If you work offshore, you are regularly exposed to offshore accidents at work. Risks can come from dangerous work, the poor condition of the boat, or the negligence of your employer or your inability to ensure safety on the high seas. When sailors are involved in offshore accidents, they generally cannot receive the necessary medical attention immediately, least of all legal help. But the Jones Act contemplates the special conditions of offshore workers when defending their rights in a offshore accident at work.
SPECIALIZED LEGAL HELP IN OFFSHORE ACCIDENTS AT WORK
Only an attorney who specialized in offshore accidents at work can provide you with the necessary advice so that you receive the compensation you deserve. If you have suffered an accident at sea for work, immediately contact an offshore accident attorney so that they can immediately work on your case and collect all possible evidence. Generally, the witnesses to offshore accidents at work are people passing through or are very far from the home of the person who has suffered the accident. That is why it is essential that an attorney specialized in offshore labor law act immediately so as not to lose this valuable information.
