As Louisiana attorneys, we commonly provide services to maritime workers. The maritime industry is quite dangerous and can lead to burn injury or other personal injury issues. When a maritime employee is injured, they rely on our experienced New Orleans personal injury attorneys for assistance. However, now, many employees of this industry are traveling further from Louisiana to foreign waters for employment. After the oil spill took place in the Gulf of Mexico, deepwater drilling came to a standstill domestically. However, such drilling still takes place worldwide. This means that companies based in Louisiana are sending workers to foreign areas. Because of this, maritime workers need to know their rights and how they can receive legal assistance when traveling in other areas of the world.
Traveling Maritime Employees
Even though domestic maritime employees are traveling to foreign areas to continue with offshore work, we can still help when a legal need arises. The work is still dangerous and possibly more so being in a foreign area. Burn injury, machine-based injuries and even piracy violence can be an issue. Offshore accidents and issues with maritime piracy can lead to injury where the employee is seriously harmed, even permanently disabled. It is essential that maritime workers know their legal rights and file for a claim when compensation is due.
