Dedicated Legal Help for Injured Maritime Workers and Coastal Business Owners
Our dedicated lawyers have handled and tried many cases involving maritime injuries suffered in Gulf Coast waters, on other commercial waterways and inland. We are prepared to evaluate your case involving injuries or damage suffered:
- While working on a barge, tugboat, dredge vessel or other ship or boat on the Mississippi River or the Tennessee-Tombigbee (Tenn-Tom) waterway
- At work aboard ship or on shore in a Gulf Coast or inland port in Mississippi, such as the Port of Pascagoula, Port of Biloxi, Port of Vicksburg, Port of Natchez, Gulfport or others
- As a Mississippi business owner subjected to major property damage and business interruption because of an oil spill, hurricane or other catastrophic event
Among our multimillion-dollar recoveries in serious maritime injury cases, we represented a Mississippi resident who suffered a life-changing back injury in a helicopter accident. When being transported back to shore from an offshore oil platform, Melvin Pace and other crewmen were victimized by a helicopter fire and crash. Finding Houston Helicopters negligent in events surrounding the Gulf of Mexico crash, a Texas jury awarded Mr. Pace $2.6 million.
According to the Mississippi Department of Transportation, ports throughout the state contribute well over $1 billion to the state’s economy and account for more than 30,000 direct and indirect jobs. What happened to you matters to us at Doyle Raizner, and we are pleased to offer an honest, free case evaluation and representation on a full contingency basis — so that you do not have to worry about added financial risk.
