West Texas Maritime Injury Attorney

Skilled Advocacy for Issues Related to Maritime Law

When someone is injured or wrongfully killed offshore, personal injury law becomes more complicated. Hundreds of thousands of people from Texas work at ports and on various types of vessels, making maritime injuries a prevalent concern. Accidents that occur offshore are not evaluated under Texas law, as they did not occur on state land. Instead, maritime or “admiralty law” applies to offshore injury cases.

Our West Texas maritime injury lawyers are well-versed in the complexities of maritime law and are prepared to help guide you toward the best course of action for recovering damages. Call today for your free consultation: (888) 273-1045.

Types of Maritime Injury Cases

Some of the laws that apply most often in offshore injury cases include the following:

  • Jones Act – Injured seaman may legally sue their employers for injuries incurred while on the vessel. The injured party must demonstrate the employer or another crewmate was responsible for the accident due to negligence, or that the ship was unseaworthy.
  • Death on the High Seas Act (DOHSA) – Relatives of individuals who died at sea can pursue damages if they can demonstrate their loved one’s death was caused by negligence. The wrongful death must have taken place on international waters, at least three miles offshore.
  • Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA) – This is a no-fault statute similar to workers’ compensation claims. Workers may claim compensation for medical expenses and lost wages if they were injured while on the job.
