Drilling accidents
  • Crane failures
  • Line handling accidents.

 

Common Injuries

Maritime and offshore accidents can cause a range of injuries, the worst of which can have lasting or potentially deadly impacts. Some common maritime and offshore injuries include:

When maritime workers sustain these or other job-related injuries, the circumstances surrounding the injury will impact the options for financial recovery. The following are some questions that can help uncover the available legal remedies in the aftermath of a maritime or offshore accident:

  • When and where did the injury occur?
  • When and where did the worker receive treatment for the injury?
  • Did the worker receive proper safety training for the job?
  • Did the employer provide adequate safety equipment?
  • Did the employer comply with all federal and state worker safety regulations?

 

Eligibility for Maritime & Offshore Injury Claims: Who Can File a Maritime Injury Claim?

The booming maritime industry in the U.S. employs at least 1.2 million Americans.1 Among those are workers like the following, who may qualify to file a maritime injury claim (according to U.S. maritime laws):

  • Dockworkers
  • Seamen
  • Longshoremen
  • Shipbuilders
  • Shipbreakers
  • Offshore oil rig workers.

 

Maritime Laws: Types of Maritime & Offshore Injury Claims

The type of maritime or offshore injury claim these and other injured maritime workers can pursue will depend on:

  • The nature of the injured maritime worker’s job
  • The exact cause(s) of the accident or injury.

The following presents a brief overview of the different types of maritime injury claims. Click the heading for more information about a particular type of claim or contact the Amaro Law Firm for information specific to you and your potential claim.

 

Jones Act Claims

The Jones Act offers full coverage to American seamen who have suffered a maritime or offshore injury. Also known as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, the Jones Act allows an injured seaman or maritime worker to file an injury claim against an employer when:

  • The injury was sustained aboard a ship.
  • The ship was unseaworthy.
  • The employer engaged in negligent behavior.

Although the Jones Act entitles a seaman to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages, employers and their insurance companies often try to limit or eliminate these protections.

 

Longshore & Harbor Workers Compensation Act (LHWCA) Claims

The LHWCA covers workers who are not protected by the Jones Act. This includes longshoremen, dock workers, and other employees who are injured while constructing, repairing or demolishing ships in docks and shipyards.

LHWCA claims have strict filing deadlines, and they go through a federal agency (rather than a state agency). Similar to workers’ compensation claims, LHWCA claims can be pursued regardless of fault. Understanding the facets and requirements for filing these claims is critical to getting them approved.
 

Death on the High Seas Act Claims

When a ship owner’s negligence causes a seaman to lose his life aboard a ship, the Death on the High Seas Act allows the worker’s family to recover damages from the vessel’s owner. For a Death on the High Seas Act claim to be eligible for compensation, it must:

  • Be filed within three years of the incident that caused the worker’s death
  • Involve a fatality that occurred more than three nautical miles off of a U.S. shore (i.e., This Act does not cover deaths on Great Lakes, rivers or other U.S. territorial waters.)
  • Demonstrate that the worker’s death would not have occurred if the vessel’s owners had taken the proper precautions to ensure the worker’s safety
  • Be filed by a “personal representative” of the worker, such as the worker’s spouse, parent, child, or anyone dependent on the worker’s income.

 

Oil Rig Explosions

At any given time, an oil rig can be rife with potential dangers, including a risk of fires and explosions. When oil rig explosions occur, the devastation can impact oil and gas workers, those on adjacent properties and the well operation itself.

The liability issues can be just as complex, with various parties potentially being liable. Equipment manufacturers, subcontractors and oil companies are just a few of the parties who may be liable for oil rig explosions.
 

Cargo Damage & Claims Under the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act (COGSA)

The COGSA protects cargo shippers in the event that their goods traveling to or from a U.S. are damaged in transit. As the U.S. enactment of the Hague Rules, the COGSA provides that shipowners pay cargo owners a specific amount (usually $500) per packaged damaged.

The lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm can help you protect and advocate your rights while positioning your maritime injury claim for success. Resourceful and compassionate, our attorneys have extensive experience helping injured workers:

  • Successfully navigate the recovery process – Whether an injured maritime worker is pursuing a Jones Act claim, an LHWCA claim, a claim under the Death on the High Seas Act, a COGSA claim or another claim, our lawyers can help.
  • Pursue all available legal remedies – We have the knowledge, skills and resources to help injured workers maximize their financial recoveries.
  • Secure the recoveries and justice they deserve – We are tireless advocates for injured workers. We won’t back down until our clients obtain the compensation and justice to which they are entitled.

