New Orleans Maritime Accident Lawyer
Helping Victims Of Maritime Accidents
At Palazzo Law Firm, our New Orleans maritime accident lawyers fight to get full compensation for people who have been injured on or near the Gulf of Mexico, Lake Pontchartrain, the Mississippi River, and any other body of water. We represent victims of:
- Offshore drilling accidents
- Commercial and recreational boating accidents
- Commercial and recreational diving accidents
- Dock accidents
These cases can be complex, as they typically involve different laws than those that apply in other personal injury claims. Our 20-plus years of experience mean we are well-versed in the various maritime laws that apply in these accident cases, including the Jones Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA) and the Death on the High Seas Act (DOHSA). Whether you were hurt in an on-the-job accident or otherwise, our goal is to get you all the compensation you deserve.
Fighting For Maritime Workers And Others
Our lawyers represent:
- Oil rig workers
- Dock workers
- Anyone who has been hurt while earning a living on or around the water
- People who have been injured while enjoying the water for recreation, including tourists who come to Louisiana from all over the world
From our law office in Gretna, we represent maritime accident victims in the New Orleans metropolitan area, and throughout the Gulf South region.
When we say we fight to get full compensation, we mean it. We will not roll over because a case gets complicated or because an opponent pushes back. Our team includes former insurance defense counsel, so we know how our opponents work. We counter their strength with our own hard work and commitment to results. We build cases for trial and are ready to step into the courtroom to argue for full compensation in front of a judge and jury.
