For personal injury attorneys, maritime law often proves one of the hardest areas to litigate. The numerous federal and state laws and regulations can often confuse even the best attorneys. Decades of experience, like the experience belonging to the attorneys at Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers, is required to maneuver claims. If you or a family member are hurt or killed while working on a fixed platform you should contact an experienced maritime personal injury attorney.
We understand from our research and claim experience that pursuing monetary compensation with success often relies on the ability of your attorney to navigate complex laws including the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, the Jones Act and other federal or state laws. Not all personal injury attorneys, even with a focus on the maritime injury, have the knowledge or ability to manage a fixed platform injury case.
