Human Error and Maritime Accidents Attorney Louisiana
When working in the maritime industry, accidents are a common occurrence. In many cases, an accident leads to injury on a maritime vessel, due to human error. There have been reports of maritime accidents that are caused strictly due to the action of another person. From small fires to the improper usage of machinery, accidents can occur that lead to major injury or even death.
At Cueria Law Firm, we focus on helping seamen who have been injured due to the negligence of someone else. By learning more about your rights, you can find out if seeking legal counsel and compensation for your injuries are an option.
Because you are working with others out on the open water, you must be aware of your surroundings. You must trust your coworkers. Hopefully, you work with individuals who have been trained to operate machinery and how to act on the ship in a safe manner. However, there are ways that humans can interfere with the daily job in a negative way that can lead to an accident. Take for example fatigue. If a fellow employee is sleepy, they may fall asleep while working. This can lead to accidents when working on machinery or other areas of the ship.
A lack of technical knowledge can also lead to issues onboard the ship. If an individual is operating a crane and they do not know how to properly or do not follow protocols, an accident can occur due to dropped cargo. The victim can be severely injured or even killed due to the error of the crane operator.
Additional issues can arise from decision making by employees without all the proper information, procedures not followed properly or inadequate knowledge of the ship’s operating system. When an individual does not act accordingly, they can cause issues on board which can lead to others being hurt or worse, death.
Cell phone use has recently come to light as an issue on board seaworthy vessels. The Coast Guard recognizes that cell phone use can lead to distraction which leads to accidents. Ship owners are to make sure that rules are followed involving cell phone use so that employees are not distracted and cause an accident to occur.
At Cueria Law Firm, we have handled many cases involving injury victims of the maritime industry. It is important to have the proper legal representation so that you can receive the compensation you justly deserve when you are a victim of a maritime accident. With our Louisiana personal attorneys by your side, we will review your case and decide on the right course of action to see you receive the compensation you deserve based on your needs.
