Offshore Injury Lawyers

The Nation’s Leader in
Maritime, Jones Act &
Offshore Injury Cases


Working offshore is not for the faint of heart. Neither is taking on maritime employers who insist on putting profits before the safety of their crews. At Arnold & Itkin, we never back down from a fight. Not when it means we can help an offshore worker or a family that has seen everything turned upside down by a serious maritime accident.

Maritime cases are complex, and defendants will throw everything they've got against injured workers' claims. Taking on oil and gas giants requires significant resources and experience. Our trial lawyers bring that and something else: a passion for helping others.

People come to our firm during the most difficult times of their lives. Often, they can't see a chance for a brighter future. Our goal is always to make sure they are given an opportunity to put the pieces back together, because our clients are our family.

Known nationwide as leaders in maritime law, Arnold & Itkin has handled the biggest offshore injury cases in history. Our attorneys have set and broken numerous records for the country's highest results, with more than $20 billion won for our clients. That figure represents lives changed, at-fault parties held responsible, and futures rebuilt.

Time and again, we have gone up against the largest companies and held them accountable for their wrongdoing. From representing over one-third of the Deepwater Horizon crew to helping widows of the lost El Faro crew members, we have helped seamen and families after every major maritime disaster over the past two decades.

And we will keep helping those who need it most. Call today at (888) 346-5024 to learn more.

    “Just knowing they were going to do everything they could to make sure they find out the truth, to make sure we were taken care of for life. Just seeing that they actually cared and wanted the best for the families. They didn’t just think you were a number. They actually care.

    “I told him, “Kurt you’re my hero. You’re my knight in shining armor.” Because that’s how I feel toward him. He’s there to protect me, and I feel so safe. They are driven. They are aggressive. They will not quit for you. They will not give up for you. That’s what makes them special.”
