Maritime Lawyer News Blog

The Maritime Lawyer News Blog was created in 2010 for a renowned Houston maritime lawyer who specializes in offshore injuries and The Jones Act. Maritime workers who are injured in the course and scope of their work aboard a floating vessel are protected under a federal law known as the Jones Act. Whether the worker is a deckhand or the captain of a vessel, this protection grants the worker legal recourse to recover compensation when an accidental injury occurs through the negligence of another. The blog publishes legal cases, current regulations and up to date maritime accidents from across the United States. The blog contains some of the most comprehensive stories that involve the BP oil spill and lawsuits surrounding the Deepwater Horizon disaster that occurred on April, 20 2010 .
