Offshore and maritime injuries are controlled by special laws that are in many respects different than the laws that apply to land-based accidents.
After spending several years defending offshore drilling corporations, industrial vessel operators and their insurers in injury claims and lawsuits filed against them, Price McNamara now puts that past experience to work to successfully represent accident victims injured while working on offshore drilling rigs and on commercial vessels in the Gulf of Mexico as well as inland waters.
Working in an offshore or maritime setting, whether it is on a jack-up drilling rig, an offshore platform or from a vessel is inherently dangerous. The work is performed among heavy, dangerous moving equipment, from heights, and is often complicated by wave action.
Depending upon the location, job description and circumstances of a particular offshore or maritime accident, one or more of a number of special laws may apply. These may include:
Offshore and maritime accident laws are complicated and different than Louisiana law.

I needed an attorney with a specific specialty and Price McNamara was definitely the right choice. His representation was based on principles that are probably unsurpassed by any other attorney in the field. McNamara represents individuals, not big-money corporations, like so many others in his field of specialty. He is a consummate professional, extremely knowledgeable
I found Mr. McNamara to be practical and efficient. He did what I needed in a reasonable amount of time, keeping me well informed and with excellent results. He communicated with me clearly and on a timely basis. I will use him in the future.
I am a current client of Mr. McNamara’s. He is very accessible and responds to my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. I find him to be very professional and knowledgeable, as well as ready, willing and able to address all of my questions and/or concerns.
I am an attorney. Price represented me, and in a separate suit represented my daughter, for injuries. He moved the cases at lightning speed and obtained maximum recovery. I was grateful and surprised. I would recommend Price to anyone who wants a top-notch attorney who gets results.
I would recommend Mr. Mcnanmara to anyone at any time. He was the best attorney that my family and I came in contact with. About three years ago we had a very tragic, accidental death in our family and the company knew that it was their fault but of course tried passing the buck. Mr.
Price and Sara are great. They helped us in a time of need. Their communication was always spot on and I never felt out of the loop with what was going on with our case.
Price is very professional, honest, and reliable. Whatever he says, he will follow through with the utmost integrity. He will turn over every stone and pays close attention to even the smallest detail. I’m glad I secured his services.
Without going into the painful details regarding the reason for having to hire Price, his compassion and communication helped my family during an extremely difficult time. If you need legal help because you or a family member was injured by something or someone else, don’t hesitate to call him.
