Our Maritime Lawyers represent injured offshore workers throughout Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and the Gulf Coast

National Maritime Attorneys Focused on Obtaining the Maximum Recovery for our Clients

Our maritime lawyers have successfully represented hundreds of offshore workers in courts across the United States in some of the most serious accidents in recent history. It is because of our success, both in and out of the courtroom, that workers and their families continue to count on Fitts Zehl when they or a loved one are seriously injured either on or offshore.

From successfully representing 5 of the workers who were injured while working onboard the BP Deepwater Horizon when it tragically exploded in 2010 to representing workers injured during crew transfers or from slip and falls from dangerous conditions, our maritime lawyers have the resources and experience necessary to ensure that our clients are fully compensated for all their injuries, damages and losses.  

In the past 12 months alone, our maritime attorneys have recovered over $200 million in settlements and verdicts from some of the largest maritime companies in the country, including BP, Transocean, Ensco and Hercules.  We were able to do this because, unlike many other law firms, all of our maritime lawyers are trial attorneys, who are always prepared to go to trial and refuse to accept a settlement offer unless it fully compensates our clients for all their injuries, damages, and losses.  

Whether you were injured on a cargo ship, jack-up rig, or semi-submersible, the Jones Act lawyers at Fitts Zehl have the resources and experience necessary to ensure that you and your family can focus on the future, without worrying about how to pay for it.

After the BP Deepwater Horizon Explosion, the Injured Workers Turned to our Maritime Lawyers for Help

Having represented hundreds of injured offshore workers against the largest maritime and oil and gas companies in the world, our maritime attorneys understand what it takes to ensure that our clients receive the maximum recovery in the shortest possible time.  

That's why, when we're hired to represent you, we focus on two things: (1) that you are receiving the best medical treatment available, and (2) that you are fully compensated for ALL your injuries, damages and losses as quickly as possible.   

We do this by preparing every case for trial and refusing to accept settlement offers that don't fully compensate our clients for their injuries.  This approach has enabled us to resolve almost all of our cases, even the most complex, in less than 18 months.  

After the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster, for example, we quickly filed suit and began preparing all 5 of our clients' cases for trial.  Less than 18 months later, while most firms were just starting to evaluate their cases, our maritime lawyers reached a highly favorable settlement on behalf of all of our clients that not only exceeded their expectations, but ensured that they would never have to worry about how they would pay for their futures again.
