Offshore Injury Law Firm Serving Texas

Injured On The High Seas or Texas Waterways? Our Nationally-Recognized Team Can Help.

The attorneys at Jolly Roger Law Firm have seen many sailors laid low due to injuries suffered at sea, preventing them from continuing to serve aboard their vessel until they have healed. In many cases these maritime injuries were the result of negligence. When your captain or ship owner has left you marooned because they failed in their duty to protect you, you are entitled to seek compensation from them to make you whole.

If your vessel was not safely maintained, or if your crew was improperly trained, then you are allowed to file a Jones Act claim against your employer. Our attorneys know what you are going through, as founding partner Jed Silverman has personal experience working at sea.

Injuries at sea are different from standard personal injury cases, requiring an attorney familiar with proving damages under maritime law. Contact us today to discuss your case.

Experienced Jones Act Attorneys

With over 50 years of trial experience, our skilled attorneys are fully prepared to litigate your case. Our goal at Jolly Roger Law Firm is to help injured offshore workers and seamen get the compensation they deserve. We also have extensive knowledge about working on cases involving The Jones Act.

The Jones Act, also known as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, is a federal law that provides important protections for seamen who are injured while working on vessels in navigable waters. Under the Jones Act, injured seamen have the right to seek compensation for their injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

If you are an injured offshore worker covered by the Jones Act, an experienced maritime attorney can help you navigate the complexities of maritime law and pursue a successful claim. We can help you gather evidence, assess the value of your claim, negotiate with insurance companies, and, if necessary, represent you in court. 

Maritime accidents can have devastating consequences, leading to serious injuries, financial hardships, and emotional trauma. Whether you are a seaman, longshoreman, or harbor worker, our team is here to protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Texas Offshore Oil Rigs

Texas is the largest oil producing state in the country, which, in turn, means it has the most offshore oil rigs in the country. These worksites can be very dangerous due to the hazardous nature of the environment. Workers are exposed to risks such as fires, explosions, toxic chemical exposure, and machinery accidents. The remote location of these rigs adds to the complexity of emergency response and medical evacuation procedures. Despite safety regulations, accidents still happen, and can lead to serious injuries or fatalities. Maritime injury attorneys play a crucial role in representing workers injured in these accidents, ensuring they receive fair compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. 

If you have been injured in an offshore accident, please get in contact with us today to schedule a consultation.
