Offshore & Maritime Accidents
Morrow & Sheppard are privileged to assist injured offshore workers and crewmen in a variety of maritime cases.
Many workers who suffer offshore and maritime personal injuries are entitled to bring claims under the Jones Act. Others may have claims under general maritime law and for maintenance and cure. In the tragic event of a death, a surviving family member may have a claim under the Death on the High Seas Act.
This website provides basic information concerning these claims. But the legal, factual, and jurisdictional issues involved in pursuing offshore and maritime injury claims are complex. If you or a loved one has been injured offshore, it is important that you consult with an attorney as quickly as possible to make sure your legal rights are protected.
