 Maritime Accidents



Since 1985, the Wes Klinger Law Office, now PLLC, has represented many maritime clients who have suffered from injuries sustained offshore. We have helped people injured on cruise ships, whether they were workers or passengers. We have represented the families of employees injured or killed while working offshore in the Untied States and Canada. Wes Klinger Law Office has represented numerous maritime clients since 1981 from Texas and Louisiana. Our clients benefit from our extensive experience and record of success in maritime law.

Maritime injury claims may involve injured longshoremen, blue water seamen, offshore platform workers, maritime vessels, and virtually any injury to a maritime worker. Our firm has handled cases involving the Jones Act, the Death on the High Seas Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act and cases under the General Maritime Law of the United States.

Mr. Klinger has gone all the way up to the United States Supreme Court on a Maritime Worker case.

Maritime law in the United States is governed in large part by the Federal maritime statutes such as the Jones Act, 46 U.S.C 30104. It is complicated and fascinating and reflective historically of the federal intention and desire to protect those who “go down to the sea in ships.”
