Offshore Injuries

Maritime jobs are hazardous, with the construction industry running up there in terms of workplace risks and accidents that occur every year. The inherent danger of mishaps holds just about every job in the maritime sector. It's only part of the job. When you get hurt at work, your employer can be held liable for your injury if they are negligent in providing proper procedures for safety. Unlike other jobs, the compensation of the worker does not protect all maritime workers. Your employers must ensure that if you did not receive proper training, if your company did not maintain adequate maintenance of equipment and facilities, required excessive hours, failed to provide adequate safety measures or any other reasonable efforts to maintain a safe workplace, they may be held liable for the harm you have caused. We will help you prove in court that they were reckless, their irresponsibility led to the crash, and that's why you got hurt.


Explosions are hazardous and can lead to death or injuries. An eruption, by nature, is a rapid increase in pressure and an immediate release of steam. Most explosions generate high temperatures and cause gasses to be released into the air. There may be two broad categories of explosions: supersonic and subsonic. High explosives produce super-sonic blasts that fly through waves of noise. Subsonic explosives are going through a slow process of burning called deflagration. Both types of explosions can cause severe damage. Workers at industrial sites or those working close to flammable sources of fuel are more likely to be injured in these accidents. In most cases employers are responsible for these accidents either due to lack of safety measures or lack of training.


When a seaman dies on board or in an oil rig because it is unsafe or the employer has been negligent, family members may file a maritime lawsuit under the Death on the High Seas Act (DOHSA) provisions. Passed by Congress in 1920, DOHSA allows members of the family to file for damages against a vessel's negligent owner on behalf of maritime workers killed on and off the sea. While DOHSA was designed to refer to cases involving boats operating off the United States coast, its colonies or dependencies beyond the three nautical mile mark, the statute still includes deadly aircraft accidents in international waters. Demand for insurance from DOHSA usually covers funeral expenses, lack of current or planned financial support, rehabilitation expenditures, Any death-caused economic costs.
