Offshore Accidents

New Orleans Offshore Accident Lawyers

Over $35 billion recovered.  Our New Orleans maritime attorneys are proud of that number.

The compensation recovered for our offshore injury clients has changed the trajectory of lives.  It has provided injured offshore workers with the ability to sustain their families while they are unable to work.  It has provided women widowed by maritime accidents with a means to provide for young children left behind.

No firm is better equipped than HHK to handle your personal injury claim stemming from an offshore maritime accident.  Our firm’s experience with these types of claims led the court overseeing the DEEPWATER HORIZON litigation to select HHK partner, Steve Herman, as Co-Lead Counsel for the victims of the spill.

The DEEPWATER HORIZON catastrophe is widely considered to be the worst offshore maritime disaster in American history.  Eleven offshore workers died and many more were severely injured.  As Co-Lead Counsel, Steve is leading the charge to hold BP accountable for its gross failures that led to this tragic offshore maritime accident.

Our firm was instrumental in negotiating the uncapped, multi-billion dollar settlement with BP.  The settlement ended up being so favorable to victims of the spill that BP actually took the unprecedented step of appealing the terms of a settlement that it actually agreed to in writing.

Our firm was also instrumental in spear heading the BP trial, which many consider to be the largest maritime trial in American history.   The first phase of the trial focused on identifying the causes of the blowout, explosion, and subsequent oil spill.  The second phase of the trial focused on determining how much oil actually spilled into the Gulf of Mexico.

When deciding on a New Orleans maritime lawyer to represent you and your family in an offshore injury case, it is important to select a law firm that understands the complexities of the unique maritime laws and can maximize your recovery.

If you or a family member has been seriously injured or killed as a result of an offshore maritime accident, it is very important that you contact a highly skilled New Orleans maritime injury attorney before you discuss the accident with any company representatives.
