The Alabama Maritime Lawyers at Zehl & Associates
Our Alabama Maritime Lawyers have successfully represented hundreds of injured offshore workers against some of the largest oil and gas and maritime companies in the country. But we don’t just win, we set records.
In the past 5 years alone our Jones Act and Maritime Attorneys have won over $1 Billion for injured workers and their families and repeatedly recovered the largest verdicts and settlements in our opponent’s corporate histories. Several months ago, for example, we won over $3.2 Million on behalf of a A/B Seaman who suffered neck and lower back injuries when he was dropped from a personnel basket during an offshore crew transfer. Before trial, the defendant refused to offer our client more than $800,000 to settle the case.
We’ve been able to achieve these results because, unlike many other law firms, we won’t hesitate to turn down an inadequate settlement offer and take your case to trial (where our lawyers remain undefeated) to ensure that you’re fully compensated for your injuries and damages.

Our Alabama Jones Act Lawyers understand the importance of winning and will devote whatever time and resources necessary to ensuring that you and your family receive the maximum compensation possible.
While the Alabama Coast is an extremely active area, hosting everything from commercial fishing to oil and gas production, many inland cities including Tuscaloosa, Montgomery, and Columbia, play host to Alabama’s numerous river ports. Whether you work along Alabama’s gulf coast or travel through the Alabama, Tombigbee, or Chattahoochee Rivers, the dangerous nature of maritime work is always present. The most common causes of offshore injuries to maritime workers include:
- Unseaworthiness of the Vessel
- Poorly-maintained Safety Equipment Onboard the Vessel
- Crewmembers’ Failure to Follow Safety Procedures
- Inadequate Safety Procedures
- Poorly-Trained Crew
