New Client Orientation

Thanks for visiting the New Client section of our Client Portal. You will need a password to access the below content.

Thank you for trusting our firm and our partners with your maritime injury case. We are here to walk you through this difficult process. Please start by reading the below information.

New Client Guide

What you’ll learn in this video:

This first video discusses our New Client Guide. Please watch this video first and then download the New Client Brochure to read up on how your case will move forward. This short guide educates you about issues we see again and again in Jones Act or maritime cases and how you should respond throughout the duration of your case.

Questionnaire Booklet

What you’ll learn in this video:

The second video you need to watch goes over the Questionnaire Booklet. We need you to download this booklet to fill out completely and return to our office. Enclosed are several pages of questions for you to answer to assist us in preparing your case.  Provide complete, and truthful answers to ALL of these questions. 

Keep Those Medicals Moving

What you’ll learn in this video:

This third video discusses why your medicals are important and what we need you to do for your doctor’s appointments and surgeries. Keep your doctor’s appointments and request appointments as you need them. Tell your doctor to run tests and discuss surgery if necessary. Lastly, watch how you word your health to your doctor. Be completely honest and clear about how you’re doing.

Working During Your Case

What you’ll learn in this video:

The fourth video covers whether or not you should work during your case and what jobs you should obtain. Working during your case can be tricky. After the doctor releases you, it’s OK to do some light work. You don’t want to take on a career position or high paying temp work. You should be doing something, if possible, by the time of your trial, especially if there’s a jury. The opposition can make your lack of job look like laziness, which won’t be good for you.

How Your Case Works

What you’ll learn in this video:

This last video will go over how your case works and what you can expect in the upcoming months. How does a personal injury lawsuit work? Are there fees? Do cases have to go to court? What if the case is lost? If you’ve been injured offshore, you may be like most of our clients and are worried about going to court. You have probably never been through something like this before.  But like most things that we worry about in life, it’s usually not as bad as we imagine it will be. We’re here to walk you through it.
