If you get injured while working offshore, exactly which laws apply can get very complicated very rapidly. Which of the many laws on point govern your particular injuries and your potential remedies depends entirely on what your exact job was, where you exactly were when injured and exactly what you were doing at work at the time of your accident. Due to these complex issues, it is vitally important that you get the advice of a veteran attorney with experience handling many different types of legal claims connected to offshore injuries along the Gulf Coast.
- Injuries on Offshore oil rigs: We at Carabin Shaw frequently represent gas and oil industry workers who have gotten killed or been injured while working servicing drilling rigs, on supply boats, on crew boats, on drilling rigs (semisubmersible or jack-up type rigs), drilling ships or lay barges whose crews work on and service drilling rigs. We are also ready to handle non-vessel injuries. This would include those that happen while the workers are on a fixed platform.
- Seamen injuries: We protect the rights of seamen workers who get injured while working on a barge, a boat, on a cargo ship or other vessel. We have also represented too many families of seafarers who have been killed on the job in wrongful death suits, usually based upon general maritime law, under the Jones Act, under the provisions of the Death on the High Seas Act and under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act.
- Pleasure boat accidents: Texas state agencies and the U.S. Coast Guard establish the rules for safe boating. However, all too many recreational boaters and those operating personal watercraft aren’t aware that they are covered by the same rules and laws as ocean-going vessels. Filing an injury claim due to a boating collision with a negligent watercraft or boat operator is usually complicated and may well involve the technical and highly specialized interpretation of the admiralty laws.
For each and any of these types of deaths and injuries, Carabin Shaw has the necessary resources and experience to represent you effectively. We frequently work with highly educated and qualified doctors, marine safety investigators, naval experts, injury experts, marine experts, physical capacities experts, economists and rehabilitation experts to give our clients the best chance to get a maximum recovery.Are you in Beaumont?
