Maritime workers and their families may know the dangers of their job, but no family can fully brace themselves for a fatal accident that alters their lives forever. In a time of complete emotional turmoil, families face overwhelming financial stress. Doyle LLP concentrates on providing the highest level of legal representation in fatal accidents. If your family experiences the loss of a loved one from their maritime or offshore job —whether on a vessel, in transport by helicopter, or in a longshore job, please contact our Houston-based attorneys. Our attorneys’ abilities to investigate and build cases diligently has resolved hundreds of maritime accidents and negligence claims originating along the Gulf Coast, Atlantic and Pacific ports, and around the world. In addition to the many critical differences in the laws applicable to fatal maritime accidents as opposed to those occurring on land, economic aspects of these cases can also be more challenging — due to both legal specifics and the often very substantial wages earned by people engaged in these high-risk jobs. A personal injury/wrongful death attorney with minimal maritime experience is not an appropriate choice in your situation.
Doyle LLP’s successful handling of hundreds of maritime cases has allowed us to understand the numerous nuances of the offshore industry and maritime and admiralty law. Successful pursuit of a maritime or offshore injury claim requires incredible skill and knowledge to find the best path to recovery. Lawyers without experience in the numerous acts and legislation of maritime law most likely fail to recover what your claim is worth. In pursuing maritime claims, we are able to grasp how calculations of lost wages must be presented to judges and juries so they can understand all your losses. In maritime cases with unique laws, this can be critical to recovery. We have experienced remarkable success in litigation against American companies for accidents and injuries that occurred in foreign waters.
If you experience any of these or other accidents while working offshore it is important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Guidance from the beginning ensures you maximize your chances for receiving a beneficial recovery. Whether tragedy struck off the Texas Gulf Coast, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or Florida, Atlantic Coast, Pacific Coast, or elsewhere throughout the world, we are prepared to investigate and fight for a financial recovery that truly helps you and your family. Please contact us now to discuss what happened and your legal options.
