APPLYING MARITIME LAW AND DEFENDING JONES ACT RIGHTS
The Glago Law Firm is well equipped to represent workers who have been injured on vessels, oil rigs or docked ships. We are familiar with maritime law, the Jones Act, and all.htmlects of demonstrating liability and proving the extent of damages in serious injury cases. Please contact our offices to request a free consultation focused on your injuries and legal options.
The many thousands in Louisiana and Southeast Texas who work on oil drilling rigs, ships and boats, and in shipyards have a right to protection against unsafe conditions and unreasonable risks. While some of this work may be recognized as inherently dangerous, strong legal recourse may be possible if you have been injured due to negligence or impacted by the wrongful death of a family member.
PROVEN SUCCESS IN CASES INVOLVING MARITIME LAW, OFFSHORE INJURIES, AND WORKPLACE NEGLIGENCE
Attorney Mark Glago has a strong record of obtaining just compensation for people who suffer serious injuries — and a reputation for taking cases all the way to trial when necessary. He has solid knowledge of the Jones Act, which covers seamen injured while working on their vessels. In addition, our firm consults and works with a strong network of other qualified maritime lawyers.
A veteran of over 2,500 cases and more than 160 trials, Mr. Glago has been instrumental in obtaining outcomes such as:
- A $500,000 settlement for a Jones Act seaman’s back injuries
- A $215,000 settlement for neck and back injuries a Jones Act seaman suffered on an oil rig
Our respected civil litigation firm has been directly involved in more than 15 class actions, and our notable trials and settlements speak to our skills and dedication. We have the experience to assess and pursue cases involving explosions, fires, exposure to toxic substances, and other possible negligence by employers and third-parties such as contractors and equipment manufacturers.
