Hispanic Maritime Accidents Attorney

Maritime accidents can be catastrophic due to the dangers that dock workers and rig workers face at sea and in the Houston Ship Channel.

Maritime accidents are covered by the Jones Act.  Maritime workers are exposed to a lot of risks and very dangerous conditions on platforms and rigs.   Among some of these risks are falls, crush injuries, burns from fires, and amputations.  The attorneys at Javier Marcos & Associates will review to determine if compensation to sailors is available for those who have been harmed.  The accident could occur because of negligence on the part of the craft’s owner, the captain, the crew or because of defective equipment and the very dangerous conditions at work under which these brave, hard working men and women work on a daily basis.

What is a maritime accident?

Maritime accidents don't only happen at sea. You have suffered a maritime accident if it happened:

  • At sea.
  • At loading terminals.
  • At a dock.
  • On a ship.
  • On an petroleum platform rig.
  • On a land rig.

The laws that protect workers on land don’t apply.

That’s why it’s necessary to turn to maritime laws to receive the compensation you deserve for your accident.

Maritime Laws include the “Jones Act” and the “Longshoreman’s and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act”, amongst others.  There are deadlines associated with a Maritime claim so do not delay — call the Maritime Injury Attorneys at Javier Marcos and Associates today.

Unfortunately, the insurance companies and their attorneys work harder to dodge or minimize liability.  Get Attorney Javier Marcos on your side.  He is an experienced commercial truck accident lawyer who will work tirelessly to get the compensation you deserve.

The Jones Act

  • Is a law that protects the safety and rights of sailors and workers that have suffered an accident at sea, on a ship or on a petroleum platform rig.
  • It covers individuals who have had accidents on ships or on a petroleum platform rig or land rigs.
  • It’s important to prove that you’re accident occurred during work out at sea and that the company that hired you is responsible for your accident.

Benefits of the Jones Act

  • Covers medical costs.
  • Pays you in disability cases.
  • Compensation for financial support and healing the person.
  • Reduced income or potentially reduce income.
  • Covers losses or expenses.
  • Compensation for financial support allows the maritime worker to receive money he or she will need to live while he or she is unable to return to work.  While compensation for healing refers to the money spent by an individual for the injuries caused by the accident.
  • Mariners and workers that do not apply for the Jones Act can, in some instances, apply for the Longshoreman’s and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act.
  • The difference is that with the Longshoreman’s and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act you don’t receive compensation for financial support and for healing the person.

Longshoreman’s and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act

  • Is a law that protects mariners and workers that have suffered accidents at sea, at loading terminals, on a dock, on a ship, on a petroleum platform or on a land rig.
  • A difference from the Jones Act is that this law doesn’t entitle you to compensation for financial support and the person’s healing.  It covers all mariners and workers that work on the sea and offer services on land.

Benefits of the Longshoreman’s and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act

  • Covers medical costs.
  • Pays in case of Disability.
  • Reduced income or potentially reduced income.
  • Covers Losses and expenses.