The representation of a lawyer at the Amaro Law Firm can make all of the difference in the outcome and recoveries for these claims.
 

Outcomes & Recoveries: Compensation for Maritime Injury Claims

Successful maritime injury claims can result in various damages, depending on the nature of the claim and injuries. In general, these awards can include compensation for (but not necessarily limited to):

  • Medical expenses, including hospital bills, surgery costs, doctors’ office visits and physical therapy
  • Lost wages, including past and future lost income
  • Pain, suffering and emotional distress.

The Amaro Law Firm has helped numerous maritime and offshore injury victims secure the financial recoveries they need to restore their lives. Our record of success and exceptional representation in maritime injury claims has earned us 5-star ratings on Google and Facebook.

Amber Epperson
“ The Amaro Law Firm is simply the best there is! I contacted them trying to find someone to handle my serious head-on motor vehicle accident where the defendant rammed into me at 35-40 mph. He was ticketed for the accident and I was left in my car, deployed airbag in my lap, with serious injuries that I still suffer from almost 4 years later with future joint replacement surgery yet to come. Felipe was my first contact (aside from the receptionist who was very friendly and professional) and he spent almost an hour patiently listening to me explain my case and the accident and each of my injuries. The next day, I met with Wendy Zagala, firm paralegal, who spent 3 hours (!) before the firm had even taken me on as a client, listening to every minute part of my story, from the horror of watching the defendant barrel into me to the terror of being back-boarded on a stretcher to the hospital to the frustration and disgust brought on in dealing with the defendant's insurance company's attorney and his lies and game playing. Tears, anger, frustration, and an ever-growing sense of hopelessness ... until I got to the Amaro Law Firm. Mr. Amaro's prior experience as a insurance company defense attorney assured me that he would know exactly how to handle my case. His vast experience, his integrity, his professionalism, his dedication, his support and compassion, his doggedness, his intelligence ... what more can one ask for in seeking a personal injury attorney? Nothing! ” Lori Khan

As the owner of an accounting consulting services business, I have had the pleasure of working with the Amaro Firm for almost three years on Deepwater Horizon oil spill settlement claims litigation. Our work together on the Deepwater Horizon spill claims process involves navigating an extensive and complex settlement agreement and representing victims of the Spill against numerous parties whom all have a vested interest in ensuring that those victims never receive economic remuneration. Throughout this arduous process, the Amaro Firm’s staff has consistently demonstrated themselves to be highly skilled, insightful, meticulous, and unrelenting in their pursuit of justice for their clients. David Miller is a model example of the exceptional attorneys working at the Amaro Firm. While collaborating directly with Mr. Miller for the past eighteen months on Deepwater Horizon Settlement claims, I have witnessed first-hand his excellent analytical skills and ability to quickly formulate an effective strategy for each individual client. Additionally, Mr. Miller’s keen eye for detail and exceptional writing skills make him an invaluable asset in virtually any legal setting. Perhaps most importantly, Mr. Miller is easily accessible at all times and is highly motivated to help each and every one of his clients and vendors succeed in any way he can. All of the aforementioned attributes are also exemplified by James Amaro, the Managing Partner of the firm. Mr. Amaro is a leader in his field and is an impeccable example of the intellect and unwavering persistence required of all attorneys involved in guiding clients through complex legal disputes. Due to the high degree of competence, skill, and overall professionalism exhibited by the Amaro Firm I would highly recommend their services to anyone in need of expert counsel with their BP Economic or Medical claims, general insurance disputes or personal injury lawsuits, especially trucking accident litigation.

Hello, my name is Matthew Scott. I live in Florida and after the BP oil spill occurred, the company I work for was asked to send representatives to aid in the security of the areas where the workers cleaning the oil spill were and their housing areas. (Tent Cities). I was there for five weeks working 12 hours on and 12 hours off. Even with all the precautions that were taken to prevent anything from happening I did feel it necessary to file a lawsuit against BP. The Amaro Law Firm handled my case and it was completed to my satisfaction. Without the help of paralegal Candace McCullough, I feel it would have been much harder for me. She is truly a great asset to the law firm. Thanks again Candace McCullough for all you did for me. ”

Thank you so much for taking care of that amd still kept it very professional. If I recommend this firm?, INDEED, I sure do, with my eyes closed!!! Happy Holidays and keep it up!!! ”
