At SMSH we work to protect every person injured while working at sea. We specialize in Jones Act Seaman Injuries that occur on platforms, barges, jack-up rigs, supply boats, tankers, freighters, ocean-going vessels, and all other boats and vessels.
For over 5 decades, the lawyers of Schechter, McElwee, Shaffer and Harris have represented victims of serious personal injury including seamen, railroad workers, offshore workers, longshoremen and harbor workers from around the nation and.. around the world.
The firm has also had numerous outstanding recoveries in serious 18-wheeler and other commercial vehicle accidents. We have represented victims of auto and motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, construction and refinery accidents are also high priorities. The firm handles refinery and workplace injuries, and successfully represented workers injured in the recent British Petroleum Texas City Plant explosion.
Our Primary practice area is in state and federal courts located in Houston, Galveston, Beaumont, Angleton, Bay City, Corpus Christi and Brownsville, Texas, but our attorneys handle cases throughout Texas.
We were referred to Schechter, McElwee, Shaffer, and Harris by another worker who had an accident. Everyone was really nice and VERY responsive. They were able to show me my rights and helped me to understand the legal process of filing my claim.
