Throughout the inland waterways of the United States, seaman, captains, pilots, engineers, cooks, welders, laborers, and dockworkers are exposed to demanding, and dangerous, working conditions. On-the-job injuries and deaths occur too often in the maritime industry. Seamen routinely suffer injuries caused by dangerous conditions on boats, barges, work flats, platforms, and other vessels. These accidents frequently lead to surgery and extensive medical treatment, and even take limbs and lives.
Our firm represents injured workers and their families in serious injury and wrongful death claims governed by the Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, and other maritime laws. Because of our experience suing shipping companies, tugboat operators, barge companies, and their insurance providers, we are ready, willing, and able to face them in court.
If a member of your family has been seriously injured or killed as a result of a maritime accident, it is imperative that you get the advice of a seasoned maritime lawyer before you talk to the employer or the employer’s insurer. Please contact our office to speak with Mr. Katz for a free consultation and case evaluation. Mr. Katz is focused on winning cases covered by the Jones Act, and the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). He is dedicated to helping inured crew members, officers, stevedores, maritime workers, and their families obtain the compensation they deserve, and so desperately need.
