Injured Offshore Worker Says Maritime Lawyers at Zehl & Associates Are “Number One”


A Maritime Worker who was injured during an offshore crane accident explains why the Maritime Lawyers at Zehl & Associates are “Number One.”

The Crane Accident

“In the accident I was moving a walkway to the dock. We had just landed it down, so I went to go unlatch the crane because it was done lifting and everything was in place. As I walked and begin to cross over, the crane came up and caught me in between my leg and pulled me up seven foot in the air. I didn’t realize what happened until I hit the deck.”

How the Accident Affected Me and My Family

“It affected me pretty hard because I’m used to getting up, working, and making money for the family to make sure my family is taking care of, but it knocked me in a loop. It put me down to zero, which I was using all my 401K. I took money out of my 401K stock just to try to make it until I got in touch with Zehl and Associates, PC. Then all that stopped. They told me not to use my 401K, not to go in my stock anymore. They was going to take care of everything they needed to take care of to get me right again.”

“I know other law firms make you wait. They tell you that you got to wait two, three years for a settlement or going to court. Zehl and Associates, my case settled in a year and a half. I’m very pleased at my results.  I made the decision on what I wanted to settle for. It wasn’t my attorney telling me, “We’re gonna settle for this.” It was me making the decision on what I wanted to settle for.”
