Metairie and Jefferson Parish Admiralty Law Attorneys
If you have a maritime injury and would like to know if there is a possible claim to receive compensation for your maritime injuries, you could benefit from speaking with skilled attorneys with decades of experience in handling maritime injuries on behalf of injured longshoremen, harbor workers, sailors, maritime workers, seamen, passengers and fishermen.
Our dedicated, compassionate South Louisiana maritime law and personal injury lawyers can help. We are the Ates Law Firm in Destrehan and Gretna, serving clients in Greater New Orleans for 40 years.
While you work to recover from your accident injury, Robert Ates and Paula Adams Ates of the Ates Law Firm work hard to recover settlement damages for you — maximum financial compensation that reflects wages lost from time off the job, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Maritime law is an area of law that is very complex and requires a careful analysis of the facts. It includes federal laws that treat accident or injury cases involving maritime accidents suffered in connection with seafaring or ocean-going vessels, whether in the harbor or at sea, which are different from land-based accidents.
The Ates Law Firm is deeply committed to protecting the legal rights of marine workers, their families and all those who have been injured or have lost loved ones in marine accidents. If our selective, boutique personal injury law firm decides to pursue your case, we will investigate thoroughly, negotiate skillfully and litigate aggressively if necessary.
We offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case and answer your questions. To talk to our Gretna, Destrehan or New Orleans personal injury lawyers, call 888-874-9159 or fill out the contact form on this website.
