At the Law Offices of Lyle C. Cavin, Jr. & Associates, we understand that working on a sea vessel can be stressful and dangerous. As such, we also know that a ship’s crew may blow off steam by having a few drinks. There is nothing wrong with safely imbibing, but as you know, people may drink and drive, as well as boat and drive. This can present serious safety issues for California mariners.
You have worked on container ships for the better part of the last decade. It is a career that fits what you enjoy in life. You like the irregular hours, the physically demanding work and the unique lifestyle. You enjoy the job, and it pays the bills. You were always taught the value of hard work, and you have put that to good use. You're proud of what you've done.
As a variety of Californian jobs involve being out on the open water, it's to be expected that workers like you risk facing injury while on boats. The Law Offices of Lyle C. Cavin, Jr. & Associates, who handle maritime and personal injury law, are here to help you understand more about making maritime injury claims.
