Our success and ability to maximize our clients' recoveries through settlement and trial are the reasons that offshore workers who were injured in some of the most tragic workplace disasters in recent history, including the tragic BP Deepwater Horizon Explosion, the BP Texas City Explosion, and the International Paper Explosion, turned to Fitts Zehl for help. By preparing the cases for trial and refusing to accept BP's initial settlement offers, our maritime lawyers were able to successfully resolve all of our claims against BP and Transocean less than 18 months after the tragic explosion.

Whether it's a case filed in Texas state court or Louisiana federal court, our lawyers prepare every case for trial, devoting whatever resources are necessary to ensuring that our clients are fully compensated for their injuries and damages so that they---and their families---can focus on their futures, without worrying about how they're going to pay for it.

It is critical, after an offshore accident, that you fully understand your rights under laws like the Jones Act, the Longshoremen and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) and general maritime law. Our maritime injury attorneys will explain your rights, ensure that your company is providing you with all the benefits that you're legally entitled to receive under the law, and arrange for you to receive the best medical treatment possible, all while investigating and preparing your case for trial.
