Dangerous Working Conditions

Sailing aboard a vessel on rough seas results in some of the most slippery, dangerous working conditions in the world. In a split second, a sudden heave or a slip and fall could result in a snapped line or winch injury that can crush a limb and require amputation.

Even if you think you did something wrong, talk to our firm about the circumstances of your accident. Violations of admiralty law statutes places distinct liability on the part of the vessel owner, even in the event of comparative negligence on the part of the seaman.

We have experience representing injured seamen, fishermen and water workers in limb amputation and fracture injuries suffered in all types of maritime accidents, including:

  • Power tool injuries
  • Line injuries
  • Winch injuries
  • Falling equipment
  • Hatch and gangway injuries
  • Cargo and stores transport injuries
