Representing Clients With Maritime Injuries

Working out on the water can be a challenging occupation. From unseaworthiness claims to unruly weather conditions, maritime injuries can be devastating.

At the Houston firm of Law Offices of Willie D. Powells III and Associates PLLC, we are prepared to represent clients injured at sea. If you were injured or you have lost a loved one, it is crucial that you contact our office to discuss your case. We can provide the honest answers and strong representation you need.

The Jones Act And Longshore And Harbor Workers' Compensation Act

Maritime workers face a job that is just as risky as it is rewarding. Even an experienced seaman will admit that few factors are actually in his control. It is the goal of our firm to fully investigate the accident and provide clear, effective legal guidance geared toward maximizing the monetary compensation you recover through a personal injury claim.

Cases typically center on factors such as:

  • Unseaworthy vessels
  • Negligent or incomplete training
  • Failure to maintain vessels
  • Failure to provide clear warnings about unsafe areas around the vessel

Whether you are an offshore maritime worker, a dock worker, a longshoreman, a deckhand, a dry dock worker or the surviving family of a maritime worker who was involved in a fatal accident, we encourage you to call a lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner an attorney can begin investigating your case, the better chance you have at a strong case strategy.
