We handle only Personal Injury & Jones Act Cases for merchant mariners, dock workers, and other maritime workers injured on the job.Contact Us
Despite COVID-19 causing disruptions to not only the transportation industry but the world at large, I wanted to assure you that The Young Firm is still open and actively working on our clients’ cases and assisting any new clients who are in need of help.
We executed our contingency plan and now have most of our office working remotely. We anticipate our entire office will be working remotely in the coming weeks. We set up our systems to ensure that we could continue to provide best in class legal services for our clients during unforeseen situations such as this.
Even though the Courts are closing for the next few weeks (at a minimum), and with policies of social isolation in place certain case activities must be postponed, there are still written activities and paperwork that we can, and will, do remotely to assist our clients and to move their cases forward.
In any event, we want to assure you that we are continuing to work on your case and will do everything we can during this time to ensure that when things return to normal, we are ready to roll.
COVID-19 is obviously of very serious concern and will likely cause economic and health disruptions for at least many weeks if not months. However, we must remember to try to stay positive and help those around us that need help. Sometimes crises first appear much worse than they end up being, and we can hope and pray this will turn out to be one such situation for all of us.
Stay safe and stay healthy.
At The Young Firm, maritime injury law isn’t just another practice area; it’s all we do. Our maritime injury lawyers handle cases on behalf of injured oil rig workers, vessel workers, longshoreman, harbor workers, and shipyard workers.
We have been representing injured seamen and maritime workers just like you throughout the Gulf Coast region, including Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, and Texas for more than 40 years.
We have handled cases against Diamond Offshore, Transocean, TODCO, Edison Chouest, Tidewater, Horizon Offshore and many, many other marine companies.
Maritime law is complicated. Don’t trust just any accident attorney with your case. Your case is too important to let an inexperienced lawyer handle. We know maritime law and you can benefit from that knowledge.
Call us to discuss how to get your bills covered and the medical care you need.

Jeremy suffered 2nd and 3rd-degree burns and received multiple skin graft surgeries. Despite the hardship he suffered, we were able to get him a $5 million settlement for his injuries.
“If you get hurt offshore, don’t second guess it. Seek medical attention, because at the end of the day, I’m sorry to say, you’re just a number, you’re just an able body or a strong back. Seek legal advice from Tim Young’s law firm. You won’t regret it.”
Jarvis sustained back & neck injuries during a basket transfer from a platform to a motor vessel. He was approved for a bone-fusion surgery and we settled his case for over a million dollars.
Throughout its history, our firm has remained true to its guiding principles: placing the needs of our clients like you above all else and preparing the strongest cases possible on their behalf. We have secured damages for clients injured on oil rigs off the Gulf Coast, on vessels in the Gulf of Mexico and on the Mississippi River, overseas, and elsewhere. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your claim, we will work tirelessly to help you obtain compensation. Each year we successfully resolve, through trial or settlement, most of these cases. We have obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of the injured and take great care to ensure that all of our clients receive personalized attention. We are proud of our past successes and the reputation for excellence we have worked hard to build.
