Houston Texas Shore Side Maritime Injury Lawyer

Ports and Harbors are dangerous work environments and many workers are injured in accidents. If you have suffered a back injury, neck injury, broken bones or another injury while loading, unloading, building, and maintaining a ship at harbor, you may be entitled to benefits under the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act. You may also be eligible for what is known as a "third-party" claim if someone other than your employer or a co-worker is responsible for your injury.

Harold Eisenman P.C. , a Houston lawyer with more than 36 years of handling shore-side maritime injury cases on the western Gulf coast. I offer a free consultation to help injured harbor workers and longshoremen obtain the full amount of compensation to which they are entitled.

Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation benefits are limited, and do not include compensation for damages such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and punitive damages. However, if your injuries were caused by a third party, an experienced attorney can help you collect the full measure of compensation from the negligent party.

Examples of third parties may include:

  • A contractor or employee of a different company who injures you.
  • An injury caused by a fork lift operator.
  • Someone responsible for ramps, gangways, steps or other facilities connecting a ship to a dock.
  • A manufacturer of equipment used on the dock or on the ship.

To preserve your right to full compensation, it's important to consult an experienced maritime lawyer as soon as possible after you are injured. Sometimes hiring a lawyer needs to be confidential for a variety of reasons which are best explained in a private consultation with a lawyer.

It's important to consult a personal injury attorney who is experienced in handling maritime cases. If your third party claim is not handled correctly, you could end up waiving your right to future compensation under the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, possibly costing you thousands of dollars and future medical care.

Consultations are always free.
Contact maritime lawyer Harold Eisenman P.C. to discuss your case. All of the work we do is on contingency. This means Mr. Eisenman advances all costs of preparing your case and only charges a fee (a percentage of the recovery) when the case is successfully concluded. If there is no recovery, there is no fee.
