Maritime & Offshore Injuries

Admiralty Law and Metairie Offshore Accident Attorney

Ship owners and companies that employ workers offshore bear responsibility for the safety of their seamen and workers. They also are obligated by the doctrine of maintenance and cure to provide free medical care and basic living expenses to injured seamen and other maritime or offshore workers.

Frischhertz Poulliard Frischhertz Impastato, LLC, provides experienced and aggressive legal representation to injured seamen and offshore workers in Louisiana. Our New Orleans maritime injury attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience working to obtain the compensation our clients deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, permanent injury, retraining, and pain and suffering.

Maritime Law and Jones Act Compensation

If you have been injured on a seagoing vessel or on an oil rig, the Jones Act allows you to make a claim for compensation if your injury was caused by the negligence of the owner, master or fellow crew members.
