Maritime law, also known as admiralty law, deals with the governing of marine affairs. If you are injured while working on a ship, oil rig, or shipyard, we have the experience to help you get the settlement you deserve.
We are experts in The Jones Act as well as The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Act and understand the ins and outs to help navigate you towards the best possible outcome of your case.
Employers in the maritime industry have the responsibility to provide safe work places and equipment. They are also required to cover certain costs for injuries and illness incurred during service on their vessel.
The goal of The Laborde Earles team is to seek justice for those who were injured while working under unsafe conditions. Any accident is equally devastating, whether it’s on the road or in the Gulf, but there are important legal differences. Our lawyers have decades of experience with maritime law and workers compensation and if you have a possible maritime case you will want us on your side.
