Were You Injured While Working On A Container Ship Or Tanker Vessel?
Seamen working on container ships and tanker vessels face some of the most dangerous working conditions at sea or on inland waterways. The weight of the containers and equipment makes the decks dangerous and puts workers in harm’s way whenever something shifts during the passage or must be moved by hand or equipment.
If you were injured while working on a tanker ship or cargo vessel in U.S. coastal waters or waterways, you have the right to pursue compensation for medical care and cure and maintenance through U.S. admiralty laws with a maritime injury lawyer.
No matter what state you were injured in, a law firm admitted to practice in federal court may represent you as their maritime injury lawyer. If you were injured while working on a vessel or on the docks loading a commercial vessel, you are entitled to seek full and fair money damages from the vessel owner and other liable parties.
