Houston Maritime Lawyers

Houston Maritime Attorneys

The city of Houston, with its prime location on the Gulf Coast, is a world leader in maritime trade, commercial fishing, offshore drilling, and a variety of other thriving maritime industries. Each year tens of billions of dollars of maritime trade and industry pass through the Houston area or are facilitated by people working in the Houston area.  As a result, many multi-billion and million-dollar companies have chosen to make their headquarters and/or employ large numbers of staff in the Houston area.  Additionally, the Port of Houston also provides direct access for mariners and trade to flow freely deep into the heart of Texas. Longshoremen and other workers injured along these waters may be able to pursue their claims through the LHWCA (Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act). For those injured while on the water though, they may need an experienced Jones Act offshore attorney like the ones at Doyle Dennis LLP to properly pursue what they are legally owed under federal and state maritime laws.

Houston Offshore Accidents Lawyers

Each year a variety of maritime accidents and offshore incidents for Houston maritime employers are unfortunately preventable. When proper procedures are followed and seamen are provided proper equipment the risk of injury and accidents goes significantly down. Often though careless or negligent employers, employees, third parties and others will put other maritime workers in the area or on the vessel at risk for significant injury or death. Offshore and maritime workers are legally obligated a safe place to work including a seaworthy vessel and in safe conditions. When companies fail to provide these legal rights and an injury happens, they may be liable for the damages directly caused as well as other obligations owed to seamen by the Jones Act.
While maritime accidents and offshore drilling incidents occur in waters throughout the world, often the company leadership and businesses are based right here in Texas. As such, offshore workers are often able to pursue justice and hold their employers responsible in the proper federal or local jurisdictions of the businesses they work rather than chasing justice in unfamiliar systems and jurisdictions of foreign countries and waters. Our experienced Jones Act attorneys will help you understand where your potential claim may fall under and what is the best way to pursue those claims.
