Offshore/Maritime Accidents

If you or someone you love is injured in an offshore or maritime accident, it is vital that you contact us as soon as possible. In the many years our Lafayette law firm has prosecuted maritime and offshore accident claims, we have learned that how the case is handled early on can make a great deal of difference in the final result. Your rights must be protected, and no firm is better prepared to protect you than The Glenn Armentor Law Corporation.

In the event of such an accident, the injured person and his family is usually confronted in the first few days by the lawyers and other representatives of the employer, the owner or operator of the work site and their insurance companies. These people are interested in spending as little money and time on the case as possible. They usually control the initial investigation, including access to the witnesses and the scene of the accident. By the time the victim or his survivors realize they need a lawyer to speak for them, to investigate the facts and to research the law, the other side is far better prepared. Donít let this happen to you. If you suspect you have a legal claim you can contact us online by using this form Ė or just call us anytime at 1-800-960-5551.
