Fort Worth Maritime Lawyers
Our Offshore Injury Lawyers Have Recovered Billions by Taking on Large Companies
Maritime workers know what it’s like to work hard. Besides having a physically and mentally demanding job, they also face some of the most dangerous working conditions possible. That’s why they deserve answers after a preventable accident injures them. Since maritime work is known to be dangerous, offshore employers have a legal obligation to protect their workers from preventable injuries. When an accident does hurt a worker, they deserve compensation for medical bills, lost wages, the cost of future care, and any other expense triggered by their accident.
Unfortunately, offshore employers and vessel owners don’t always do what’s right for injured workers. Instead, they try to get away with low settlement offers or—in the worst instances—not doing anything at all to help their people. That’s where our Fort Worth maritime lawyers come in. We’re ready to use laws like the Jones Act, DOHSA, and LHWCA to make sure lawyers aren’t just obeying the law. We fight to make sure they’re treating injured workers right. No matter what.

Maritime Law FAQ
What Workers Qualifies for the Jones Act?
The Jones Act applies to workers injured on American vessels by an accident caused by negligence. Created in the 1920s, the law is crucial for workers who need to recover the full extent of losses caused by an accident. If you’re not certain if you qualify for the Jones Act, a consultation with our Fort Worth maritime lawyers is free, confidential, and will help you decide what to do next.
What’s the LHWCA?
In simplest terms, the LHWCA is a law that is like the Jones Act. However, it applies to harbor workers. It makes recovering from an accident easier for workers who work in support of offshore vessels. Importantly, a wide range of people qualify to use this law, so calling a law firm to discover if you can use it is in your best interest.
What Damages Can a Fort Worth Maritime Law Firm Recover?
Our firm focuses on recovering as much as clients need to move forward to an accident. This could mean demanding full compensation for the cost of a person’s medical bills, making sure they have money to pay for future care, and recovering all past and future wages their injuries caused them to lose. Additionally, we often seek compensation for physical and emotional suffering to make sure justice is fully served and that the other side is held accountable for its negligence.
What Is a Catastrophic Maritime Injury?
A catastrophic injury is one that causes a permanent change the quality of the rest of a person’s life. For example, serious injuries often cause a person to lose mobility or experience pain for as long as they're alive. Examples of catastrophic offshore injuries include spinal cord injuries (paralysis), traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), and burn injuries.
These serious injuries created complicated cases because they require an attorney who will seek compensation that a person requires for the entire scope of their injuries. At Arnold & Itkin LLP, we always focus on demanding compensation for what clients have already been through as well as the payment they need to live as comfortably as possible moving forward.
