While working in the maritime industry, there are a lot of occupations that put workers at risk, this includes seamen and offshore employees who operate with and alongside derricks. Used on vessels, docks and oil rigs alike, a derrick is a large piece of machinery that can do serious harm when operated poorly or without safety precautions in place.

Derrick Accidents

Operating a derrick, or performing tasks related to the equipment, poses daily risks for maritime employees. Whether handling the derrick rigging and pumps, cleaning the equipment, performing maintenance, or inspecting the machinery, derrick operations are an intricate process in which a variety of things can go wrong for a maritime worker.  Even further, if employees do not have the right training or supervision, they are put even more at risk of accident or injury.

Derrick injuries can be serious or even fatal. A derrick accident is almost guaranteed to cause major damage and any employee that is involved may be seriously injured sometimes even resulting in broken bones, back and spine problems, amputated limbs and other serious harm. If you’ve been involved in a derrick accident, it is important to consult with a maritime injury attorney to get the support that you need.

Incidents can occur due to a variety of reasons, such as operator error, lack of safety in operations, incorrect training and more. If you were injured in a derrick accident and your company was at fault, you should make sure they are held accountable. A Jones Act lawyer can help you take your case to court to get the compensation you deserve.

The Cueria Law Firm has been operating in the New Orleans and Gulf Coast area for over twenty years. Our dedicated maritime lawyers will use their Jones Act expertise to analyze your accident and determine who exactly was at fault. Let us help make sure you and your family get the help that they need.
