Injured Seamen

Have You Been Injured at Sea?

Injuries at sea can occur on a number of different vessels, including tugboats, barges, dredging vessels, dive boats, and cruise ships.  As an injured seaman, your rights and opportunities to recover monetary compensation under the Jones Act and other maritime laws may be much different than those in any other type of injury case.

Attorneys at Doyle Raizner have handled numerous maritime law cases originating in international and foreign waters, the Gulf Coast or elsewhere, on behalf of those seriously injured at sea.
