Maritime Accidents in the Galveston
Unlike most accidents that occur on land, accidents that occur offshore or dockside may fall under a complex and unique set of federal maritime laws. There are several federal laws and doctrines that may apply to maritime accidents including:
- Merchant Marine Act of 1920 (more commonly known as the Jones Act)
- Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act
- Maintenance and Cure
- Longshore & Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act
- The Death on the High Seas Act
If you’ve been injured offshore, such as on a drilling platform, commercial vessel, oil rig, or even while at port, you may be able to pursue a claim for damages under federal maritime laws. The compensation you are able to receive may be impacted by the circumstances of your injuries and the maritime laws that apply to your case. Given the complexity of maritime laws and how they may intersect, it’s important that you consult with an experienced and knowledgeable Galveston maritime injury lawyer.
