Louisiana and Gulf Coast Maritime Attorneys

If you have been injured at sea while working on an oil rig or other offshore platform, you may be entitled to compensation under the Outer Continental Shelf Act. This and other admiralty laws protect the rights of injured seamen and maritime workers, while holding employers liable for their negligence if an employee suffers a personal injury or wrongful death. Serving Louisiana and Gulf Coast injury victims, our maritime attorneys can help you obtain fair compensation for your suffering. Over the course of more than four decades, The Young Firm has recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients. We can help you, too; contact our maritime attorneys to schedule a free consultation.

Outer Continental Shelf Act Claims

The Outer Continental Shelf Act, administered through the Office of Workers' Compensation Program, provides injured workers with compensation for such losses and expenses as lost wages and medical bills. It affords oil rig and other offshore workers the right to sue employers for medical expenses (both past and future), lost wages, diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering.

In cases involving the death on an employee, surviving family members may recoup funeral expenses and will receive a regular check for half of the deceased's weekly wage. Our maritime attorneys have successfully resolved many Death on the High Seas Act and wrongful death claims.
