" Don't be a victim twice by accepting less than the full value for your case. I opened Murphy Law Firm LLC to help injured offshore and maritime accident victims obtain full compensation for their injuries." ∙ Attorney Peyton Murphy ∙ Contact Murphy Law Firm
Our Baton Rouge offshore accident lawyers have a wealth of experience representing injured maritime and offshore accident victims throughout Louisiana. We focus on providing aggressive legal representation personally tailored to each client's individual needs.
Offshore and Maritime Work-Related Accident Injuries
Offshore drilling, diving, commercial fishing and hauling cargo through international waters all present serious risks to maritime workers. We represent deckhands, seamen, captains, pilots, tankermen, mates, cooks, and other crew members in Jones Act, third-party liability claims and Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act claims.
Types of Maritime and Offshore Workers
We represent a wide range of employees working on or near the water, including:
- Seaman — a crew member of a qualifying "vessel" or someone assigned to a fleet of vessels, whose work contributes to the function of the vessel
- Longshoreman — a port worker assigned to loading and unloading cargo from ships
- Harbor workers — a worker in or around the harbor directly engaged in maritime activities, including building ships, repairing ships, and operating cranes and forklifts
- Platform/oil rig workers
