Benefits and Third Party Claims in a Maritime Accident
Just as offshore oil platforms and drilling rigs must be safe, and ocean-going tanker and cargo ships must operate in safe and seaworthy condition, marine workers on inland vessels are also entitled to safe working conditions. Crews and workers are entitled to collect benefits for medical care, lost wages and other related expenses.
Inland marine injuries due to negligence by a third party, such as helicopter crashes on oil platforms at sea or vessel collisions on a river, may also result in claims and potential third party lawsuits against other individuals or companies. Maritime laws are be complex, requiring specialized help from a lawyer with personal injury experience. Our maritime injuries law firm represents people nationwide and elsewhere in the world who are injured on any inland waterway, including:
- Galveston Bay to Lake Houston
- Houston Ship Channel
- Port of Houston
- Brazos River
- Mississippi River
