Florida Offshore Injury Attorney

The typical Florida maritime worker may be unfamiliar with their options if they have suffered from an offshore injury. Let a Florida offshore injury attorney at Willis Law Firm help answer any questions you have and guide you toward a legal resolution for your injuries. 

What Should I Do If I Have Suffered a Maritime Injury in Florida Waterways?

First, seek immediate medical care and be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions to the letter, make sure you keep all of your medical records, and even consider keeping a journal of your ill effects and treatments. All of this documentation will provide critical evidence of your injuries and your suffering in the event of an insurance or legal claim. Your second priority should be to contact an experienced Florida offshore injury attorney at Willis Law Firm.

What Kind of Damages Can I Collect for My Injuries?

Workers’ compensation claims come with their own special set of damages, such as lost wages, but a legal Florida offshore injury claim makes all of the traditional personal injury damages available, such as economic damages like:

  • The cost of medical care
  • Property damages
  • Car rental
  • Loss of earnings
  • Cost of household services
  • Loss of earning capacity or future earnings

Non-economic injuries may also be available, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Inconvenience
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Disfigurement
  • Physical impairment
