The Ammons Law Firm LLP has a history of success in pursuing multi-million dollar recoveries for complex maritime accidents. From rig workers to commercial fishermen, we represent injured maritime workers and fight for the fair compensation they deserve.
Workers in the maritime and offshore industries face a number of on-the-job hazards every day. Unfortunately, these inherent workplace accident risks mean that a significant number of maritime workers are injured or killed every year. With numerous laws and regulations in place to help protect workers, these accidents simply should not happen. However, when they do, injured workers and the surviving family members of those killed in maritime accidents may take legal action against the liable party.
At The Ammons Law Firm LLP, we help injured seamen, offshore drilling rig employees, port workers, cargo loaders and unloaders, and all other maritime workers in a variety of personal injury matters. With over a century of combined experience, our Houston maritime and offshore injury lawyers have the dedicated focus and understanding of this niche area of law needed to help you with your claim. We have recovered more than $1 billion for clients nationwide—find out how we can help you.
