What types of maritime, offshore cases do you handle?

Don’t be pressured into not seeking legal representation. It’s your right.

The Texas coast and Gulf of Mexico are a maritime industry center made up of large and small companies that contribute a great deal to our economy. If you or a loved are involved in a maritime or offshore accident, don’t allow big companies to take advantage of you. Gomez Law Firm firmly advocates for maritime workers that are exposed to difficult and dangerous settings. Those include offshore workers, seamen, harbor employees, oil industry workers, and longshoremen. Contributing factors to offshore accidents include exhaustion, defective equipment, unsuitable working conditions, exposure to toxic substances and many other factors that can result in serious illness, cause injury or even death. In some cases, an illness may manifest itself years after an accident which leaves victims and their families with unknown burdens. Jorge L.

Maritime law is complicated.

Gomez Law Firm knows which Maritime Laws will work in your favor.

The most important consideration in pursuing an offshore injury case is gathering and documenting facts, identifying false statements given by those liable and understanding the various maritime laws that can work in your favor. For example, under the Jones Act, seamen are in a good position to file a claim for compensation. This law is more favorable to maritime workers than most other laws are to other workers.
