I was injured and my business closed down due to an accident in 2016. Daniel Sheppard became my greatest asset. He hired professional experts for their views and opinions as well as conducting numerous depositions. Daniel is hard working and no nonsense when handling your case. Daniel keeps you informed on what's going on and what to expect. I'm from Louisiana and my case was in Texas. Daniel Sheppard worked alone side my other attorney Yuri Beck, and the both of them did a fantastic job representing me and settling my case. Daniel Sheppard of Morrow & Sheppard in Texas and Yuri Beck of Hunter & Beck in Louisiana are my lawyers for LIFE.

Nick Morrow and John Sheppard were the lead attorneys on my case to hold an apartment complex with inadequate security responsible for the death of my son. The two of them were focused and determined to represent me and my son's children with tenacity. As the case continued over time, it became apparent that we were not merely clients that were a means to a financial end to them but people who had experienced a life changing and devastating loss. They realized that as a result of our loss, there needed to be accountability that could only be obtained through legal actions. Throughout the legal process, Nick Morrow and John Sheppard were not only professional and transparent but also compassionate and empathetic as they lead us through the difficult and sometimes confusing legal maze. Every person in their office that was involved with our case exemplified an extension of the genuine concern that began with attorneys Morrow and Sheppard. I have and will continue to recommend this firm to individuals who find themselves in need of legal representation.

The legal team at Morrow and Shepherd worked hard to help me win my case where a motorist who caused the accident changed her story and lied about the accident. A previous attorney kept telling me that I would probably have to pay some of the medical costs out of my own pocket.Daniel, my attorney, assured me that he would it is best to make sure this did not happen and that he would fight to get me the best compensation possible. He was true to his word.I'm happy with their work, happy with the compensation and would definitely use them again.The Legal Assistant, Chris, was always professional, friendly and polite and a pleasure to work with.A big thanks to the team!Don

I was referred to Daniel Sheppard because of a car accident I had been in. I was very impressed with how he told me about the process of how things worked and the things to expect. He was very forth coming and always supportive. The experience was a positive one and ended on a great note! I highly recommend him.Elizabeth Varon

Before I engaged John Sheppard, I was concerned that I might lose my case. However, John came onboard, turned things around, and set me on a good course to win. He got up to speed quickly on the facts and determined exactly what we needed to do. He is great at strategy, filing discovery and other motions, and arguing before the court. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of my case. If you need legal help in a personal injury action, commercial law or whatever, hire him immediately! He is a pleasure to work with, will thoroughly explain all to you in a manner you can understand, and will get you the best possible outcome. A+++
I was seriously injured and they represented me and I was so happy with the outcome and would recommend them to any others seeking professional lawyers. They also set me up with the best doctors. My son and I have now put this lawsuit behind us thanks to Morrow & Sheppard.

Common Causes of Offshore Accidents

As our offshore injury lawyers know too well, working offshore can be dangerous, often because the large corporations who operate offshore seek to maximize profits at the expense of safety. The fatality rate for offshore workers is seven times higher than for all U.S. workers. Common causes of offshore accidents include:

  • Helicopter crashes

  • Basket transfer injuries

  • Crewboat accidents

  • Falls from height

  • Dropped objects

  • Explosions and fires

  • Chemical burns

  • Equipment pinches and severed arms and legs

  • Slip and falls

  • Illness and disease

  • Exposure to toxic fumes and chemicals

  • Lifting injuries

  • Crane and hoisting equipment injuries

  • Collisions with rig floor equipment

Types of Offshore Facilities

The kinds of facilities where offshore injuries occur include:

  • Compliant Towers –narrow, flexible towers and a piled foundation supporting a conventional deck for drilling and production operations.

  • Drillships –self-propelled floating rigs that look like ships. Capable of operating in deepwater and move around more quickly than semis. Station-keeping is usually accomplished by dynamic positioning.

  • Fixed Platforms – built on concrete and/or steel legs anchored directly onto the seabed, supporting a deck with space for drilling rigs, production facilities and crew quarters. Immobile and designed for long-term use.

  • Floating Production Systems – large ships equipped with processing facilities and moored to a location for a long period. These include FPSOs (floating production, storage, and offloading systems), FSO (floating storage and offloading systems), and FSU (floating storage units).

  • Inland Barges – these rigs are specially adapted for inland waters close to shore.

  • Jack-up Platforms – platforms that can be jacked up above the sea, and can be lowered like jacks. These platforms, used in relatively low depths, are designed to move from place to place, and then anchor themselves by deploying the jack-like legs.

  • Jack-up Rigs – Used for shallow water drilling, these have legs that penetrate into the seafloor and the hull jacks up and down the legs.

  • Platform Rigs – self-contained rigs that rest on fixed platforms. Used for field development drilling.

  • Seastars Platforms – mini-tension leg platforms.

  • Semi-submersibles – floating mobile offshore drilling units that have ballasted columns. Station-keeping is accomplished either by anchored mooring lines or dynamic positioning systems.

  • Semi-submersible Platforms – legs are buoyant and permit structure to float. Can be moved from place to place.

  • Spar Platforms—moored to the seabed with more conventional mooring lines.

  • Tender-Assist Rigs – monohull units that are moored next to a platform. The rig is installed onto the platform, but power, storage and other functions remain on the tender.

  • Tension-leg Platforms – consist of floating rigs tethered to the seabed in a manner that eliminates most vertical movement of the structure.
