Choosing the right attorney makes all the difference in a personal injury case!

star

There are hundreds, if not thousands of personal injury attorneys. However, personal injury attorneys are not all the same. Each law firm has different goals as a business, and the strategies they use in their cases are aligned. Choosing a small firm with values that align with your personal goals for your case will give your case the attention and time it needs to get you the best possible outcome.

Frequent Maritime Accidents in Louisiana

frequent maritime accident attorneys louisiana

The maritime industry is one of the most dangerous industries in the world when considering accident and fatality rates. There are several ways that an employee in this industry can be injured, from a slip and fall on deck to an equipment failure. Understanding the types of accidents that can put you at risk can help you to avoid an injury or death. 

Negligence

A major contributing factor to an accident at sea is negligence. It is not uncommon for employees to be trained improperly and an accident occurs due to operating equipment in the wrong way, or for the employer to fail to provide the proper equipment on board the ship, which leads to an accident. At Cueria Law Firm, we deal with maritime accidents on a regular basis and find that negligence plays a major role in such cases. With the help of our Louisiana personal injury attorneys, you can file a claim when an injury occurs due to the negligent actions of someone else to receive the compensation you so justly deserve due to the pain and suffering as well as time missed from work. 

Crane Accidents

A common accident on a sea vessel involves crane work. Cranes are often used in the maritime industry to move heavy cargo. If a crane is not maintained on a ship, the result can be an accident, such as cargo falling and dropping on to an individual or an employee being hit by the crane. Improper training for crane machinery is also another common cause behind accidents out at sea. 

Oil Platform Accidents

If you are employed on an oil rig out at sea, common accidents aboard a platform can include fires and explosions. Most accidents on an oil rig will involve the handling of chemicals that are dangerous and flammable. When injured on an oil platform, it is important to have your case reviewed by our team. We can help determine the cause behind the accident and file a personal injury claim when this type of claim applies. With our help, you can receive the compensation you deserve based on the depth of your injury and who is at fault. 

All types of injuries can occur out at sea, such as slips and falls, crushing of limbs due to heavy equipment, burn injury from fire and more. When you are injured as a maritime worker due to the negligence of someone else, you may have a personal injury claim.

By contacting our office at Cueria Law Firm, we can review your case and begin the process of filing a claim to help you receive compensation. Let our expert attorneys help you fight for compensation.
