Serving Injured Workers Across The Gulf Coast

February 2020 Archives

Are you prepared to navigate rough seas?

When you are working as a seaman aboard an ocean-going vessel, a lot can go wrong. Even seemingly minor injuries can worsen when you are miles away from hospitals and surgeons. That doesn't even address the damage that can come from rough seas that can toss even huge ships around like they were plastic boats in a child's bathtub.

3 Common hazards that await cruise ship workers

Whether you’re a crew member or an entertainer, a repair worker or food server, you put in the effort to make sure your passengers enjoy themselves and stay safe while on board a cruise ship. But while you may work hard to keep any threats to your passengers’ safety at bay, there are also hazards that can put you in danger that you should be aware of.

Seek legal representation for maritime accidents

If you are an ablebodied seaman or other maritme worker, if you get injured on the job, you could face months out of work. That's if you are able to return to work at all. The injuries that you suffer could render you unable to ever hold a job in this physically grueling industry again.

When did the Jones Act go into effect?

The Jones Act has had a lasting impact on maritime activities in the United States. Perhaps most notably, it makes it so that shipping from one U.S. port to another cannot be done by foreign companies. The ships used must be operated, owned and built by people who are citizens of the United States or permanent residents within the country.
