Championing Maritime Injury Victims
The perils faced by workers, whether at sea or in ports and harbors off the Mississippi coast, demand specific legal protections. Maritime law, distinct from state labor laws, offers these protections. For instance, the Jones Act provides critical rights for maritime workers injured on the job. Workers not covered by the Jones Act may seek relief under the Longshoremen & Harbor Workers Compensation Act (LHWCA). If you’re facing medical issues from a work-related injury, our firm is prepared to help you secure rightful compensation under maritime law through whatever avenue best addresses your needs.
