Michael Lamson has over 35 years experience as a personal injury lawyer representing clients who have suffered an on the job maritime injury. Maritime injury involves The Jones Act. The Jones Act is a federal law that provides protection to seamen, fishermen, longshoremen, dock workers and others who risk life and limb facing the hazards of the seas and other navigable waters.
If you are a fisherman who has been injured as the result of a shrimp boat accident, Michael Lamson is here to help. Shrimp boat accidents can occur when the work environment/boat is unseaworthy and proper safety requirements haven’t been followed. These types of accidents can be severe, causing disability, disfigurement, pain and suffering and even death.
Shrimp boat operators are required to provide a safe place to work and contrary to what their insurance company may say, they are liable for injuries that occur while a fisherman is on the job. Michael Lamson has worked aggressively for clients to win compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, disability and wrongful death. If you or a loved one has been involved in a shrimp boat accident, call the Law Office of Michael Lamson to review your case and receive valuable legal guidance and advice.
