As Edinburg wrongful death attorneys, we take care to provide families with support and guidance after losing parents, children, spouses, and other loved ones in industrial accidents, offshore disasters, truck accidents, and more. We fight to make sure at-fault parties pay for their carelessness, wrongdoing, and willingness to put profits over all else.

Offshore Injury Lawyers Serving Edinburg & Surrounding Areas

Facing danger is almost inevitable when working offshore. While the job comes with inherent risks, this does not make offshore accidents acceptable. Companies have a duty to protect their employees, especially given the well-known hazards of offshore work. Accidents in this field are preventable, making it crucial to hold employers accountable.

Common types of offshore accidents include:

  • Diving accidents
  • Barge accidents 
  • Dredging accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Explosions and fires
  • Vessel collisions

When an offshore worker sustains injuries from such accidents, establishing liability is crucial. At Arnold & Itkin, we are dedicated to investigating the incident and proving the injuries could have been prevented. We believe no one should live with the financial uncertainty caused by offshore injuries and are committed to ensuring they don’t have to. 

Our mission is to be the advocates that injured offshore workers deserve.

How the Jones Act Helps Edinburg Offshore Workers

For years, offshore workers were at the mercy of their employers when it came to safety. While maritime law required vessel owners to pay for the medical bills and cost of living associated with an injury, they only had to pay until a worker was as recovered as possible. This was known as maintenance and cure.  Then, in 1920, the Merchant Marine Act was passed. Referred to as the Jones Act, this law enables injured offshore workers to pursue their employer for the full scope of their financial damages. In other words, this law enables workers to pursue compensation that they need.

Damages that can be recovered under the Jones Act include:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Cost of future medical care
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of consortium

What Is a Jones Act Vessel?

A Jones Act vessel, as defined by the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, must meet specific criteria to operate in U.S. waters. First, it must be owned by U.S. citizens or companies, ensuring that control remains within the country's jurisdiction. Additionally, the vessel must be registered under the U.S. flag and hold a Certificate of Documentation from the U.S. Coast Guard, signifying its compliance with national regulations. Furthermore, to qualify as a Jones Act vessel, it must be constructed in the United States. The vessel must be operated by U.S. citizens or companies, guaranteeing that its activities are conducted in accordance with U.S. laws and regulations. These requirements are designed to uphold the integrity of maritime commerce within U.S. ports, safeguard national interests, and foster economic growth. 

Common Jones Act vessels include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Oil rigs
  • Shipping vessels
  • Barges
  • Dredges
  • Tugboats
  • Fishing boats

Common Questions

  • How Much Does Hiring an Edinburg Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

    Our Edinburg personal injury firm operates on something known as contingency fees. This means that we cover all the costs of a case, so clients don’t have to worry about them as we work to obtain their recovery. After your claim is completed, we’ll only collect a fee if we’ve obtained results for you. Doing this makes the process less financially stressful for our clients and ensures that everyone can afford our services.
  • Do I Have a Time Limit to File a Personal Injury Claim in Edinburg, TX?

    Yes, all personal injury claims have a limit of two years from the date of injury in Texas. If you’ve recently been in an accident, don’t delay calling Arnold & Itkin because you believe you have time. The sooner you call us for help, the sooner we can get to work making sure that we have the time needed to handle your claim properly. If you’re approaching the limit of your claim, don’t hesitate to call us as soon as possible and we’ll get the process started.
  • Why Should I Hire a Firm That Has Trial Experience?

    Hiring a firm that has trial experience means that you’ll have help from a team who isn’t afraid to demand the results that you deserve. Many law firms rarely handle claims inside of the courtroom. Arnold & Itkin has experience with earning the results clients deserve through jury verdicts. In fact, we recently secured an $8 billion verdict from a large pharmaceutical company. While we’ll always work to settle a case before it goes to trial, working with us shows the other side that you have help from a firm who won’t except low offers.
