Opelousas Offshore Injury Lawyers
Many of our friends and family in the community make their living working offshore in the Gulf Coast area. Numerous personal injury cases handled by MMRB&H are from work-related accidents offshore and around the Gulf region, which is why maritime law has become such a focus for our firm.
Offshore injuries, or even injuries that occur on docks or other shipping areas, can be very complicated as they involve federal laws requiring trial lawyers who are knowledgeable about maritime law. Years of experience in maritime law will give your attorney the necessary edge to best determine the exact statutes/laws that protect your rights to work in a safe environment. Your employer and business owner are responsible for ensuring you have trustworthy equipment and safe working conditions.
There are many details to a case that can show negligence if you get injured offshore or out on the water. At MMRB&H, we have the technical knowledge about offshore and maritime environments, including different types of vessels and drilling platform equipment, an understanding of offshore rigs, employment practices, and environmental hazards that would be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Many of our neighbors, friends and family who make up our local community make their living in the offshore or maritime-related industries, and we are passionate about protecting the rights of our community.
