Maritime Law

Maritime Accident Lawyer

Offshore Drilling Injury Attorney

Offshore drilling rig accidents, river boat accidents, and pleasure boat accidents can be dangerous. When someone is seriously injured in any maritime accident, talk to the maritime accident attorneys at Bohrer Brady LLC. We have a thorough understanding of maritime law and the rights of injured people.

If you or a loved one has been injured as an offshore worker, an inland river worker, or as a pleasure boater, our legal team has the skill and experience to represent you. Most of our clients come to us as referrals from former clients who know we have the specific legal knowledge required in maritime accident claims.

  • If two fishing boats collide, if a pleasure boat hits a sandbar and a passenger is hurt, or if a recreational boat accident causes an injury or wrongful death, you may have a claim under maritime law. Our attorneys can evaluate your boating accident case at no cost to you and recommend actions to take.
  • Offshore drilling rig accidents are covered by the Jones Act, a law that protects offshore workers who are injured because of unsafe work environments. Safety is a special concern in offshore situations, far from hospitals and trauma centers. We handle the full range of Jones Act and offshore accidents including accidents on jack-ups, semi-submersibles, lay barges, drill ships, and other floating vessels for roustabouts, floorhands, roughnecks, derrick hands, and all job positions.
  • Our maritime and offshore and inland river law attorneys handle inland river accidents involving deck hands, tankermen, galley hands and others who are injured while working on tankers, tug boats, barges, tow boats, fleet boats and line boats and other inland river vessels.

If you have suffered a maritime accident injury, or if a family member has died in a fatal accident, tell us about it. Our maritime claims lawyers can help you understand the laws and your rights. You do not have to face a big company alone

  • Boating Accident - If you were hurt in a boating accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Even pleasure boat operators must follow the navigational rules of the water and operate their boats safely.

  • Commercial Diving Accident - The work of commercial divers can be dangerous. When a commercial diver stays under water too long, the consequences can be severe. Repairs and installations made under water can be especially hazardous.

  • Commercial Fishing and Shrimping - Fish and shrimp are plentiful in the Gulf of Mexico. Commercial shrimping and fishing are dangerous industries and injuries and fatalities continue to occur frequently.

  • Drilling Rig Accidents - Bohrer Brady LLC extends our respect to those working in this dangerous field, our help to those injured, and our condolences to the families of those who have lost loved ones.

  • Drilling Rigs and Barges - When an injury-causing accident occurs on a drilling rig or drilling barge, talk to a personal injury attorney with experience helping workers injured in maritime accidents. At Bohrer Brady LLC, we have been helping injured maritime workers for more than twenty years.

  • Helicopter Accidents - Crew transfers from shore to a drilling rig often involve a helicopter. While it is an effective, quick way to manage personnel transfers, it can sometimes be dangerous. The lawyers at Bohrer Brady LLC help people who have been injured in helicopter accidents.

  • Jet Ski Accident - Personal watercraft (PWC) such as Jet Skis and Waverunners have enjoyed a surge in popularity in the Gulf region, a popularity which has lead to more crowded waterways and an increase in Jet Ski accidents.

  • Jones Act + Seaman’s Claims - Were your accident and injuries caused by your employer's negligence? Most workers are not permitted by law to sue their employer for negligence, but seamen have had that right since Congress passed the Merchant Marine Act (Jones Act) of 1920.

  • Maritime Accidents - Offshore drilling rig accidents, river boat accidents, and pleasure boat accidents can be dangerous. When someone is seriously injured in any maritime accident, talk to the maritime accident attorneys at Bohrer Brady LLC.

  • Offshore Boats - Getting crews and supplies to and from an offshore rig can be dangerous. If you have been injured in a crew boat accident or supply boat accident as a deckhand, crewmember or passenger, talk to lawyers experienced with offshore boating accidents—the attorneys at Bohrer Brady LLC.

  • Offshore Injuries - Work in the maritime industry can be dangerous. At Bohrer Brady LLC, our attorneys have more than twenty years of experience helping maritime workers bring successful claims for injuries resulting from offshore accidents.

  • Personnel Transfer Accident - Transfer of maritime workers from offshore installations to crew boats and docks is accomplished by various means, including helicopters, rope systems and personnel transfer baskets. Unfortunately, serious accidents can occur when standard practices, procedures and safety protocols are not followed.

  • River Accidents - When tugs, tows, and barges are hard at work on a river, accidents can happen. When those river boat and barge accidents cause injuries, you need to know your rights.

  • Wrongful Death / Death on the High Seas - When a loved one dies in a fatal accident, it is always hard on the family. When that accident is a sudden wrongful death, especially death offshore on the high seas, the circumstances can be difficult to understand. Our law firm has 31 years of experience investigating maritime accidents and helping families obtain the compensation they need and deserve.
