Our Louisiana admiralty lawyers handle only Jones Act and maritime claims for injured maritime workers.
You may have questions about how to best hire a Louisiana admiralty lawyer or Jones Act attorney. We’ve helped hundreds of injured vessel, barge and oil rig workers over the years and here are our thoughts.
You’d be surprised, but many law firms that advertise that they handle maritime cases, really only do such as a very small percentage of their law practice. Especially in Louisiana, you will find that most law firms advertise for maritime cases. This does not mean they truly focus on the type of case you have.
You will probably need help with medical treatment, medical tests and determining exactly how injured you are after your accident. Some law firms leave all that up to you. We disagree. We help our clients find expert doctors who will run proper tests and determine the full extent of any injuries you may have suffered. It’s the only way to best protect your health and find out how much compensation you need.
Most of our clients come in to our office feeling lost and overwhelmed. You will probably experience that at some point in your claim. Our office support team and attorneys work daily with injured maritime workers and we know how bad things can get for some of you. You are in a very different place than someone who had a small car wreck. Your experience through all this will be much easier and better with a good support team helping you the whole way.
In the end, your case does need to provide you with proper compensation. Make sure your attorneys have won and successfully settled very large cases. Your lawyers need experience getting high dollar settlements so they know how to maximize your recovery for you.
