Texas Maritime Attorney – Protecting the Rights Crewmembers Injured in Texas

Working in the Texas maritime industry is a physically demanding and inherently dangerous profession. Maritime accidents can be traumatic and an injured worker might be off the job for months, years, and in some cases, forever. Medical expenses associated with the treatment and rehabilitation of a severe injury can easily run into the thousands of dollars, if not millions. The lost wages, hefty medical bills, and pain and suffering resulting from an accident can be overwhelming and leave victims and their family members unsure as where they can turn for help.

If you or someone you care about has been injured in an accident involving an offshore drilling rig, ship, jackup rig, fishing boat, barge or other type of maritime vessel and need legal assistance, the Willis Law Firm is here to help.  Based in Houston, Texas we are an experienced maritime injury law firm that has been helping injured workers and crewmembers throughout Texas and across the country for more than 30 years.  We are a strong and compassionate team of professionals who are focused on making sure that our clients recover maximum financial compensation when a serious maritime accident occurs.
