Longshore Act Attorney Mobile AL – Gulf Coast


If you have been injured at a shipyard you should know your rights and remedies to avoid making critical mistakes that could result in delaying your medical recovery, reducing your benefits while off work and losing the full value of your inability to earn in the future.

I like to remind the people who call me that we each have different talents. If I am working alongside you at a shipyard, I would have to rely on you to keep me from making a mistake. If I don’t ask you “Am I doing this right?” my mistakes could have a major impact on the entire project. More importantly, my mistakes could have been avoided had I asked for your help before trying to do the job on my own.

Calling a lawyer for advice is not hiring a lawyer. I routinely take calls to answer questions from injured workers who basically want to know if everything is going as it should. These calls are free and confidential. The purpose of consulting with a lawyer who specializes in your type of case is to make sure you know your rights, that you are being treated  properly under the law and to keep you from making a mistake.

I look forward to hearing from you if you would like to discuss your case.
