We help injured Houston offshore workers
Get the financial compensation you deserve
You're a worker on a ship or another vessel at sea, and you've been hurt on the job. You can't work. You're left with medical bills and other expenses. What are your rights? You may be eligible for compensation under a federal law called the Jones Act. Attorneys at Tracey & Fox in Houston can help you with your offshore worker injury claim.
The Jones Act is similar to workers' compensation laws. The difference is offshore workers who are injured must prove that they were hurt due to negligence by their employer or co-workers. That's why it's important to have a lawyer on your side who has successfully handled Jones Act claims.
The Jones Act allows injured offshore workers to seek compensation for expenses related to their injury. This includes medical expenses and a daily stipend to cover the food and shelter the worker would have received before the injury. The injured worker can also seek damages (financial compensation) for lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish and more.
