Many people are not aware that workplace accidents that occur on offshore oil rigs or marine vessels are handled differently than other types of on-the-job accident claims. For this reason, it is vitally important that you contact experienced maritime lawyers if you or a loved one is injured while working offshore.

Frederick & Beckers offers experienced maritime lawyers who have in-depth knowledge of the specialized federal and state maritime laws, the Jones Act, Workers’ Compensation and various statutes that apply to offshore accident cases. Our personal injury attorneys will work closely with you to explain your rights and help ensure that you receive proper medical treatment and all of the compensation or damages that you deserve.

Over the years, our maritime lawyers have obtained many millions of dollars in compensation for clients involved in accidents that occurred in Louisiana state waters, the Gulf of Mexico and various foreign waters. We have successfully handled maritime accident cases including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Offshore Oil Rig Accidents
  • Tugboat & Barge Accidents
  • Fishing Vessel Accidents
  • Ferry & Water Taxi Accidents
  • Tanker & Cargo Ship Accidents
  • Cruise Ship Accidents
The fact is that obtaining compensation for accidents that involve maritime laws can be extremely difficult – and these cases are often beyond the capabilities of the average oilfield lawyer. At Frederick & Beckers, our experienced maritime lawyers will work diligently to ensure that your legal claim is handled as quickly and efficiently as possible to obtain justice for you and your family. If you or a loved one has been victimized in an offshore or maritime accident, we urge you to contact us today to learn more or schedule a consultation.
