Wrongful Death Litigation

Louisiana Fatal Accident Attorneys

Some of the most dangerous occupations in the world are working aboard ships, oil rigs, fishing trawlers, ferries, tankers and other offshore vessels. Weather conditions, long hours and grueling work are only part of why this occupation is not for everyone. Unfortunately, family members of those who work on these vessels sometimes have to deal with a fatal accident that leaves their loved ones deceased.

At the law firm of Dodson & Hooks, APLC, our lawyers represent the families of maritime workers in the United States, the United Kingdom and across the globe, who have been killed in maritime law accidents. If you lost a loved one working offshore, we can protect your rights and help you pursue the compensation that you deserve.

Offshore Deaths Law Firm

If an offshore worker dies more than three nautical miles from shore, the family of that worker may be entitled to compensation under the Death on the High Seas Act, which provides rights to the spouse and family of dead seaman. The benefits under the Death on the High Seas Act may include lost support, including current and future earnings, loss of companionship, medical bills and funeral expenses.

Our firm has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. We have the resources and extensive legal knowledge to effectively represent families of those involved in fatal boat accidents across the world.
