Louisiana Offshore Injury Claims Lawyer
Many residents work offshore in New Orleans. Maritime attorney Tim Fields is the resource in employment and injury compensation for these workers.
Unlike other workplace accidents, offshore injuries are not covered by workers’ compensation. This means that the employee is not necessarily provided compensation for injuries suffered on the job, and any benefits provided may not be enough. The worker may sue the employer to recover those benefits. This is a detailed and unique process, requiring the skill and experience of a firm that is familiar with this area of law and routinely represents offshore workers.
