Offshore, Maritime and Recreational Boating Lawyers ~ Dan Robin, Jr.
The maritime industry and recreational use of Louisiana waters result in a multitude of maritime and offshore accidents each year. Louisiana supports one of the largest Maritime industries in the United States and many people are employed to work on and aboard vessels of various types in Louisiana. These vessel could include jack-up rigs, semi-submersible rigs, ships, tankers, various barges, river casino's, tug boats, shrimp boats, varied fishing boats, trollers, crew boats, utility boats, offshore support vessels, water taxies and even water cleanup vessels.
Offshore and maritime litigation involves some of the most intricate laws that any attorney can handle. At Dan Robin, Jr., we fight for the rights of those injured in both Louisiana territorial and the international waterways in the Gulf of Mexico and work to get the financial resources to recover and rebuild the lives at stake.
As offshore oil rig attorneys, our lawyers fight to obtain compensation for victims of oil rig accidents, petrochemical accidents, or any negligent event or construction accident in the marine, offshore or diving industries.
If you are employed in these industries and suffer an accident, you may have the right to claim compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs. If your injury was caused by the negligence of a boat or rig operator or even a third-party service company, you may also be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. We also represent anyone injured on drilling rigs, drilling ships, production platforms, barges, any kind of service and supply boat or transportation accidents involving helicopters or aircraft to the work field.
To get what you are entitled to, you need the help of a knowledgeable and experienced offshore and maritime attorney. Understanding the unique outlines of the Jones Act and the Long Shore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act can mean a greater recovery of damages that may otherwise be unavailable under most other bodies of law.
Also, often over looked are recreational boats and personal watercraft, such as Jet Skis and Ski Doos, as the popularity of recreational boating increases every year. Unfortunately, many times due to operator negligence, people in Louisiana are injured in recreational boating accidents. Louisiana state agencies and the Coast Guard outline the rules for safe boating and all watercraft operators in Louisiana are subject to the same laws and rules as ocean-going vessels and other commercial operators.
