Equipped To Handle Offshore Injury Claims

Are you an offshore employee who was injured while working on a rig, platform, tugboat, offshore drilling rig or other type of maritime vessel? Rather than seeking compensation for your losses through the Texas workers’ compensation system, you can seek “maintenance and cure” through the Jones Act. Jones Act claims are technical and complex. I am attorney Manuel Gonzales, and I meet these complexities head-on, fighting for the money you deserve.

If you sustained an oil rig and platform worker injury, you need an admiralty and maritime lawyer who can fight the insurance company for the money you deserve. Call my Houston law firm, Manuel Gonzales, PC, today at 866-517-1689 to schedule your free initial consultation.

Get The Compensation You Deserve For Your Offshore Injury

At Manuel Gonzales, PC, I represent injured offshore employees and their family members. If you are a seaman, longshoreman, harbor worker or shipyard worker who has sustained an on-the-job injury, you are entitled to certain rights and benefits. These rights and benefits fall under an area of law called admiralty and maritime law.

The Jones Act is part of these laws and regulates how much money you are entitled to receive. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, living expenses, mortgage and utility bills, food and transportation. I provide steadfast legal representation to seamen, tanker crews, dock workers, shipbuilders, ship breakers and other offshore workers who have sustained injuries while working aboard the following:

  • Barges
  • Boats
  • Jack-up rigs
  • Mobile offshore drilling rigs
  • Oil platforms
  • Oil rigs
  • Semisubmersible rigs
  • Tankers
  • Trawlers
  • Tugboats
  • Vessels

Injuries sustained while working offshore can be serious and life-altering. Talk to me today for help with injuries involving any of the following areas:

  • Head
  • Brain
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Spinal cord
  • Burns

Additionally, I handle death claims arising from fatal offshore accidents.
