Our Houston Maritime Attorneys Help Seamen Injured in Galveston, Beaumont, Houston, and Across The Coasts and Waterways Of Texas

Sending Out A Lifeline When You Are Hurt At Sea

Our dedicated Houston maritime attorneys 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 shipowner 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.

Answers to some of the most common questions for people who have been injured aboard a commercial vessel.
