What Laws Apply to Offshore Workers Claims

Learn what laws apply to offshore workers claims from experienced Lafayette personal injury attorney, Bennett Boyd Anderson, Jr., of Anderson Blanda & Saltzman.


"Boyd Anderson: Hi, I'm Boyd Anderson, a personal injury attorney in Lafayette, Louisiana. Our firm handles Admiralty, Maritime, and Jones Act litigation together with auto accident and 18-wheeler litigation. We're frequently asked by offshore workers who are hurt in an accident, exactly what law applies to their claim.

Federal law called the Jones Act is quite complicated. An injured worker either on a vessel or on a floating platform can actually be categorized under multiple different federal laws.

It's very important to obtain an experienced personal injury attorney who has handled Jones Act, Admiralty, and Maritime claims, in order to determine whether you are due Jones Act benefits, longshoremen benefits, maintenance and cure benefits, outer-continental shelf benefits, or exactly what benefits you are due with respect to your accident. You are entitled to recover, if you are injured offshore, whether the accident was solely your fault or whether the accident was the fault of another.

Contact my phone Anderson Blanda & Saltzman if you've been hurt offshore."

Client Reviews
Finding yourself in the middle of a personal injury case is not a pleasant experience. I could not have been more blessed than to have Mr. Boyd Anderson represent me in that difficult time. He treated me and my family with respect and earned my complete trust. Mr. Anderson is an extremely skilled attorney and did an exceptional job with my case. His support staff, Tammy and Donna, are also amazing to work with. They are very thorough and took care of every detail, so that I could concentrate on healing. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Boyd Anderson to family and friends. Angie T.
Boyd Anderson, along with his associates and staff always keep you in the know. He is very personable, offers great advise and he saw my suit to the end personally. It’s very rare that an attorney personally responds back to emails and calls. Not to mention the accolades, experience and expertise is top notch and really impressive. I would definitely recommend this firm to anybody if they are serious about winning. This firm gets the job done and exceeds expectations. Shantele J.
With the plethora of advertisements one sees nowdays, it's difficult to discern just who is best qualified to represent you if you need legal assistance. An overabundance of tv commercials does not necessarily point one in the correct direction. When I needed help, I choose Boyd Anderson and his firm. Best decision I ever made. Superlative service throughout the legal process...and I very much appreciated the prompt attention to details I suspect other firms would have probably overlooked. Anderson's team and experience made a huge difference in my exceptional group of professionals...for sure. Paulette P.
