Maritime work is essential to the Gulf Coast's economy. Unfortunately this profitable industry has also been the cause of thousands of injuries and deaths to offshore workers. As experienced practitioners of maritime law, we here at Best Law Firm know how dangerous the everyday jobs of seamen can be. There are several reasons why people get injured offshore and several laws that apply.

    Some of the most common causes of merchant seamen injury include:
    • Untrained or poorly-trained staff and crew
    • Failure of crew members to follow proper safety procedures
    • Inadequate safety procedures
    • Failure of company to obey applicable state and federal regulations
    • Careless operation of vessel's equipment
    • Onboard vessel defects

    Compensation for seamen injured while in a maritime setting is governed by a complex set of overlapping regulations and statutes. These include:
    • The Jones Act
    • The Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act
    • The General Maritime and Admiralty Law
    • The Admiralty Extension Act
    • The Public Vessels Act
    • The Federal Employees' Compensation Act
    • The Outer Continental Shelf Load Act
    • State workers' compensation laws

Determining which laws apply to your injury requires knowledge and experience from a reputable maritime lawyer.
