Biloxi Maritime Accident Lawyer
Mississippi Offshore Injury Lawyers
Have you been injured while working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico? Are you concerned about being able to pay for the appropriate medical care, wages you have lost or will lose, and compensation for your pain, suffering and any scarring you may have suffered? Being injured on an oil rig, like being injured on a river barge or during any other kind of work on the water, is governed by the Jones Act.
The Jones Act gives you a three year statute of limitations in which to commence pursuing compensation for your injuries. The Jones Act is a federal law and as such, you would pursue any claim in federal court.

If you are searching for a Biloxi maritime accident attorney, our attorneys can help. We offer our experienced representation to clients all along Mississippi’s gulf coast.
