Cases we handle include, but are not limited to:
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 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 six decades.
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.
Work in the maritime industry can be dangerous. At Bohrer Brady LLC, our attorneys have six decades of combined experience helping maritime workers bring successful claims for injuries resulting from offshore accidents.
Personnel Transfer Accdent
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.
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 six decades of combined experience investigating maritime accidents and helping families obtain the compensation they need and deserve.
