Texas Offshore Drilling Lawyer
Anyone who works on a boat or rig on the high seas knows of the inherent risks that come along with the job. Despite these risks, however, seamen and other maritime workers should not have to accept that their health and their lives will be put at risk by the negligent actions of employers or other co-workers. Unfortunately, negligence and the lack of safety features contribute to many catastrophic accidents and wrongful deaths in the Gulf of Mexico every year.
Located in Corpus Christi and serving clients throughout the state of Texas, the Edwards Law Firm provides experienced representation for victims of offshore drilling accidents and other maritime law accidents. Since 1962, we have represented injured workers and their families in personal injury and wrongful death claims. We understand the dangerous environments that offshore workers deal with everyday, and we provide personalized and dedicated help when accidents occur.
