Offshore accidents and maritime incidents are unfortunately common in Houston, often due to the lack of proper safety procedures and equipment. Negligent employers, employees, third parties, and others frequently expose offshore and maritime workers to unnecessary risks, leading to injuries or even fatalities. As seamen, these workers are entitled to a safe working environment, which includes a seaworthy vessel and secure conditions. Failure on the part of companies to fulfill these obligations can result in additional damages and legal liabilities under the Jones Act.
Seeking Justice in Houston: Your Advantage as an Offshore Worker
Being an offshore worker based in or from Texas comes with a distinct advantage when it comes to seeking legal action and holding employers accountable. You have the advantage of pursuing your case in the familiar jurisdictions of the businesses you work for. This is in stark contrast to the challenges faced when seeking justice in foreign countries with unfamiliar legal systems.
