Representation From Someone Who Has Been There
When you come to the law firm of Goforth & Lilley in Lafayette for representation in an offshore accident case, you will get representation from a lawyer who knows the oil industry.
W. Alan Lilley worked in the Louisiana oil industry for a number of drilling contractors to pay for his education. This unique experience has been invaluable in handling cases involving offshore accidents.
You will get personal attention from an attorney who not only has experience in this line of work, but also has more than 25 years of experience providing legal representation. We will work hard to see that you get fair compensation.
Navigating Through Unique Laws
Offshore accidents are handled differently than accidents on land. In fact, depending on where exactly the accident happened, what type of accident it was and who was involved in the accident, any number of laws could apply.
Our experience means that we are familiar with maritime law including the Jones Act, and the Death on the High Seas Act (DOHSA). We know how to determine what laws will apply and we know how to do it efficiently as we move forward with your case.
Handling all Offshore Accident Cases
We can handle all types of offshore accident cases, including:
- Oil rig accidents (explosions, slip and falls, burns)
- Vessel accidents and unseaworthiness claims
- Helicopter crashes
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Diving accidents
You Pay Nothing Unless We Get Results
Offshore negligence and oil industry accident cases are normally handled on a contingency basis. This means that you are not expected to pay any legal fees or expenses until you get compensation.
