Oil & Gas are a huge industry in Houston and surrounding areas. Additionally, being one of the largest port cities in the world makes us a transportation hub. As such, there are many maritime jobs in and around the Houston area from workers on ships to offshore refineries. There are a unique set of laws that govern injuries sustained while at sea and even in the docks that service sea vessels. If you have been injured at sea or as a dock worker, you should consult with an experienced maritime injury lawyer like Attorney Paul Moody.
Maritime laws are complex and having an experienced attorney represent your interest can be the difference in the amount of compensation you receive for your injuries. Maritime Accidents fall under the Jones Act and understanding how it works can help you get what you need to recover from your injuries.
