Baton Rouge Maritime Law Attorney — Dedicated to Serving Seamen

If you work on a vessel, oil rig or other commercial ship, the law provides special protections and rights to you as a seaman under the Jones Act. Our maritime and admiralty lawyers have extensive knowledge in this complex and unique area of the law. For more than 35 years, we have been recovering fair and full compensation for injured crew members and offshore workers.

However, you do not need to be a seaman to pursue compensation when an injury or illness occurs on the water. We also put our understanding of maritime law to work for passengers on cruise ships, motor boats and personal water craft who have a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

We represent clients who suffer injuries on many types of vessels, including:

  • Supply and crew boats
  • Cargo and shipping boats
  • Tugs, barges and tow boats
  • Offshore drilling vessels
  • Barges
  • Cruise ships
  • Motor boats
