The National Leader in Offshore Injury Cases

Fighting for the Rights of Seriously Injured Maritime Workers

Arnold & Itkin has made a name for ourselves in a variety of practice areas from trucking accidents to plant explosions. However, as natives to the Gulf region, we have always been committed to the health and well-being of our offshore workers.

That's why we've become the leading firm in maritime law.

Offshore employment is some of the most dangerous work in any industry. The Centers for Disease Control revealed in a study that offshore workers are 7 times more likely to die on the job than the average U.S. worker. Entire laws have been written to protect seamen and their families in the event of death or severe injury—that’s how commonplace it is. With increased drilling in the future, employment on oil rigs, large vessels, and other at-sea work sites will increase as well.

That’s reason for both celebration and concern. We celebrate the growth of the Gulf economy, and many of our clients found offshore work exhilarating and rewarding. At the same time, employers and companies are far too willing to risk their workers’ lives for the sake of short-term profit. We believe in taking care of our people—both our staff and our clients. That’s the best way to take care of each other, and we continue to do that by representing injured workers against the oil companies and vessel owners who needlessly endangered their lives and livelihoods.
