As of January 2013, The Young Firm has decided to focus the practice on only serious maritime and offshore injury claims.
Over the last 20 years, The Young Firm has handled a variety of cases: serious injury claims of maritime workers as well as medical negligence victims, automobile accident victims, slip and fall victims, and other non-maritime related clients. However, more than 80% of the practice has been comprised of maritime and offshore claims and so the transition to a 100% maritime and offshore only practice will be a relatively seamless one.
The firm has decided to concentrate on maritime cases to:
Display commitment to those in the offshore industry. The maritime industry is one rife with hazards and injustices, and often conditions aboard vessels and rigs are made worse by the drive to produce more with less. Add to those already dangerous environments the threat of piracy, turbulent waters, and lack of accountability, and tragedies like the Black Elk Energy explosion (and others less publicized) become commonplace. The individuals in the maritime industry are often ignored by the media and other public officials, and average Americans know little of the unfair troubles that plague this particular community. Though others may not be aware of these troubles, The Young Firm is and commits to fighting these injustices by enforcing the legal obligations that offshore companies have to their employees.
