Were You Injured In A Maritime Accident?
Since 2016, our Baton Rouge maritime accident and injury lawyers at the Russell Law Firm, LLC have been protecting the rights of our Louisiana marine industry workers after they have been injured in accidents on docks, oil rigs, or at sea.
This is important because the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI) reports an estimated one in five jobs in the state is connected to the maritime industry, resulting in an employment income of more than $3.5 billion every year.
According to U.S. Department of Labor statistics, Louisiana leads the nation in maritime jobs in various positions, and is the top employer of captains, mates, pilots of water vessels, sailors, marine oilers, and ship engineers, and ranks second in the number of crane and tower operators and third in tank car, truck, and ship loaders.
Overall, the great state of Louisiana is home to five of the top 15 largest ports in the country, and accounts for 13% of all maritime jobs in the U.S.
If you work in the maritime industry, you know how important your position is to not just your family’s livelihood, but that of our state, and our country.
Unfortunately, when maritime workers are injured in an accident caused by negligence, the insurance companies work quickly to diminish their importance through lowball settlement offers and even outright claim denials. When this happens, all the hard work you have done is reduced to — what honestly feels like — nothing.
Our lead maritime injury attorney and law firm founder, Danny Russell, has experienced the complete disregard the insurance companies have for injury victims and their well-being firsthand, and understands that these corporate giants consistently place profits ahead of doing what is right. We are here to fight back.
Our East Baton Rouge Parish maritime injury attorneys believe all injury victims and their families deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, no matter where they live or work in the industry in Louisiana.
We truly understand that it is difficult for injury victims and their families to trust lawyers. We are here to change that too, so you can partner with someone you believe in — and more importantly, someone who believes in you.
You do not have to face your recovery or the insurance company alone. Contact us today to put our winning team in your corner.
