US Lawyers With Extensive International Legal Experience
Among the most intimidating situations a person can face is a catastrophic event causing serious injury far from home. Sorting out legal options and finding a trustworthy personal injury attorney truly focused on your needs is difficult enough for a lifelong resident of the United States injured in the Houston area or a U.S. seaman hurt on the waters off the Texas Gulf Coast. If you were injured while working in another country or on foreign waters, or you are a citizen of another country injured in the U.S., your concerns are magnified.
At Doyle Raizner, the challenge of bringing serious personal injury cases into U.S. courts for resolution is one our attorneys have met and overcome many times. In fact, we embrace the complexity of these cases and strive to make the foreign familiar for our valued clients. Please contact us if you need counsel from an attorney willing to cross borders and able to navigate diverse legal systems.
Crossing Oceans and Borders to Meet Challenging Legal Issues Head-On
We have proven our ability to advocate for the full legal rights of:
- U.S. citizens and citizens of other countries injured overseas on holiday or during business travel
- Maritime workers and people in other occupations injured working for U.S. companies
- U.K. and other Non-U.S.-citizen travelers injured in the United States
Our efforts extend to chemical exposure claims against military contractors originating in Iraq and Afghanistan, claims on behalf of injured U.K. citizens that must be handled in the U.K. courts in collaboration with in-country solicitors, and other transnational matters. We understand the British legal system, the demands of workers on oil rigs and crew members on various types of ships, and the interplay between various legal systems in the realm of international personal injury claims.
Credentials and Case Experience That Justify Our Clients’ Confidence
Our law firm maintains a decidedly international practice, and our attorneys have the solid experience to continue building and expanding on this area of strength. Three members of our collaborative legal team — Mike Doyle, Jeff Raizner and Patrick Dennis — handled various forms of international litigation prior to our firm’s founding.
From oil field injuries in the Gulf of Mexico to serious injuries under a wide range of circumstances around the globe, our mission includes counseling potential clients with care and delivering legal counsel that address individual, long-term needs.
