The LeadersIn Maritime Law

Hiring an Offshore Injury Lawyer

You'll know when you've found the right offshore injury lawyer. When that time comes, trust yourself and make the good decision you know you must. Until then, ask yourself these questions and consider the answers very carefully.

Do I want an attorney who will settle my case quickly?

That depends. Everyone hopes to get quick resolution to their case, but if settling quickly means compromising and settling for less than you deserve, the answer should be "no."

Sometimes a settlement outside of the courtroom is possible, but until you've won all the compensation you deserve, you'll need a team that is willing to try your case.

How much experience should my maritime attorney have?

Your attorney should have experience. But what's most important isn't the number of years, or even the number of cases, but a track record of winning results. At Arnold & Itkin LLP, we have successfully represented clients in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits against very large companies with well-funded and very competent legal defense teams. We are not intimidated by big companies or their legal teams. In fact, we have been able to recover billions of dollars for clients in verdicts and settlements. These results speak for themselves. We have the resources and know-how to handle our clients' offshore injury cases while seeking full compensation.

Are the offshore injury lawyers at your firm efficient?

Just because a firm is big, doesn't mean they're the best.

Some law firms are so large that their many-layered organizational structures are an impediment to efficient practice. There is no costly pyramid structure at our firm. We are lean and mean. To counter the structural bloat of our opponents who often have three associates for each partner, we rely on creativity, efficiency, and hard work.

Our experience has taught our team what is important at trial and what can be safely discarded. We limit document discovery to the bare essentials. For most depositions and other case related events, we send one attorney and one attorney alone to handle the matter. We know the difference between what we need and what is simply a waste.

Is your team talented?

We take tremendous pride in the talent of our offshore injury lawyers and our support staff. Our lawyers have typically clerked for prestigious federal judges or have worked for prestigious litigation firms. They have come to our firm because they want to be more than just a lawyer. They want to represent victims and ensure that they are taken care throughout the process, at trial, or otherwise.

We are proud to represent our clients on a contingency fee basis – meaning that if we are not able to successfully get you the results that you deserve, you don't have to pay a dime. With so much on the line, you only have something to gain by getting the representation of a knowledgeable maritime injury lawyer. We have secured hundreds of millions of dollars of compensation for injured maritime workers—and we could do the same for you. As we are experienced in all areas of maritime, personal injury, and workers' compensation law, you can be confident that you are receiving skilled and knowledgeable counsel.

Our commitment and our experience in the field of maritime injury claims make us a force to reckon with inside and outside of the courtroom. Our track record of success proves that we can make a difference for our clients when they need it most. If you are interested in learning more about your legal rights as a seaman, harbor worker, longshoreman, or any type of maritime worker, feel free to call our law office for a free consultation. We will be happy to answer your questions and address your concerns in order to get you started in the right direction.
