Bloomfield & Katz was formed in 2003 combining the experience and expertise of over 40 years of practice between L. Jeff Bloomfield of Memphis, Tennessee, and Brian S. Katz of Paducah, Kentucky. We know that living and working on towboats is hard, dangerous, exhausting work and the risk of serious injury is ever present. Bloomfield & Katz represent people who have been seriously injured or killed by the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of others. Money cannot replace the support of a loved one killed due to a ship owner's negligence or repay a deckhand for the losses suffered in an accident that causes the amputation of a limb.
If you are injured seaman, it seems that the towing companies have all the advantages when it comes to your claim. Towing companies have access to teams of lawyers working for them. They have doctors who may be loyal to the company and not the patient. Frankly, most attorneys don’t have the knowledge and experience to confront the vast legal resources towing companies will bring to bear when faced with a claim. As trial lawyers, we will aggressively pursue your claim and we know that for you, it is everything.
Bloomfield & Katz knows that for you, there are only two possible outcomes, winning or losing, and we know, better than anyone else, that the deck is already stacked against you. Knowledge, skill, and discipline are your best weapons when you take on the company. Don’t take a chance with that other guy, know what you are up against, hire Bloomfield & Katz and even the playing field.
