Helping Offshore Workers Recover from Serious Accidents Across Texas & Nationwide

For hundreds of years, people have turned to the sea to make a living. As offshore industries developed, so did the laws that governed them. Many of these laws are still followed today. However, the United States has expanded maritime law to protect workers more by holding employers accountable for failing to prevent accidents that shouldn’t happen.

At Arnold & Itkin LLP, our Tyler maritime law lawyers are focused on helping workers after they’ve been injured during preventable accidents. Whether you’re a seaman who needs help with the Jones Act or are a longshore or harbor worker that has an LHWCA claim to file, we’re ready to fight on your behalf. We’ve recovered billions of dollars for clients and are ready to fight for the results that you deserve.

Relevant Maritime Laws for Workers & Their Families

There are two laws that are useful for injured workers in the offshore industry: The Jones Act and the Longshore & Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). Each law protects workers in different parts of the maritime industry by holding their employers accountable for unsafe work conditions.

Important United States maritime laws include:

While each of these laws are for different situations, they all mean one thing: employers are required to make sure their workers are safe. Injured seaman, longshoreman, and the families of workers killed while offshore can demand answers from the people who should’ve prevented their suffering.
