Maritime & Offshore Injuries

Austin Maritime & Offshore Injury Lawyer

From the seas to the shore, The Daspit Law Firm is here to protect you.

To the untrained eye, seeing a ship, a port, or famous seaside terminal is just a visual representation of the marine world. Individuals involved in the maritime industry, however, know the ins and outs of the buzzing activity - and dangerous hazards - that occur in these places of business. Without hardworking seafarers who work day in and day out, there would be no shipping industry. It is their daily work that keeps many other people employed in other industries around the world, including financiers, energy investors, and manufacturers.

If you were injured in a maritime or offshore accident, our Austin personal injury lawyer is here to help you. At The Daspit Law Firm, we have a special appreciation for individuals who are employed in one of the most crucial professions to our society. We understand that ports, marine platforms, and shipyards are bustling centers of production, and as a result, accidents may happen anytime. If someone's negligence of carelessness directly caused your accident, however, you may be in a position to file a claim for compensation. We stand ready to advocate fiercely on your behalf to make certain that you receive the maximum benefits for your damages.

Your Rights Under Maritime Laws

No industry can operate safely if it disregards or neglects the law, especially the maritime and offshore industry. Workers in the shipping profession must adhere to numerous national, regional, and international rules. Failing to abide by these regulations that have been put into place to protect workers could result in catastrophic, or in some cases, fatal injuries.

Our experienced Austin personal injury attorney has an in-depth understanding of maritime laws and how they pertain to offshore accidents, including the following:

  • Admiralty Law
  • Death on the High Seas Act
  • General Maritime Law
  • The Jones Act
  • Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act

Mariners, officers, crew members, and engineers will often be surrounded by heavy machinery used to build ships and conduct other business. Oftentimes, maritime operations continue into the night. Working around dangerous and toxic materials can be dangerous enough as is, but working under extreme conditions could cause a minor mistake to escalate into a devastating accident during complex, logistical procedures.

Call The Daspit Law Firm for World-Class Service

As a hardworking individual, you make the maritime industry flow and you contribute daily to the success of many other industries around the globe. It is only fitting that you deserve an attorney who can offer you world-class legal counsel at a time when you need it most.
