Houston Maritime Accident Attorney
Offshore workers have specific laws that guarantee their rights, the molina law firm can help you.
The Houston Ship Channel is one of the largest ports in the United States. In addition, the petrochemical industry is a huge part of the Houston landscape as well as off-shore rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. Maritime injuries occur more often in Houston compared to other parts of the U.S. Admiralty law governs accidents that occur on navigable rivers, oceans, and other waterways including harbors and docks. If you have been injured in any of these areas due to negligence, then you could have a case under the Jones Act. Before you settle your injury claim with your company, please consider contacting an experienced maritime personal injury lawyer to discuss your options.
