Alabama Maritime Injury Lawyer
Maritime Accident Attorney for Seamen Injured in Alabama Waters
Alabama and other Gulf Coast states have many of the busiest seaports in the nation. Thousands of commercial oil tankers, oil rig workers, transport vessel crew members and longshoremen earn their living on the vessels, platforms and docks that make up a significant part of the growing Alabama economy.
Vessels of every size and configuration, from small shrimp boats to mega-ton cargo vessels bound for international ports, are on the water and docks every day. Vessel owners have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of merchant mariners, fishing crews and oil rig operators. When an accident causes an injury or death, U.S. maritime law demands that the vessel owner provide medical care as well as cure and maintenance for the injury and financial losses that result.
We Represent Injured Seamen and Their Families in Port Cities Nationwide
If you are an oil worker, seaman, fisherman or longshoreman injured on a vessel, boat, dock or platform in Alabama waters, talk to an experienced Jones Act injury attorney at Doyle Raizner LLP. Based in Houston and Galveston, Texas, we understand Gulf Coast injuries and claims.

It is imperative to work with one of the nation’s most recognized maritime personal injury law firms.
